Trump inauguration: President vows to end 'American carnage'
Shortly after the ceremony Mr Trump was seen signing his first official actions as the 45th president.
He sent his Cabinet nominations to the Senate as well as a signed a proclamation for a national day of patriotism, according to Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
He also signed his first executive order as president, ordering federal agencies to ease the regulatory burdens associated with Barack Obama's health care laws, known as Obamacare, as the US Congress determines how to repeal and replace them.
The change of hands was reflected on the White House website, which was scrubbed of Mr Obama's policies and replaced with Mr Trump's new agenda.
The Trump administration has only listed six issues on the website: energy, foreign policy, jobs and growth, military, law enforcement and trade deals.
Critics pointed out the revamped site made no mention of civil rights, LGBT rights, healthcare or climate change.
