On Friday, Donald Trump was officially sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Shortly afterward, he delivered his inaugural address — a speech which, according to CNN and Trump's own Twitter account, was drafted by the new president himself. The transcript of Trump's inaugural address reemphasized many of the priorities he brought up during his campaign, including tightening borders and eradicating "radical Islamic terrorism."

During his speech, Trump called for improvements to American infrastructure, increased military funding, and investments in American workers and products. Moreover, despite carrying out a campaign that arguably thrived on the politics of division, Trump repeatedly urged people to center their American identity above all others.

"When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice," Trump said. "Whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots."

Trump then concluded his speech with his now-infamous campaign slogan.

"Together, we will make America strong again," Trump said at the end of his speech. "We will make America wealthy again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again, and yes, together, we will make America great again."
