Security officials are braced for large numbers of protesters, along with nearly a million supporters, descending on Washington DC for Donald Trump's inauguration as president of the United States.
Some 10,500 police, FBI, Secret Service and National Guardsmen will secure the inauguration. As many as 750,000 protesters have threatened to 'paralyse' the city on January 20.
The biggest single protest is expected to take place the following day - the Women's March on Washington.

Trump inauguration day events
"I do solemnly swear..." with these words, president-elect Donald Trump will take the oath of office on January 20, to formally become the 45th President of the United States.

Since 1901 the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies has been responsible for the planning and execution of the swearing-in ceremonies and the luncheon for the Inauguration of the President of the United States at the US Capitol.

On January 20, 250,000 people who scored one of the colour-coded tickets, will get a close view of the swearing-in ceremony from the Capitol grounds.

There will be three official inaugural balls that then-President Trump and First Lady Melania will attend: a military Commander-in-Chief Ball and two official inaugural balls at the Washington Convention Centre.

Upon being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, Trump will move quickly to implement the immediate priorities of an agenda which promises to "make America great again".
