Mr Trump's @POTUS account has gained millions of followers since its launch, as all 13.6m followers of Barack Obama's account - now archived at @POTUS44 - are in the process of being ported over to the new Trump account. A bust of Winston Churchill replaced a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. and gold drapes were hung, replacing crimson ones. "First, we're going to take a little break", Michelle explains with a laugh.

The terms "Executive orders" and "Executive actions" got tossed around a lot during the campaign with eventual victor Donald Trump going after President Obama's penchant for occasionally using them as opposed to seeking a legislative remedy. But in fact, there are many reports that confirmed that the National Park Services has been barred from counting the numbers.

Trump insisted, twice, that the crowd extended all the way to the Washington Monument, about 1.3 miles to the west of the U.S. Capitol, where Friday's ceremony was held.

That said, Spicer still insisted that the inauguration crowd was "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration-period, both in person and around the globe".

Spicer claimed a picture printed in the New York Times todaymore accurately represented the crowd, showcasing its "intensity". "These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong".

Trump has long used the media as a foil during his unconventional climb to the White House. He said that he had looked at the particulars of the case and felt that commuting the sentence was appropriate.

Steve Doig, a professor of journalism at Arizona State University, has provided estimates of crowds at past inaugurals, and is well-versed in the challenges they present. "We the People." "We shall overcome."Yes, we can". It went all the way back to the Washington Monument. Now that's not bad, but it's a lie.

Trump also signalled the possibility of a more aggressive approach against Daesh.

Trump said the news outlets will pay a "big price" for what he claims is dishonesty.

Spicer's comments were even more acidic. Obama said his supporters had transcended the obstacles posed by entrenched political powers by finding bonds of unity with Americans of all stripes.

Press Secretary Spicer stated in a press conference that the numbers originally portrayed by the media could not be accurate, because "nobody had numbers".
