ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The Trumps rode in a limousine during the inaugural parade to the White House, waving at cheering well wishers en route, Friday (January 20). The couple and their 10-year-old-son Barron hopped out of the limo and walked for sections of it. Trump took power as the 45th president of the United States and pledged to end what he called an "American carnage" of rusted factories and crime in an inaugural address that was a populist and nationalist rallying cry. Striking a defiant tone, Trump said the American middle class has been devastated by the outsourcing of jobs abroad.
