Power To The People: Trump's Inauguration Speech Echoes His Campaign

As Donald Trump takes office, a lot of people are talking about a "peaceful transfer of power."

But the most powerful take on a peaceful transfer might've come from the new president himself.

"Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people," Trump said.

Trump's speech for the inauguration ceremony echoed many from his campaign — what some called an anti-establishment theme with a focus on taking power from the so-called Washington elites.

And while he thanked former President Barack Obama for helping ease the transition, he said now is the time to focus on the people.

"The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer," Trump said.
