President-Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities begin Thursday, January 19 with a wreath laying ceremony and an inauguration concert. Then the celebrations continue on Friday, January 20 for inauguration day. But if you’re planning ahead for Friday, you’ll likely want to know exactly what time the main event is happening: Trump’s swearing in ceremony. What time will Trump be sworn in as President of the United States tomorrow?
Trump’s swearing in ceremony is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. Eastern on Friday, but that’s just for the musical performances. The swearing-in itself, when Trump takes the Presidential Oath of Office, will take place a couple hours later. Opening remarks will start at 11:30 a.m. Then at noon, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. will swear in Donald Trump as President of the United States.
After he is sworn in, Trump will deliver his inauguration remarks.
Trump will be sworn in with the same Bible that President Lincoln used for his inauguration, CBS News reported. He will also use a Bible that his mother gave him in 1955. Lincoln’s Bible has only been used by Lincoln and by President Barack Obama in 2009 and 2013.
General admission doesn’t require a ticket. However, if you are attending with a color-coded ticket, you’ll want to show up early. Security gates open at 6 a.m. Eastern, even though the musical performance doesn’t start until 9:30 a.m. General admission does not require a ticket, but you’ll be farther away from the event.
