Donald Trump is all set to take over the Oval Office on January 20. Here is everything you need to know about the Presidential Inauguration’s duration and Donald Trump’s inauguration speech.

After a whirlwind year of rigorous campaigning, controversial 70-year-old billionaire Donald Trump is all set to enter the White House as the 45th President of the United States. Trump will be sworn in as President at noon on January 20, but the inaugural celebration will actually kick-off a day earlier. Starting with the traditional wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, the Presidential Inauguration will also include a welcome concert at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. The cold air will be rife with chants of President-Elect Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again,” as he gives his inauguration speech after the swearing-in ceremony. Scroll down for more information on the Presidential Inauguration duration, including where you can watch Donald Trump’s inauguration speech video.

Donald Trump’s Inauguration Speech Duration

How long is the Presidential Inauguration? The Presidential Inauguration will commence on January 19, and lasts three days. The inaugural speech and swearing-in ceremony will take place on January 20. Unlike the 1.8 million people who appeared at President Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2008, the crowd estimates for Trump are expected to be far less. Security has reportedly been beefed up after at least 750,000 demonstrators threatened to “paralyze the city” in protest of Donald Trump’s win.

As is deemed, the ceremony will begin at noon on January 20. Donald Trump and Mike Pence will take an oath, and be sworn in as the next president and vice-president of the country.

After the swearing-in ceremony, Trump will follow in his predecessor’s footsteps and give his inaugural address. Traditionally, the presidential inauguration speech durations have varied in length, with President Barack Obama’s legendary inaugural address being 2,406 words, lasting a little over 20 minutes. Trump is reportedly writing the speech himself and plans on keeping it short but thought-provoking, as “he doesn’t want people standing out in the cold.” After President Trump’s speech, the celebrations will commence with a parade and three Inaugural Balls, ending with a national prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral the next morning.
