Kicking things off Jackie Evan Coe set to sing the national anthem as Donald Trump is sworn in on the capitol steps. Make America great again but the festive tiffs will be notably scaled down. Trump is slated to attend just two official inaugural balls and third party to salute the armed forces. The next first lady playing a key role. She's a full partner in the victory celebration for the president-elect. Trump has big plans for his first 100 days. First up, overhauling Obamacare. We have absolutely no choice.

Charges he's passionately denied. These are troubling things and the only fair thing to do is ask a lot of questions, very thorough questions and then make an opinion. And get ready for fireworks when lawmakers question trump's pick for secretary of state. Former Exxon mobile CEO Rex tillerson who has deep ties to Russia. I have concerns with his relationship with Vladimir Putin. As president Obama exits. The Obamas plan to stick around Washington while Sasha finishes high school.

After leaving the white house president Obama says his top priority is a nice long nap. Followed by a relaxing vacation after eight years here in Washington, he's looking forward to much needed r&r. Dan. Thank you very much. We appreciate it.
