Trump Tweets Message to American People As He Heads to DC for Inauguration

As he made his way to the nation’s capital Thursday morning for the first day of inauguration events, President-elect Donald Trump said that he will work hard to make his presidency a "great journey" for the American people.

"Getting ready to leave for Washington, D.C." he tweeted Thursday morning. "The journey begins and I will be working and fighting very hard to make it a great journey for ... the American people. I have no doubt that we will, together, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

Trump will be sworn in at noon Friday by US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

The president-elect also tweeted out a quote from Rev. Franklin Graham, who will be participating in Friday’s inauguration ceremony.

"'It wasn't Donald Trump that divided this country, this country has been divided for a long time!' Stated today by Reverend Franklin Graham," Trump wrote.
