The event was the 58th presidential inauguration held in Washington, D.C. from January 17 to 21, 2017. The inaugural committee raised an unprecedented $107 million, twice the amount raised by any previous inauguration committee.

An estimated 800,000 people attended the public ceremony held on Friday, January 20, 2017, at the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
