Mr. Trump will recite the 35 words mandated by the Constitution:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
He will then deliver his inaugural address,
