Here's how the world's newspapers reacted to President Trump's inauguration
Trump’s promise of “America first” dominated the world’s headlines.

SO IT FINALLY happened.

Yesterday, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

He may not have drawn a big a crowd as Obama, but he has acted quickly in his new role by signing an executive order designed to undo elements of the Obamacare health reforms.

His inaugural speech did little to heal the divisions that he had stirred up during his divisive campaign.

Here’s how some of the newspapers from around the world reacted to the momentous event.
