Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel says Donald Trump 'made his convictions clear' in his inauguration speech.
When asked about America's new president's swearing-in on January 20, she said that transatlantic relations 'will not be less important in coming years'.
Merkel added she will 'always seek compromise', in her reaction to Mr Trump's speech.
Sources claim that while the inauguration was happening in Washington DC, the German leader attended the opening of an art museum in Potsdam, Germany.
All weekend it felt as though the new administration had a self-destruct button and was desperately searching for it.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer appears to be enraged that the press told the truth about the size of the Trump inauguration crowd.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the inauguration crowd had been 'the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period'.
