President Donald Trump greeted the audience at the first of Friday's three inauguration balls with a resounding "we did it".
Before dancing to 'My Way' with First Lady Melania, the president told his supporters at the Liberty Ball that "today had been a great day".
He said: "People who weren't so nice to me, said we did a really good job."
"We began this journey and they said that we, we, and me, didn't have a chance. But we knew we were going to win," he continued.
Referring to the rain holding off during the inauguration, Mr Trump said: "It was like God was looking down on us."
He said: "And now the work begins. There are no games. We are not playing games.
"We're going to be producing results."
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'.
