He signed an executive order to roll back certain aspects of the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, a healthcare programme that he has vowed to repeal.
Closing out a barrier-breaking chapter in history, former President Barack Obama left the White House on Friday much the way he entered it eight years ago: insisting Americans have reason for optimism despite the national sense of unease.
On Saturday, Trump's new administration came under fire with millions in the USA and around the world carrying out rallies against the new president.
In any case, the Trump folks are right that their critics seized on the inaugural numbers to try to delegitimize his presidency.
About 2km from the National Mall, police gave chase to a group of about 100 people who smashed the windows of downtown businesses, including a Starbucks, a Bank of America and a McDonald's, as they denounced capitalism and Trump.
Another tweet said that Michelle's expression reflected the state of Americans for the next four years. They hated to do it, but they did it.
"People across Europe and the world are campaigning because Donald Trump's campaign has normalized misogynistic and sexist ideas", said Catherine Riley, a spokeswoman for the Women's Equality Party, a political party in Britain that has taken a leading role in organizing the rally. "The crowd was unbelievable today". He added, "We are going to do things that haven't been done in our country for many, many decades".
"From this day forward a new vision will govern our land", he said.
Many others demonstrated peacefully.
Trump was on his way back from the Central Intelligence Agency on Saturday when he got a first-hand look at the Women's March on Washington.
But the protesters said they felt Trump's election brought about a loss of civility, ethics and compassion, and they said they believe his administration will be a threat to civil rights.
Heavy traffic was also reported coming from Northern Virginia and Maryland into Washington D.C. and multiple parking garages began to fill up as people arrived from surrounding states for the march, according to the Washington Post.
