By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Donald Trump will be sworn in on Friday as the 45th president of the United States, taking power over a divided country after a savage campaign and setting the country on a new, uncertain path at home and abroad. In a ceremony likely to draw 900,000 people, including protesters, Trump and his vice president, Mike Pence, will take the oath of office at midday (1700 GMT) outside the domed U.S. Capitol, with U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts presiding. "It all begins today!" Trump wrote in a note on Twitter at about 7:30 a.m. "I will see you at 11:00 A.M. for the swearing-in.
Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States Friday -- winning vindication for his bare-knuckle White House bid and beginning a four-year term that promises to shake up Washington and the world.

In the cool Washington dawn, his most ardent supporters ignored forecasts of rain and began to make their way by metro, car and on foot to take part in history.
