As they entered St. John’s Cathedral (church)
As they exited St. John’s we watched in-coming President Trump and Melania walk to the awaiting vehicle, followed by incoming VP Mike Pence and his wife Karen.
As Pres. Obama began his morning
President Obama begins departure from the White House, He takes a walk through the Oval Office from there he walked the outside corridor of the White House, and waves to the photographers and says “Thank You”, a few minutes later V.P. Biden and his wife walk the same path on the outside corridor of the White House. We did not see Michelle, nor Malia or Sasha at this time. Nor did we see his mother-in-law that lived with the family at the Whitehouse. Malia (7/4/1998), Sasha (6/10/2001). Malia was 10 and Sasha was 7 when Obama became or 44th President. (Malia being 10 at time Pres. Obama took office – Barron is 10 at time Pres. Trump takes office).

Obama and his wife Michelle stand outside the Whitehouse and await the arrival of the motorcade which drove up to the front steps of Whitehouse. Soon Donald J. Trump exited vehicle, Melania followed carrying a package wrapped in aqua blue paper, with a simple bow (note the package wrapped in paper complimented her blue dress. Also note in 2000 Michelle Obama brought a gift (wrapped in white) to Laura Bush as they met at steps of Whitehouse).
Obama began to direct a photo op, handing the present off to a person in the Whitehouse, then took his place next to the incoming President Trump, while Melania and Michelle lead the way into the Whitehouse.

We watch the Trump children (Don Jr, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, and Barron) walk the halls (apparently somewhat ahead of their father). Camera’s then roll to watch as the children descend the steps to the outside area. All Smiles, huge happy smiles. A camera took a quick look at Hillary, who was not smiling at the moment.

We watched Michelle and VP Pres’s wife walk thru the halls toward outside, and then descend the steps, and take their seat on first row to the right of podium (just in front of Hillary.
We watched as Melania ascended down the steps. Shortly after Obama & Biden walked down the steps.
Then, we watched as Trump descended the steps to the outside area of Capitol Hill, his look was determination. Look of Knowing where he was at, and what was happening. An assurance, not a solemn look, no one of assurance. Knowing exactly why he was there, and what his mission is.
We watched as Mike Pence walked down, shaking hands with everyone …didn’t shake Bill Clinton’s hand, but Bill didn’t reach his hand out.
