NORTH PLATTE, Neb.-- Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States of America.
"We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country," Trump said during his Inaugural Address Friday afternoon. "And restore its promise for all of our people."
Students at North Platte High School watched the businessman turned politician speak to the nation for the first time as President. One student said he is excited for Trump to take over.
"A lot of important things have been addressed," Will Phillips explained. "I think the way that Trump is going to come in and support us as small businesses and here in Nebraska, it's really going to impact us as a whole."
Other students said they are eager to see Trump support the middle class.
