In just a few hours, Donald Trump takes the oath of office to become the nation's 45th president.

The president-elect arrived in Washington Thursday and spent part of the day at the Trump International Hotel, where he wined and dined supporters and where he'll attend a pre-inauguration prayer breakfast Friday.

WBUR's Anthony Brooks is in Washington for the inauguration and joined Morning Edition to give us a sense of the mood there.
