The inauguration theme is "Uniquely American", a phrase that highlights the inaugural ceremony as "a uniquely American expression of our Constitutional system". The theme also stresses the peaceful transition of power, and that the American people are "united behind an enduring republic". The inaugural ceremonies held in Washington, D.C., from January 17 to 21, 2017, will include concerts, the swearing-in ceremony, luncheon and parade, inaugural balls, and the interfaith inaugural prayer service. The presidential oath will be administered to Trump during his swearing-in ceremony on January 20, 2017, by Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts, and the vice presidential oath of office will be administered to Pence by Associate Justice Clarence Thomas. Trump will be sworn in on the Lincoln Bible, the same used at the inauguration of Barack Obama, and on Trump's personal childhood Bible.
