Washington, United States, Jan 20 – US President-elect Donald Trump on Friday attended the first event of his jam-packed inauguration day — a prayer service just hours before he takes the oath of office.

Trump, his wife Melania and his adult children arrived at St. John’s Church near the White House for what was expected to be an hour-long service before he heads for morning tea with outgoing President Barack Obama.

The Obamas and the Trumps will then travel the 2.5 miles (four kilometers) down Pennsylvania Avenue to the swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the Capitol.
