Addressing the crowd, President Trump said: "Well, we did it. We did it. We began this journey and they said we, we, and me, we didn't have a chance but we knew we were going to win and we won."

After dancing alone for the song's first verse, they were joined on stage by Vice President Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence. The whole family was then invited to join the couple on stage.

In a brief speech before his dance, President Trump again taunted his critics. 'Today we had a great day. People that weren't so nice to me were saying that we did a really good job today.

"They hated to do it, but they did it and I respect that. I respect that but I have to say the crowd was unbelievable today.

"I looked at the rain which just never came. You know, we finished the speech, went inside for lunch, it poured, then we came outside.

"Amazingly, it was like God was looking down on us. I will tell you."

Thanking his fans, he paid tribute to the first lady, his "number one supporter".

"What she puts up with... thank you honey."

Having already signed his first executive orders, President Trump reminded supporters at the ticketed event how he vowed to get to work straight away.

"They happened to be my children and Mike's children."

Taking a final moment to thank his fans, he said; 'I want to thank everybody. We always felt we were going to win.
