Donald Trump signs first orders as US president – but it’s all too boring for granddaughter Kai

The new president’s grandchildren were spotted next to him as he signed in, pulling faces and playing with his pens

Though today is all about Donald Trump and the first day of his presidency, his grandchildren may have stolen the limelight as he signed in to his new role.

Kai Trump, the nine-year-old daughter of Don Jr and Vanessa, could be seen leaning her head on her hand and twiddling the pens her grandfather was using while he signed in.

She was flanked by her brother Don the third, who was pulling faces as he passed the time at the ceremony.

Next to her on the other side was her other brother Tristan, who flashed a series of smiles as he watched his grandfather in the final stages of the presidential inauguration process.

Kai has accompanied her family on much of the campaign trail for her grandpa, but her brothers have been there less frequently.

The trio have two other siblings, called Spencer and Chloe.

Donald Trump has had congratulations from Pope Francis, who previously said “a person who thinks only about building walls is not Christian”.

“I pray that your decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nation’s commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide,” the Pope said.

“Under your leadership, may America’s stature continue to be measured above all by its concern for the poor, the outcast and those in need.”

He had congratulations from the head of Nato, which he called “obsolete and disproportionately too expensive”.
