Vice President-elect Mike Pence will take the oath of office with a Bible once used by conservative hero and former President Ronald Reagan, the inaugural committee for President-elect Trump announced.
Pence’s oath will be administered by Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas on the steps of the U.S. Capitol immediately after Trump is sworn into office by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to become the 45th president of the United States.
According to the inaugural committee, Thomas will be the first African-American in history to administer the oath of office to either the vice president or president.
Pence will be the first officeholder to use the Reagan family’s Bible since Reagan himself used it in his own inaugurations as California governor and U.S. president, the inaugural committee said.
