Donald Trump stepped and swayed as he took his first dance as president to a rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” on Friday night.
The newly sworn-in commander in chief shared an intimate dance with wife Melania Trump at Friday’s Liberty Ball in Washington.
The pair held hands, with Trump mouthing some of the words, as three singers belted out the song. The commander in chief could be seen whispering in his wife’s ear and laughing.

Nancy Sinatra, the singer’s 78-year-old daughter, had posted a cryptic message earlier this week after reports surfaced that Trump chose the classic tune for his first dance song.
The “These Boots are Made for Walkin’” singer wrote in a tweet this week, “Just remember the first line of the song.”
The opening line of the 1969 hit written by Paul Anka is, “And now, the end is near.”
Sinatra later called the since-deleted post a “joke.”
Vice President Pence and his wife, Karen Pence, joined the Trumps onstage near the end of the Sinatra song. Trump’s adult children, along with their significant others, then filled the stage with their father for the final verses.
