A hilarious video has emerged of former EastEnders star Shaun Williamson singing at the event – but all is not what it seems.
The spoof clip was edited very carefully to make it look like Barry from the BBC One soap was singing the Labi Siffre classic Something Inside So Strong as Donald and his family looked on.
Current EastEnders star Jake wood shared the clip on his Twitter page and wrote alongside it: "Beautiful from @ShaunWilliamson singing at Trumps inauguration," and some users actually believed him.

Barry from EastEnders appeared to have sung at Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony yesterday
"Trump has to import singers because no one here wants to perform for him. Glad Janine pushed him off the cliff," one person tweeted, referring to Barry's death on the popular soap.
A second person tweeted: "Barry will quite literally play any gig. He loves it," while a third added: "Just shows anything can happen last I heard Janine shoved Barry off a cliff – Oh and Donald Trump is president."
Others were in stitches over the fact that EastEnders had been referred to as a 'British documentary'.
