President-elect Donald Trump's inaugural address, to be given around noon on Friday in front of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., will reportedly cover three big topics and be relatively shorter in length than those of other former presidents.

A top Trump source disclosed to Axios' Jonathan Swan on Friday morning the three ideas that the president-elect wants to address with the American people during his speech.

The first concept Trump wants the speech to do is "address the deep structural problems facing American society."

David Rutz breaks down the most important news about the enemies of freedom, here and around the world, in this comprehensive morning newsletter.

The source added that the structural problems were problems that have spanned decades.

The second idea of the speech is that it will not focus on ideology.

"It's a rejection of ideological thinking," the source said. "Ideological thinking is always looking at the world through a strictly dogmatic prism. It's having a set of beliefs that are uncompromising."

The last idea that is supposed to be in the inaugural address is to relate the country to a family as a means of unifying the American people.

"The speech will convey ‘that a nation and its people and its affairs are like a family and you need to take care of them,'" Swan reported.

As for the length of the speech, the Axios newsletter said that it will be on the shorter side, closer to former President John F. Kennedy's address, which was around 1,364 words.

This would be a contrast to former President Bill Clinton, whose speech was almost 1,000 words longer, at around 2,155 words. But Clinton's speech was not quite as long as President Barack Obama's first inaugural address, which was about 2,404 words.

Trump reportedly drafted the speech himself.
