On January 20, 2017 our new president was inaugurated into the White House and officially transformed from President elect to the President of the United States of America. This inauguration definitely came with a huge amount of controversy. Donald Trump has successfully became the President with the highest disapproval rating when inaugurated into office. This being said, there are also many who do approve of Donald Trump and can’t wait to see what he has in store for the country. If looking on social media outlets such as twitter, Instagram, and even snapchat, most people speaking out seem to be against Trump. There are also positive posts about his like this following one.
Many voters who voted for Trump look at this day as a positive. For these people, today marks a day of change. For the majority of these voters, they were not impressed with what Obama has done and see this day as a great day of change. They think the country needs to be turned around and they believe this is the time when this will finally happen. For these voters they feel like the day they’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. On the other hand there were people reacting in other ways. This tweet shows that side.
Many protestors took to the streets to protest the Trump inauguration. These people believe that what Trump stands for is very misogynistic, racist, and homophobic. These people are doing whatever it takes to try and get their word out their. You will see on news sites like CNN these sides of the story and what they are fighting for. Protests like the million women march had a large number of women and people marching in the name of women protest in D.C. the day after the inauguration. These protests are peaceful and are people who feel like they are unheard trying to get their voice out. This day to these people is a day of horror. They believe after this day, their voices will no longer be heard and they will no longer have the rights they deserve.
This day is a very split day for the United States of America. The country seems to be split and many don’t know if it will be fixed. The future of the country now rides on the shoulders of Donald Trump.
