The Aftermath of The Inauguration

On Friday, January 20, 2017 the 45th President was brought into office at the United States Presidential Inauguration. Donald Trump made a vow to put “America first” and take power out of the hands of Washington elite. The gender gap in the election was huge: among men, Trump won to Clinton 53 percent to 41 percent; however, among women, Clinton won 54 percent to 42 percent. In contrast, among white women. Trump beat Clinton 53 percent to 43 percent. The Women’s March held millions upon millions of protestors in numerous cities, including: Washington D.C. , New York City, Boston, Chicago, Miami, Oakland, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, and Seattle. Many protestors held signs going against the plans of the new administration and chanted, “Welcome to your first day, we will never go away.” Trump tweeted on the issue, “Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.” Shortly after, he tweeted, “Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don’t always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views.”Women's March
