Donald J. Trump declares a new movement at inauguration

buzzz worthy. . .

On a cold, misty January day Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.  Trump struck a different tone in his speech than any of the former presidents in attendance (Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush), stating he was leading a movement to put America first again. The populist leader catered to those who voted for him saying he would work to place the power back into the hands of the people and expects do nothing politicians to take action.

The speech was criticized in the media for being too "dark" for an inauguration.

Prior to taking the Oath of Office, in the morning of Jan. 20 Trump and his wife Melania attended a customary tea at the White House hosted by outgoing President and First Lady Obama.  While speaking form the steps of the U.S. Capitol, the newly minted POTUS thanked the Obamas for being "magnificent" during his transition to power.

Trump, 70, displayed a completely different presentation from his divisive style on the campaign trail in his inaugural address and called for the nation to unify as God's will.

Pastor Franklin Graham noted that as Trump began to speak rain fell,a symbol of God's blessing.

But blocks away, it was evident that not everyone who came to the event came to celebrate Trump's win.  An unruly Trump protesters were disbanded with smoke bombs after destroying the windows of a Starbucks and Bank of America.

Due to the controversy around election results, many voters boycotted the inauguration in their own way. From the refusal to tune in or attend  to using the #notmypresident hashtag to de-legitimize the election, there were signs Trump did not receive the warmest  Washington welcome. Crowds were not as thick as he'd boasted they would be.  Many stands along the parade route were completely empty. The inauguration festivities  also had fewer A-list celebrities involved who were invited to perform  shied away from participating to satisfy their fans. Yet, according to Nielsen, TV ratings for the Trump inauguration were the second highest since Ronald Reagan.

Various news poll show Trump enter the presidency with a historically low favorability rating at around 40 percent.
