    Donald Trump becomes the 45th President of the United States today. I thought it would be fun to set up a thread devoted to videos, memes, gif etc from his inauguration today.

    To say he is a divisive and controversial figure would be an understatement. He promises unity and change, but will be deliver?

    What kind of President do you think he'll make?

    I suspect he will get more than Obama got done given that the Republicans have a majority in both houses and would probably take quite a big political swing for the Democrats to win back a lot of seats.at the midterms. For all his divisive image he's not really proposing anything too radical (at least from the perspective of Americans who are deeply suspicious of things like the welfare state). And he seems like more of an isolationist more interested in defending US borders rather than being a warmongering hawk who wants to further US interests in other parts of the world.

    For all his faults, I do admire the no-nonsense way in which he talks. He's clearly ********ting without a script (or minimal rehearsal) in a lot of his speeches. Yet he never really seems to stumble and I think he has quite cleverly grasped onto concerns among voters that the US was losing its status as the most important country in the world and being made to look impotent by the actions of Russia.

    Hopefully he doesn't go the way of Obama though. For all the rallying cries of 'change!' during his first election, he gradually turned into just a highly polished mouthpiece for the team of advisors that surrounded him. Over time I think he became more and more arrogant and distant from the people who elected him in the first place. Hillary was a terrible candidate, she would have been exactly the same.

    Trump is hopefully a good thing for Brexit. Obama's 'back of the queue' comments and fact that his last formal conversation with a world leader as president was with Angela Merkel makes one think that Hillary's Brexit rhetoric would have been quite different to what Trump is currently saying.

    He is the embodiment of neoliberal, populist degeneracy but while he's here we may as well enjoy the effect this will have on the left.

    I'm really done with America, like we have to put up with so much sh*t from them, homophobia, gun violence, racism, Trump... can we just put them in the naughty corner and ignore them until they learn to be better? I feel like every day I am seeing something in the news from America that makes my heart sink. I feel sorry for the poor Americans who hate what they see going on around them but have to live it.

      Well at this point all we can do is hope for the best. I don't really care about how well or badly he performs as president economically, just so long as race relations improve and the fundie Christians don't get their way.
      I can't wait to see how he'll handle the foreign relations with my country and I hope he'll maintain the big brother relationship that the two countries share.
      That being said I'm not actually a Trump supporter but I'm willing to hold out hope.

      The thing I like best about you, and there are many, is that you never miss the chance to go way, way over the top.

      😁

      Infamy?

      Get a sense of proportion, please. Anyone would think he likes to grab people by the pussy, or pays the best working girls in the world to wee all over the bed his predecessor as President slept in!
