Their victories have not been your victories, their triumphs have not been your triumphs, and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. Many people wondered whether in his speeches, in the weeks and months to come, he would be true to what he said during the campaign trail.

He borrowed a lot from his previous speeches. In contrast with his election night speech, that was considerably more conciliatory than what we had today.

And in 1982, President Ronald Reagan continued that idea, proclaiming that same week of February a special opportunity to consider the meaning of an honorable term which has sometimes been misunderstood and misused and called upon schools to address the topic in class. In both of those cases, the proclamations signaled approval of Congress' prior designation of the week in question. (When exactly Trump's Day of Patriotism will fall, among other details about the proclamation, is unknown; the text was not immediately released.) But encouraging patriotism can quickly get into controversial territory. Case in point: Patriotism Day, 1924. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge had proclaimed a week in November to be American Education Week. Each day during the week was going to have a theme, and on that day students would hear speeches on the topic.

Very reminiscent of so many of his campaign rally speeches. A lot of familiar lines. And the familiar tone. This arguably was his opportunity to speak to those people who did not vote for him.

Only people who already fall within the line of succession are eligible for the role. The U.S. tradition of a designated survivor dates back to the Cold War era , and the concept has gotten a lot more press in recent months with the release of the ABC show Designated Survivor , which stars Kiefer Sutherland.

So whoever comes into power is managed by moderates. There will be interaction with President Putin. Because if there is an area of coordination over terrorism with America and Russia, that will work. Does he want to take American values to the Middle East? He said today in his speech and previous speeches, we will show our values, show by example.

What we do not know, to be fair, is at what point in the proceedings each of those photographs were taken. The Obama picture could have been at the height of the gathering, and the other one could have been, you know, before people really got there, but are they taking liberties? We don't know. This is going to be painful for Donald Trump because Trump is someone who, in many of his speeches and to defend himself, often mentions the number of people who come to his rallies. govern in the way he has managed this transition? That he has a mandate, some sort of popular backing, despite the fact that he lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes.

Many people have said this already of course, but in comparison with Barack Obama's inauguration speech eight years ago, it lacked all of those sort of rhetorical devices that great speeches are supposed to have, but perhaps for the people he is speaking to, they didn't need all of that? I fundamentally think Trump's vocabulary is far smaller.

The inauguration of a new president is always a balance between the national legacy and the promise of a fresh start. It is common for the speaker to try to set himself apart. Nevertheless, when Donald John Trump stood for the first time as the 45th President of the United States in a light rain to deliver his address, he went where no president has gone in more than a century. Trumps message was not on the order of John F. Kennedys torch passing, or Ronald Reagans declaration that government is the problem. It was not even a 21st century version of Andrew Jacksons attack on corrupt and incompetent Washington. In 16 mostly harsh, mostly confrontational minutes, Trump laid out a view of Americas destiny and place in the world that would alienate his predecessors dating back to Theodore Roosevelt and beyond. It may go down as one of the most consequentialor one of the most misleadingspeeches in the history of presidential inaugurations.

Donald Trump's inaugural address had all the trappings of his classic campaign speechesfilled with the defiant, populist themes he rode to victory but that previous presidents have typically eschewed to foster a moment of unity. Trump also set the bar extremely high for himself, vowing to wipe away Islamic terrorism, revive U.S. manufacturing and enrich a lagging middle class — all under the protectionistAmerica first” banner. Now it’s up to Trump to translate his promises into policy and usher his agenda through a Republican Congress at odds philosophically with much of his approach. Here’s a look at some of the key passages from Trump's speech and what to make of them: Trump painted a dark picture of the country as he embraced a protectionist ideology that’s been relegated mostly to the far left in recent decades.
