During Obama’s eight years in office, he only fought for a few, but never fought for the majority of the American people. In his inauguration speech, President Trump vowed to fight for the American people.
Donald Trump assumed the nation’s highest office Friday as the 45th president of the United States, vowing in a tough inaugural address to restore prosperity and “fight” for the country “with every breath.”
In a succinct speech heavy on populist themes, the new president told Americans across the country they will “never be ignored again” and promised concrete results.
“The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action,” he said.
The president addressed a packed crowd of spectators stretching from the Capitol across the National Mall on a mild but overcast and at-times drizzly day, after taking the oath of office along with Vice President Mike Pence. The speech did not delve into policy details, and rather reprised objectives from his 2016 campaign on trade, immigration and national security.
