Friday, January 20, 2017 – Donald Trump today took the oath of office for the presidency of the United States of America.
During his inauguration at the West Front of the US Capitol Building in Washington, D. C., Donald Trump solemnly swore that he would “faithfully execute” the duties of the Office of President of the United States and that he would – to the “best of his ability” – preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
A man who has little or no knowledge of how government works has taken on duties he dislikes or does not comprehend and may never faithfully execute.
A man who has never read his country’s Constitution – and who may never understand it if he does read it – has undertaken the responsibility of upholding the fundamental law of the land.
A man whose only education and experience in life is buying and selling real property (with a strong urge to stiff people big time) and whose goal is to get richer than anyone else has taken control of the most powerful office in the world.
A man who has demonstrated racial bias and ethnic discrimination has taken on the responsibility of promoting the social, economic, and political well-being of all the people in the most ethnically-diverse society on earth.
A man with a learning disability, a huge ego problem, and a potentially dangerous sensitiveness to criticism is now in charge of the executive branch of a government he has yet to learn about.
A man so unpredictable that he is thought of as being dangerous and a threat to society is now in charge of U. S. foreign policy.
A man who bragged about his ability to sexually assault women, who is obsessed with building a wall instead of bridges, who plans to deport more than 11 million people he does not like, and who gets peeved by critics whom he attacks with angry wee-morning hour Tweets has been sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
He might be known as the president of the United States, but Donald Trump is not truly the president of the United States.
Some of the people might say he’s their president, but the majority will proclaim:
“Donald Trump is not my president!”
