In His Inaugural Address, Trump Blasts Obama’s Divided America While Pledging To Return ‘Power To The People’

Sunday, 22 January 2017

President Trump and President Obama, along with members of their respective administrations and members of Congress in attendance, exchanged pleasantries and small talk at the inauguration of the billionaire real estate mogul-turned-politician. But during Trump’s inauguration speech, he assailed Washington’s ‘business as usual’ culture, as well as several of Obama’s policy failures, without actually calling the former president out.

“Today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American people,” he said in his inaugural address, which lasted less than 20 minutes, Circa reported.
