For Donald Trump, Call for Unity Starts with Bleak Message

For Donald Trump, Call for Unity Starts with Bleak Message

Each of us will have specific personal reasons for being there, but the idea of the Women's March on Washington on the day after Donald Trump's inauguration went viral on social media immediately after his election in a way that can only mean that it struck a powerful common chord.

The newly sworn-in USA president's nationalistic and divisive remarks have sparked outrage among global citizens bringing out 2.5 million people worldwide to protest.

The organizers of the woman's rights event Saturday said that the crowd became too big for a planned march to the White House.

Trump, with all the trappings and ceremony of the presidency now solidly in his grasp, struck a refreshing opening tone for his new responsibilities by pledging to put the American people front and center in every decision he makes. Hundreds of women's march-related protests are scheduled across the USA and around the world.

"I would have been very dejected yesterday if I wasn't able to be here and experience this solidarity", she said as a young female approached her to sign a rainbow flag.

Police used pepper spray and stun grenades to prevent the chaos from spilling into Mr Trump's formal procession and evening balls.

USA government agencies said on Wednesday that world temperatures in 2016 hit a record high for the third year in a row. Meanwhile, Trump himself is a climate change skeptic who has also said he cares deeply about nature and clean air.

Rena Wilson, from North Carolina, said she hopes the women can send Trump a message that they're "not going anywhere".

It doesn't mean the Trump administration won't do those things, but it does mean that the new president decided that a speech dedicated entirely to the people was more appropriate for this inaugural address.

Inside the Capitol, a lunch will be held in honor of the new administration. Even here, however, we've questioned Trump's apparent disinterest in digging into USA intelligence allegations that Russian Federation meddled with the presidential contest in a bid to hand the blustery billionaire populist the upper hand.

"We're hoping for good weather and hoping for some unity", Jon-Paul Oldham, a firefighter from the state of CT, told the Associated Press news agency. Women will be marching in over 673 cities and towns in the U.S. and around the world. Here's the power. Here's the majority of America, right here. Democrats Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand plan to attend the march in their home cities of Boston and NY, respectively. The Constitution does not begin with 'I, the president.' It begins with 'We the people.'.

"I want to show the world that we are not going to stand for his demagoguery and his hateful rhetoric and his economic policies", he said. "When I was growing up, I was dyslexic and I did horribly in school - but singing was my passion", she said.

Trump has yet to comment on the event, but Hillary Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election, tweeted out her support for those who were standing up for what they believed in.
