Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States On Jan. 20, 2017
During his inauguration, thousands took to the streets in Washington, DC to voice their opposition to the new president. The day of Trump’s inauguration saw violent protests break out in the city, with hundreds being arrested, windows being broken and cars being burnt. The next day saw a different kind of protests where hundreds of thousands of men and women from around the country participated in the Women’s March on Washington which resulted in zero arrests.
I was in the nation’s capital for those first two contrasting days of the Trump Presidency.
