In an inauguration speech that sounded much like a slight retooling of his rally speeches, President Trump seemed unfortunately stuck in campaign mode. Though some lines were superficially inclusive, President Trump eschewed a genuinely conciliatory tone, opting instead for self-gratification and tribal signaling with the overarching theme of himself as leader of a great movement.

"You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before."

Donald J Trump is now the 45th President of the United States of America. The time for campaigning is over. We've all heard the message countless times by now and those who would be persuaded by the campaign rhetoric have long since been won over. If Trump truly desires to expand his support and to unify the American people behind him, he's going to need to shift gears. In order to reach that point, President Trump needs to first realize that while he does in fact have millions of die hard (and vocal) supporters, his overall favorability is the worst of an incoming President in 40 years.

Playing to the core group of meme-obsessed politcult members will only go so far. He's already starting from a hole. Let's not forget that he lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes. The folks who voted for him as the alternative to an equally unpopular Hillary Clinton — not because they were enthralled by his persona or persuaded by his hazy vision of a greater America — won't keep supporting him if he doesn't turn the page.

Misjudging his support, President Trump predicted a couple weeks ago that he was "going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration."

He's in desperate need of a reality check.

Here's a side-by-side of the crowd on the National Mall at about 11:30 AM for President Obama's inauguration in 2009 (left) and the crowd for President Trump's inauguration at about 11:00 AM today (source):

Already on it man, here in about ten minute I'll call him and ask him to stop campaigning for you.

He's probably bored with this parade anyways.

THAT is what you get when people who support the country are working ,instead of PROTESTING ,only the LEFT has the armies of LAZY who have such time to waste.
The ones who support Trump are looking for JOBS.
YOU KNOW what Obama killed in 8 years,with the ACA rendering America part time workers
ONLY because of the INSANE rules on employers and insurance.
DUH.

I think he did well at carrying on the Bush presidency.

Something I wasn't to fond of.

I'd say here soon we should be able to do the same before and after comparisons with the welfare line. Good riddance to those lazy asses living off my taxes.

And here I thought he was busy golfing and "destroying America" for 8 years? I'm still waiting for martial law to be imposed nationwide and to be dragged off to one of those FEMA camps.

I don't think it's that. He just doesn't trust Trump. Any America is in the right to distrust anyone involved in government. Their words and actions never seem to connect.

He should still campaign for, and promote his ideas to the American people. I think it would be quite irresponsible not to.

It's a salesman tactic, say it enough times and it becomes real.

One thing I firmly hope is that he focuses on the people of the U.S rather than concentrating all efforts on a foreign policy that doesn't do your citizens any favours.

But what we also have to remember is that policy is dictated by the banks presently or in the U.S's case the Fed Reserve which is a conglomarate of the banks.

The first president to tackle that beast will be a brave one. I think Trump may just have a go.

Obama was the first black president, he had a lot of voters including me in his first 4 years, that crowd was cut in half in his second term, I didn't voted for him them.

Get over it, Trump is the president now.

BTW a president never stop campaigning.

Someone has to counter the Russians


But we all know the Russians got Trump the win by Internet trolling and fake news.

Which is cutting the other side short IMHO, I've seen propaganda from both sides equally, I'd say it negated itself.

So with that, congratulations to the opposition, keeping the good fight alive haha.
