Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Like No Other in History

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 21, 2017

Politically speaking, he doesn’t owe anything to anybody. He comes into the office with no strings attached. This has never happened in American political history, and it is extremely rare historically, except in cases of conquering generals.
But more than any President I have ever heard or read at an inaugural, he laid out his agenda, showed how that agenda is a fundamental break from the political past, and promised his supporters that he would not betray them. The implication is obvious: previous Presidents have all betrayed them. And they have. Four of them were standing behind him when he said it. This was a breach of etiquette. I loved it.

I felt the same. Trump isn’t perfect but there is hope (not in the Obama sense) something good might actually happen.
