Voices From Inauguration Day 2017

January 20, 2017

Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States this morning at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. In urban centers of the state, the event has been occasioned by protests, walkouts, and other planned rallies and demonstrations. These precede what is expected to be the largest inauguration-related demonstration in history set for tomorrow, when large crowds are expected to convene in cities around the world for marches in support of women’s rights and equality. Organizers for Seattle’s event expect 50,000 participants

Outside of the liberal stronghold of Seattle, in more rural areas, Trump supporters are celebrating. Hear from residents of outlying areas who are optimistic about the next four years and the campaign trail promises of President Trump.
