On Jan. 20, 2017, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, pledging emphatically to empower America’s “forgotten men and women.” Protesters made their voices heard not far from the inaugural parade.
Two years later, those closest to him, however, celebrated on social media.
First lady Melania Trump tweeted: It has been an unforgettable two years in the @WhiteHouse. I am honored to serve this great nation!”
The photo attached showed her and the president dancing at his inaugural ball.
Vice President Mike Pence tweeted: “Honored to serve as @POTUS Trump’s Vice President these past two years, working to deliver historic results for the American people - an economic boom, rolling back red tape, rebuilding our military & restoring American leadership on the world stage. PROMISES MADE, PROMISES KEPT!”
“Promises made, promises kept” has been a tagline for the Trump administration that has projected itself as a government of doers for the people, whose ideology is “America First.”
