Today is the first full day with Donald Trump as US president. Now we will see what he does with the great power he has been handed.
The first act he performed was to sign an executive order which weakens the Affordable Car Act also known as Obamacare. This has the potential to harm many millions of Americans who depend on this law for their medical insurance.
The measure of a man is what he does with power.
His inauguration speech is perhaps the worst US president inauguration speech in American history, read it here and judge for yourself. I have no idea what he means by “This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.” What “American carnage”?
We still have not seen Trump’s tax returns, we do not know what financial conflicts exist for him and his family, we do not know what relationship he has with Russia and if Russia did influence the election in Trump’s favor.
We do not know if Trump is in this for the money or for the good of the USA. We do not know if Trump will defend the US Constitution or ignore it and make more money and appoint his relatives to government positions like he has already done with his son-in-law. We do not know if he will take money from foreign governments which violates the US Constitution.
The true measure of a man is what he would do if he knew he would never be caught.

Today there were hundreds of thousands of Women’s March protestors across the US against the Trump presidency and what he may likely do.
Below are photos from one of these protests in San Diego sent to me by a friend who was there (photos by Ken Pyacek). Note the wide age range of the protesters and the signs.
I expect we will see many more protest like this as long as Trump is president.
Let us know what you think in the Comments.
