Donald Trump Inauguration Speech
Meanwhile, Tweeter users mocked the social media post of incoming US president showing him writing his own inauguration.
In the photo, Trump flashes a stern look as he holds a black pen and writes on a white legal pad. He captioned the image, “Writing my inaugural address at the Winter White House, Mar-a-Lago, three weeks ago. Looking forward to Friday. #Inauguration.”
Some Twitter users altered the image. One showed crayons on the desk, while another imagined the incoming president drawing some stick figures of himself and the “suckers” who voted for him. Another suggested Trump was writing a “thank you” letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
