For Conservative Millennials, Trump’s Inauguration Signals New Beginning
Ese Olumhense from Washington, D.C. As Donald Trump took the oath of office in Washington, D.C. on Friday, much of the crowd assembled on the National Mall watched in silence. The air, swollen with excitement and anxiety, was relatively still, aside from sparse drops of rain cutting through. Towards the end of his oath, a group of twentysomethings, donning the iconic bright red “Make America Great Again” caps and beanies, started to chatter. One, frustrated, had tried to make a Snapchat video of the swearing-in, but accidentally deleted it. Another proudly showed off the final product of a face-swap image he made with the app, which imposed Trump’s features on his own face. They broke into laughter.
