I realise people wanted change and so that is why Trump got elected but there is nothing aware about backing his stance against climate change or opposing political correctness. There may be some things extreme/wrong with political correctness but it frowns on those that are sexist and racist.

By seeking to ban all muslims from entering the US, Trump is provoking ISIS! Short sighted and inflammatory!

Power will quickly go to his head and I doubt that he will be able to resist groping some woman's genitals - no wonder why his wife looked so unhappy yesterday to be by his side!

I predict a short Presidency before he does something that will cause him to stand down...give him maybe a month, if that! Let's hope he can do some good before then.

He won't ban all muslims, and actually his power on climate change is limited since that is done at state level. The President doesn't have that much power.....real power lies with Congress

Looking at my Facebook timeline recently, there is so much hysteria but Obama leaving and Trump moving in. It's all coming across as Obama the good guy with the nice family and Noble Peace Prize, and Trump the bad guy billionaire fascist misogynist coming in to do harm. But "O-Bomber" has dropped more bombs than George W, and has spent 8 years involving the USA in continuous war.

The promises of any inaugurated president is often just hot air. Trump won't be banning all Muslims to the US, it's unfeasible and bad for business. The Mexican's won't be paying for building a wall across the border. This is just politicians empty rhetoric for the masses. Killary Clinton would just say anything to anyone if she thought she was getting their vote.

These power politicians are just a reflection of an already corrupt system, a system that 8 or 9 people own half the wealth of the world. We are living in a kleptocracy! So to keep this going, the kleptocrats put on a Hollywood media show on with the good guys and the bad guys, confusing the mind of the masses, and thereby stimulating division and hate.

Map shows where President Barack Obama dropped his 20,000 bombs:

So people can protest as much as they like (and so people should be allowed to - often!) but it can mask a deeper insight into what really is going on in the world.

Yes I just said that Trump was seeking to ban all muslims from entering the US - I realised it wasn't really feasible and amounted to rhetoric.

When you say Obama dropped more bombs than George W, given that even the President does not operate alone i.e. is himself manipulated by the powers that be, I think it is wrong to point the finger at him in shouldering the ultimate blame for this fact. After all, he wanted to close Guantanamo Bay didn't he? Obviously he was prevented from doing this.

Remember that Bernie Sanders has, in the past, voted for bombing. I rather think that it is not possible for an American politician to be a pacifist - such a one would not get elected in the first place. I don't know all that Obama didn't manage, that he would have wanted to - although I'd take a guess at more gun control - but the US Presidency is set up so that no president can achieve much without Congress. Obama had a democratic congress only for his first 2 years, and even then they didn't agree with everything he wanted. Trump has a republican congress. Whether or not they will do as he says remains to be seen.

The things that I find most concerning about Trump are that he seems to have no diplomacy - he might want closer ties with Russia, but at the expense of good relations with China! He thinks he can get his own way by bullying and threatening. And he reacts, he doesn't respond. He comes across as not being prepared to take any responsibility or to cope with not having his own way. These are not reassuring traits in the POTUS.

That is quite a problem, of course. There are 535 members of Congress. All but 8 of them have, at some time, declared that they don't believe in climate change. There's too much money in denial!

Just as I thought - amateur kneejerk reactions, volatile and myopic! A dangerous man.

He's used to getting his own way, isn't he? There's never been a reason for him to grow up.

I see that Trump is now in denial...already - disputing the size of the crowd that attended his inauguration day.

Guess he overlooked the photographic evidence! Furthermore....

Whether Trump is in denial or not, America now has a president whose first press release is a lie. And not just a lie - an easily refuted lie. That would have been unbelievable only a decade ago. We live in a different world.

Yes indeed. I heard a radio presenter calling this situation tantamount to being 'gas lighting' i.e. manipulate (someone) by psychological means into doubting their own sanity. It's a deliberate attempt to undermine the truth in the media in order to pave the way for his future agenda.

He is far too controversial and unstable. Like I say, I give him a month!

It's not just Trump. It's all his staff, as well.

A month? How do you think he can be got rid of? Two years, maybe, when Senate and House of Representatives elections occur. (However, I hope you're right!)

Yes but Trump tells his spokesman what to say doesn't he?

Well it's just the 2nd day and look how THAT is going!? He is not destined to last the distance, for sure. I just think that he will do something, quite soon probably, that will be deemed as going too far and thus be made to step down...bit of a no brainer!

Sure. And he's selected them for their abilities - including the ability to deny the truth.

Of course, that begs the question, would Pence be any better?

I don't know enough about what his policies might be but at least he has a history of being a politician and doesn't have such a volatile/unstable temperament!

Haven't a clue what the problem is. There's nothing special for any particular member that would prevent them from posting any differently to any other member (except new members who are moderated)

He's against LGBT rights and is against family planning of any sort. He has a track record of homophobic, racist and sexist statements.

Is he a catholic then (re. against family planning)? Main question is...would he 'better'/less damaging than Trump!

He was a Catholic. Then he became Evangelical. Now, he seems to swap between the two as suits his arguments.

Trump chose him as VP because they agreed about many things - mostly, I think, that they both wanted to be in power.

Reiki Pixie I am with you. Obama was (and is) a good man I am sure. But the nobel peace prize was awarded before he had the chance to do anything......I don't buy into the 'Saint' Obama story....

Trump chose him has VP because he knew he needed a proper politician and Pence was the only one willing to stand. Trump still has a lot of enemies in the GOP.

Really? You think presidents and prime ministers have never lied to us before?
