Donald J. Trump was sworn in today as the 45th president and pledged to be a president for all Americans in his inaugural speech.
“We are one nation — and their pain is our pain,” said Trump.”Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.
“The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.”
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, released the following statement on the inauguration of President Donald Trump:
“When Donald Trump took the oath of office today, he vowed to be a servant for all Americans. We will hold him to that oath,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “It is more important now than ever before for us to organize, mobilize, and fight in solidarity against hate and any attempts to roll back the rights of LGBTQ people. No matter who sits in the Oval Office, HRC won’t back down an inch in the fight for full equality and the equal dignity of each and every American. Forward.”
