Over 90 protesters were arrested today by Washington DC police during the presidential inauguration events. With over 10,000 police and DHS security professionals, President Trump’s inauguration was a success. Planned disruption by professional protest organizers failed to stop America’s peaceful transition of power.
The partisan effort to diminish President Trump’s victory was led by 67 House Democrats representatives who chose to boycott the inauguration. They chose to ignore the tradition of a peaceful transition of power and turn the historic event into a shameful partisan protest.
While Trump supporters patiently waited out in the cold rainy weather to catch a glimpse of their new president, others set into motion planned violence and destruction. The #DistruptJ20 ‘movement’ spent thousands of dollars organizing, training protesters, and coordinating chaos to share their hatred of the new American president.
Since Trump’s surprise victory against Hillary Clinton in November, movements like Socialist Alternative, Black Lives Matter (BLM) and other liberal billionaire funded operations have plotted against the new republican led government.
Their efforts led to violence, property damage, and multiple arrests over the last few months. Messages of hatred, violence against women, and racism permeated the signs and messages of these organized protesting events.
