Donald J. Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States on November 8, 2016. The peaceful transfer of power that occurs on every U.S. Inauguration Day is a hallmark of our country's democracy -- Please note: You cannot answer this journal until after the inaugural address actually happens -- the video will be posted on Inauguration Day.
In addition to your traditional response to your journals this week, you'll answer additional questions: Listen to/watch the video assigned. In your journal post, write what stands out in the speech to you and what resonates with you personally. And why? What makes President Trump's speech similar and/or different from the previous three speeches you heard this week. Does President Trump's inaugural address meet the three components of a great oratory? Why or why not?
