Donald Trump Jr. shares throwback pics from inauguration weekend praising his dad's work
January 20 marked the two-year anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration. His son decided to share throwback pictures in remembrance of the big day.
Back in 2016, Donald Trump Jr. campaigned for his father's presidential run. Today, the businessman oversees the assets of the Trump Organization within a trust he controls.
As his father's eldest son, it makes sense that he would celebrate Trump's inauguration day. He shared two posts on social media of the big day of 2017. The pictures are found below.
The first photo featured Trump as he signed a document to officialize his new position as President of the United States. Behind him were his closest staff and family, including wife Melania, daughter Ivanka, and Trump Jr.
Trump Jr. wrote in the caption:
"2 years ago today. A great time for America. ususus #inauguration #anniversary #throwback #sunday."
A few hours later, he posted again with multiple photos of the day. The first pic was Trump's team standing in front of the Abraham Lincoln monumental statue in Washington D.C.
Other photos showed Trump as he raised his right hand to be sworn in. Another picture showing the family embracing each other was shared.
Candid photos of adorable kids having dinner at the White House were also posted up. Trump Jr.'s caption praised his father's work since his inauguration.
"Some more great throwback pics from inauguration weekend 2 years ago. It’s amazing to see all that’s been accomplished despite all the best efforts of the leftist media a democrats. "
He continued by asking:
"Imagine what @realdonaldtrump could get done with some cooperation???#throwback #flashback #washingtondc"
According to an Australian Conservative website, Trump has gotten a lot done despite the lack of cooperation. The group mentions economic growth, decreased minority unemployment rates, and success for small businesses.
Additionally, they espouse that Trump's administration helped the nation by pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, reducing funding to UN agencies, and restricting and deporting illegal immigrants.
The down under website suggested that Australia should make similar improvements in their government. Then they encouraged persons to celebrate with "a round of drinks" or by wearing the "MAGA" cap.
Meanwhile, First Lady Melania Trump also shared her joy at reaching the two-year inauguration anniversary. Like her stepson, she shared a throwback picture.
It featured the POTUS and the FLOTUS as they stood over the Presidential seal in the White House on inauguration day.
She captioned the tweet:
"It has been an unforgettable two years in the @WhiteHouse. I am honored to serve this great nation! us"
Melania has been serving through her "Be Best" anti-bullying campaign which she started in May 2018.
Of course, Trump himself remembered the day he was sworn in with his own Twitter post yesterday. It featured an edited clip of his 2017 inauguration speech.
Trump's inauguration anniversary comes amid the U.S.'s longest-running government shutdown. Interestingly enough, his one-year anniversary was also during a shutdown.
While the previous one lasted three days, this shutdown is going on for nearly one month. It's affected 800,000 federal employees and an unknown number of their family members.
Due to lack of pay, numerous governmental institutions are also running below full operation. Trump is blaming Democrats for not agreeing to spend the $5.7 billion he requested to build the wall.
The government has now been shut down on both anniversaries of Trump’s inauguration because he couldn’t broker a deal.— jordan (@JordanUhl) January 20, 2019
The wide-spread effects have even reached the White House. As he thwarts responsibility for the shutdown, he has had to cover at least one meal for his guests.
When the Clemson Tigers visited the White House for winning the national championships, Trump treated them to a banquet. He was met with tons of backlash for what he chose as the celebratory meal.
It's amazing how proud you guys are of this spread. I serve better food at my kid's birthday parties...and I'm no millionaire.— Tiffany Byrd (@T_Byrd519) January 15, 2019
The president purchased hundreds of hamburgers and other fast food meals for the football champions. He was proud to show off the all-American treats.
His pride made the comedic responses to the incident even more hilarious for many. Luckily, the players were offered better meals from celebrities like Michael Strahan and Quavo.
