If Donald Trump expected huge crowds at his inauguration parade in Washington, he must be a very disappointed man. The prepared stands were almost empty and there were few in between.
In contrast the pro women counter marches in Washington and around the United states attracted hundreds of thousands. attracted tens of thousands. Similar marches were organised around the world, including Australia. This is best shown via the sample photos shown below.
Whether he wants to admit it or not, Trump is the most unpopular president ever. Most Americans did not support him during the election and many of those who did count on him bringing about some meaningful change that would make their lives better, are waiting for the actions to match the words. The result has already been disappointing. Instead of using his position to put Wall Street in its place, representatives of Goldman Sachs and the Coch brothers are just two examples of those who are now openly in the team.
It is not a good start for the Donald.
