Look Closely At What Was In Trump’s Right Hand As He Arrived For The Inauguration Yesterday

Today is the day that America has been looking forward to for eight torturous years under Barack Obama. Our former president will be gone for good and replaced with a capable man for the job. Donald Trump landed in Washington D.C. yesterday fro the start of the festivities, but all people could notice was what was in his right hand.

After first arriving in D.C. for a celebratory dinner the night before, then returning to New York City to accompany his First Lady back to their new home for the big day, Donald and Melania Trump landed for the last time before being sworn in. As the most powerful couple in the United States stepped off the plane onto the tarmac, a camera caught what was in Trump’s right hand that we haven’t seen in eight years from Barack Obama.

A couple soldiers flanked the bottom of the retractable stairs that descended from the plane, suited up and standing in salute of their new Commander-in-Chief. The same honor was given to Obama each time he landed, who couldn’t bring himself to respect these soldiers with a salute — unless he had a cup in that hand while doing it. However, that era of utter disrespect is over as America watched Trump give a firm, honorable salute with his right hand to these men who were there to greet him.

The gesture was a sight for sore eyes and one of the many things missing from the presidency for the past two terms. Those days of disrespect are over now that we have a leader in office who appreciates what these brave men and women do for our country and the freedom they defend with their lives.
