First, let's acknowledge what we all know to be true: Trump is in deep, deep trouble -- in the pocket of Russians, surrounded by alt.right idiots, alone in his bathrobe in a mostly-empty White House -- and caught inside a disgusting »shit-sandwich«, so said his supporter who turned down the NSA job.

Never TrumpThe enormous outpouring of anti-Trump protesters in Washington D.C., and indeed the country and the world, on January 20 was a sight to behold. Tens of thousands came to Washington DC to inaugurate the resistance to Trump’s ultra-right wing, pro-Wall Street agenda.

Thousands of anti-Trump demonstrators filled Navy Memorial Plaza sidewalks and plaza right on the Parade Route. The Guardian newspaper reporter covering the route tweeted that demonstrators far outnumbered Trump supporters. The rally at the Navy Memorial was broadcast live on Pacifica Radio Network and by C-SPAN. It was an amazing day.

People's WorldDonald Trump has been sworn in as 45th president of the United States. The store is officially open. The government is now for sale.

At the same time, the resistance to Trump is being launched in communities across America. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected here tomorrow to protest Trump’s announced plans to curtail the rights of women and many more thousands are expected to demonstrate in cities across the nation.

Moreover, the resistance has reached the halls of Congress. Over 60 members of the U.S. House of Representatives boycotted today’s inaugural ceremonies.

PCdoBThe Republican Donald Trump won the United States presidential election, defeating Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party candidate, who was a favorite in all public opinion polls and was considered as unbeatable by the bourgeois media, its international policy analysts, academics, and Chancelleries around the world. President Barack Obama is also defeated, despite his widespread charisma and created popularity. Republicans also won legislative elections in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Portuguese Communist PartyThe elections for President, as well as for the Senate and House of Representatives, in the United States of America have displayed the profound problems, contradictions and inequalities which permeate that country's society, and which are expressions of the deepening structural crisis of capitalism that affects in particular the world's biggest imperialist power.
