This boy just left a cheeky message about Donald Trump on camera

A woman protests against the new US President Donald Trump, in Mexico City during his inauguration day on January 20, 2017.

Over 200 protesters were arrested as brick-throwing vandals torched a vehicle and damaged half- dozen stores after a series of protests marring Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony gave way to violent street clashes here in the US.

Ms Greer warned that Mr Trump's presidency was "not a joke", adding: "This is for real and I think this march demonstrates that London understands that". The idea resonated powerfully with a large number of American voters. That's why his first act as President was to restate it. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) had a almost identical reaction, saying the new president's message was "very consistent" with Trump's pre-election pitch.

A busy week in the news as we count down to the Inauguration. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. It has always looked out for its interests, and then some.

The culprit: foreign industry and governments in spite of the fact that nearly every worldwide trade agreement and military alignment is dominated by the demands of the US.

Yesterday, instead of a rallying call of pride and unity, he chose again this time to tell every American that all was not well. In economic theory, trade is capable of being a win-win arrangement. Other protests are expected in other US cities. NAFTA was not a plot to crush America's neighbours. Many bore placards highlighting Mr Trump's misogynistic comments, allegations of racism or his refutation of climate change.

During his inauguration speech on Friday, Trump vowed to work for the good of the USA worker, saying, "Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families". Europe and Japan boomed. "The person we have in the Oval Office is under the influence of a foreign power", she said.

While Trump has been denouncing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as "obsolete", Defense Secretary-designate James Mattis, a retired Marine general, says the alliance is vital to USA interests and would have to be created if it didn't already exist. In his telling, deals have one victor and one loser. Somebody is getting taken to the cleaners, and somebody else is making out like a bandit. The idea that trade is like a poker game, where one player wins the pot and everyone else goes home with an empty wallet, appears to constitute nearly the entirety of his view of worldwide relations.

"Through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other", he said. Our industries, from oil to auto manufacturing, are highly interconnected.

Trump's new vision for America would demand some serious rethinking of the approach to the United States in India at the political as well as policy level. "Winning like never before". What we saw is what we have and we'll get. "We will bring back our borders". "We will bring back our wealth".

The confrontation began an hour before Trump took the oath of office and escalated several hours later as the crowd of protesters swelled to more than 1,000, some wearing gas masks and with arms chained together inside PVC pipe. Mexico, he asserted, "is a longstanding neighbour and friend of this country".

Trump vowed to reinforce old alliances and form new ones.

As he said this, his back was turned, quite literally, to the most powerful political leaders in the country - three former presidents, the members of their cabinets, the most senior Congressional leaders of both parties, the justices of the Supreme Court, the members of the Republican party who will now be tasked with getting Trump's agenda translated into law...
