When Donald Trump took the oath of office on Inauguration Day, only about 200,000 people were on hand to watch it happen. The following day, nearly 500,000 protesters took part in the Women's March in Washington, D.C., which didn't go over well with the new president.

Trump on Women's March

The election of Donald Trump has only highlighted the political divide of the American people, with critics of the billionaire real estate mogul voicing their opposition on an almost daily basis. Only 24 hours after Trump was sworn into office, the aforementioned Women's March occurred in Washington, D.C., with several other demonstrations taking place across the country and around the world.

Since then, Trump and his administration have downplayed the protests, while pushing back at media reports over his own inauguration crowd. As reported by The Washington Post on January 24, the former host of "The Apprentice" was not happy about what went down.

According to sources in the White House, Donald Trump had a drastic mood change after the start of the Women's March, which has been described as "flashes of anger." The Washington Post reported that Trump switched on the TV to see the "massive demonstrations around the globe protesting his day-old presidency." Trump was reportedly "visibly enraged" as he watched news reports of his less than stellar crowd size, especially when compared to the Women's March.

The source explained that while White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was unpacking and rearranging his office, "Trump grew increasingly and visibly enraged." Since that time, the administration and their advisors have continued their feud with the media, using questionable information to back up their claims.

Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway has since come under fire for describing Trump administration falsehoods as "alternative facts."

Moving forward

With Donald Trump kicking off his first full week in the White House, the opposition to his presidency is expected to continue.

Since taking office, the new commander in chief has issued multiple executive orders, including, but not limited to, restarting the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, bringing back the anti-abortion "Global Gag Rule," while also taking the first steps to repeal Obamacare.
