Investors are looking to “sell the news” after Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration. Here’s a look at how stocks have performed after each swearing-in since Dwight Eisenhower took the oath of office in 1953.
WASHINGTON – From a morning stop at church through the swearing-in to the last dance of the evening, it’s going to be an inaugural marathon on Friday. Donald Trump will take Washington by storm, no matter what the weather. (Which, by the way, looks like rain.)
Some things to watch for on Inauguration Day:
WASHINGTON — The story of how Canada wound up owning one of the best places to throw a party in Washington. D.C. — where crowds will converge Friday as they always do for presidential inaugurations — begins, fittingly, with a presidential inauguration.
It starts with John F. Kennedy.
So here we are, eight days before America picks its poison, with most national polls showing a win for Hillary Clinton. If she pulls it off, she’ll become not only the first woman and first first lady to rise to the country’s highest office but also the first Democrat to succeed another two-term Democrat since Martin Van Buren succeeded Andrew Jackson in 1837.
WASHINGTON: Pledging to empower America’s “forgotten men and women”, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, taking command of a deeply divided nation and ushering in an unpredictable era in Washington. His victory gives Republicans control of the White House for the first time in eight years. Looking out over the crowd sprawled across the National Mall, Trump painted a bleak picture of the nation he now leads, lamenting crime, shuttered factories and depleted American leadership.
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly confronted business mogul Donald Trump over his support for a decades-old deportation program during an interview that aired Wednesday night.
“That was brutal what they did to those people to kick them back to [Mexico]. The stuff they did was really brutal. It could never happen today,” O’Reilly told the leading Republican presidential candidate.
When George Washington took the oath of office as the country’s first president in 1789, he placed his hand upon the Bible while speaking those solemn 35 words required by the Constitution, beginning a tradition that has come to define the pomp and circumstance of Inauguration Day.
And though the act of swearing upon a Bible held significance at the time, the particular book he chose did not.
Republicans have ridden the candidate carousel over the past few months but eventually one GOP contender will emerge to face President Obama in the much anticipated 2012 Presidential Election. As political experts predict a democratic or republican win, another group of pundits, market experts, will guess on how stocks will perform in 2012.
