President Donald Trump made history in more ways than one on Friday when he took the oath of office. One unusual way he did so was by using some words that no other president has uttered during an inaugural address.
The majority of Trump’s speech focused on putting America first, and this led to plenty of references to the people — but some of the new president’s verbiage was drastically different from what other presidents have have used in their inaugural addresses, and they could indicate that Trump is determined to move the country in a positive direction.
Words like “Islamic,” “urban,” “infrastructure” and “solidarity” pointed to the fact that Trump wanted to let the people know he hadn’t forgotten the promises he made on the campaign trail.
In fact, The Washington Post tweeted a list of 30 words that no other president has used at his inauguration. Here is the complete list:
Among other things, Trump told the American people the the U.S. would “unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.”
As you’ll recall, President Barack Obama and other Democrats would never say “radical Islam” or “Islamic terrorism” for fear of marginalizing Muslims. That is clearly not one of Trump’s fears.
The president also said that while trillions of dollars have been sent overseas, America’s “infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay,” insinuating that such neglect would be a thing of the past.
He also told Americans that we will face challenges and confront hardships, “but we will get the job done.”
And that’s the good old American spirit.
Trump’s speech broke from tradition in many ways, which should have been expected, but these 30 words indicate that he isn’t afraid of running the country differently from his predecessors — and that almost has to be a good thing.
