Shia LaBeouf Livestream
Actor Shia LaBeouf is said to be launching a four-year protest at Donald Trump’s presidency which he will livestream. The star’s website dedicated to the project stated, “Commencing at 9am on January 20, 2017, the day of the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, the public is invited to deliver the words “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish.”
“In this way, the mantra “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US” acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.”
In a series of tweets from Christine Teigen, fashion model, she wrote, “Can u guys feel it? america is great again all of a sudden it’s so weird. he was right!
“Today turned out to be a beautiful day for twitter comedy. You guys are bonkers. I love you.”
Zoe Saldana Changing her Mind About Trump
Even celebrities that said they were prepared to give Trump a chance were put off by his inauguration speech. Zoe Saldana, wrote on Social Media, “I’m trying to be a respectful diligent American but now but as I start to watch this inauguration- Regression is the word that comes to mind.”
From Trump’s speech, it was clear that the focus of his administration would be on America. He said in his Inauguration speech, “We will follow two simple rules. Buy American and hire American.
“Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration on foreign affairs, will be made to protect American workers and American families.”
Trump’s speech has been compared to a campaign speech rather than inauguration speech by some political commentators.
