Donald J. Trump has become the 45th President of the United. Save for an impeachment or a second term, his last day in office will be January 20, 2021.
Yesterday was a busy day for Trump. His day began at 8 a.m. with a family breakfast before a church service. In his inaugural address, Trump made it clear that he intends to put “America first” in every policy he enacts. The full text of the address can be read here.
The day was filled with spectacle but also work. In his first few hours in office, Trump issued an executive order to start rolling back the Affordable Care Act, reports CNN. However, The New York Times reports that the order gave no specifics about which aspects of President Obama’s signature health care law he intended to target.
Here are the best clocks to count down the end of the Trump Presidency.

However, at the same time that Trump took the oath of office, the campaign for his impeachment began when the website ImpeachDonaldTrumpNow.org went live. The Washington Post reports, “The organizers behind the campaign, Free Speech for People and RootsAction, are hinging their case on Trump’s insistence on maintaining ownership of his luxury hotel and golf course business while in office.”
Earlier this month, bookies started taking bets that Trump won’t hold office that long. According to The Huffington Post, “At 4 p.m. Eastern on January 11, the British gambling company Ladbrokes said odds are even that Trump will be impeached or resign before his first term ends. By 5 p.m. the odds had risen even more, to 11-10. On January 19, Trump’s odds of leaving office before his first term had dropped back down to even.”
