After months of name-calling, talk of building a wall, erased emails, unknown taxes, and “feeling the Bern,” President-elect Donald Trump will move into the White House.
He will be sworn into office as commander in chief on Jan. 24, making him the 45th president of the United States.
Trump has promised several things to the American people. According to a policy statement from Trump’s campaign website, he says he’s going to restore faith in the republic of those who have given up on it.
He thinks that if faith is restored, the citizens who have felt alienated for years will step forward and believe in the system once again. Perhaps helping with that cause is Trump’s outsider status. He will be the first president to have never previously held elected office nor served in the military.

“It was insanity,” Red Lion junior Melanie Tarnacki described the mall on Thanksgiving night, or the eve of Black Friday. Black Friday is the craze shopping event that occurs the day after Thanksgiving.
More than 154 million people will spend the holiday weekend shopping. This was an increase of 3 million people from 2015, according to the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights and Analytics.
The average shopper spent $289.19 Thanksgiving weekend, which was down only ten dollars from last year, NRF said. Of this, 74 percent were actually spent on gifts.
