On Thursday, Donald Trump’s inauguration celebration kicked off and hundreds of thousands of people poured into our nation’s capital for musical performances, inaugural balls, fireworks, a parade, and ultimately the inaugural address.
There have been plenty of special moments that have grabbed our attention but Jon Voight may have provided one of the most powerful.
The legendary actor introduced Sam Moore on Thursday but not before saying a few words about Donald Trump…
From The Daily Mail:
Jon Voight kicked off a concert to celebrate Donald Trump’s inauguration by complaining about the ‘barrage of lies’ the President-elect faced during his campaign.
The actor celebrated Trump’s election victory which he said had ‘answered all our prayers’ but sympathized with the businessmen whose ‘only desire’, he said,was ‘to make America great again’.
‘We have all been witness to a very gruelling year and a half for the president-elect.
‘We have been witness to a barrage of propaganda that left us all breathless with anticipation, not knowing if God could reverse all the negative lies against Mr Trump whose only desire was to make America great again.
‘He certainly didn’t need this job and yes, God answered all our prayers.’
The president-elect was in high spirits as he took in the festivities, dancing in his seat and clapping along to music in between private jokes with his wife.

Afterwards, having given a rousing speech where he promised to make America ‘greater than ever’, he thanked fans on Twitter for joining him at the concert.
‘Thank you for joining us at the Lincoln Memorial tonight- a very special evening! Together, we are going to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’
That got the crowd fired up.
Here’s some video from the special moment.
Regardless of how you feel about Trump, we should all be able to unite on a special day like this.
The peaceful transfer of power is something that sets Americans apart from a lot of other places in the world.
It’s a new era in American politics and the world will be watching.
