Like it or not, Donald J. Trump is the nation’s 45th president. After one of the most controversial upsets in United States history, the reality-star-turned-politician was sworn into office today (January 20) in Washington, DC.

With that in mind, HipHopDX has collected some of the standout comments regarding President Trump’s transition into the leader of the free world.
