The American people have exercised restraint with Donald Trump, considering the president’s “hateful rhetoric” against women, Muslims and immigrants, said an American analyst and journalist in Detroit.

Trump, whose election victory in November stunned the world, took the oath of office on Friday as thousands of people packed the streets of Washington and around the US to protest his presidency.

“Mass demonstrations against the inauguration of Donald Trump come at a time when many people around the United States are angry about the rhetoric of the current president,” Abayomi Azikiwe, editor at the Pan-African News Wire, told Press TV on Saturday.

“It is an amazement that the United States has allowed Donald Trump to be inaugurated, considering his lack of experience, his hateful rhetoric against African Americans, against immigrants, against Mexicans, against women,” he added.

The journalist explained that Trump’s presidency is a “mixture of white nationalism, populism, neo-fascism, racism and misogyny,” adding, “The Untied States cannot live alone. The people on the United States are much more diverse than what Donald Trump’s rhetoric is prepared to offer.”

The US capital was rocked by Women’s March on Saturday -- the second day of Trump’s presidency. Mass protests were being held around the country and across the world in solidarity with Washington marchers.
