Inaugural Speeches

Maybe it is not completely fair to compare the two speeches as first of all the Obama's speech was much longer and covered variety of issues and Trump's speech was more an address really.

Sources: and


The only difference is about word American, which Obama mentioned only couple of times saying:

" For as much as government can do, and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies." Also, "...responsibility -- a recognition on the part of every American that we have duties to ourselves..."

But in that short address Trump mentioned American many times: American People, carnage, industry, workers, flag, destiny, buy, sell...

In Trump speech there is no word "common" while Obama talked about common purpose, good, defense or "...common humanity shall reveal itself...".

In divided world indeed the humanity seems that lost a lot of common since 2009, but let us believe that we find the ways to find again.
