    Trump quietly signs proclamation 9570, 1/20/17 'National day of Patriotic Devotion'

    WHAT THE FUCK? Can you spell messianic?? Gee, did OBAMA ever do this?

    Trump declares his Inauguration ‘National Day of Patriotic Devotion’ in proclamation littered with religious buzzwords

    One of Donald Trump’s first acts as president was to personally issue Proclamation 9570, which designates the day of his inauguration, January 20, 2017 as National Day of Patriotic Devotion. AlterNet discovered the quietly passed proclamation on the website for the Office of the Federal Register, a government office within the National Archives and Records Administration.

    The proclamation begins, “A new national pride stirs the American soul and inspires the American heart. We are one people, united by a common destiny and a shared purpose.” Trump announced the Day of Patriotic Devotion in order to, as the document says, “strengthen our bonds to each other and to our country.”

    The proclamation abounds with religious language, stating that, “we must maintain faith in our sacred values and heritage” and that there can be “no peace where people do not pray for it.” It denotes the date as “the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen.”

    Thanks for all the follow ups.

    To answer the question in the OP:

    Yes, Obama DID do this.

    It may be tradition and nothing more than symbolism, but there is a vast gulf between the two Presidents' language used in their respective proclamations.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 20, 2009, a National Day of Renewal and Reconciliation, and call upon all of our citizens to serve one another and the common purpose of remaking this Nation for our new century.
    NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 20, 2017, as National Day of Patriotic Devotion, in order to strengthen our bonds to each other and to our country -- and to renew the duties of Government to the people.
    I find it very telling wrt the direction this administration plans to take.
