Young Republicans Impressed By President Trump's Speech


A group of young Republicans in Roseville was paying close attention to President Trump's inauguration speech. The room was silent as the group listened to the new President.

Brandon Tony-James says he appreciated Trump's messages of inclusion.

"Trump has already demonstrated that with meeting with certain people that didn't vote for him during the election, people like Steve Harvey, people like Hall-of-Fame running back, Jim Brown, already meeting with them," says Tony-James. "So, it seem like Trump is engaged in working especially to improve the inner cities."

Eric Eisenhammer says he wished the speech was longer.

"I think it's going to be empowering for people across the board," says Esienhammer. "I think that people who opposed him are going to be happy with the results. They're going to be happy when communities are revitalized (and) jobs come back."

The group, mostly Sacramento State students, then wrote thank you letters to the troops as part of Operation Gratitude.
