Trump took the oath of office on the Capitol stairs on Jan. 20, 2017. 

He posted a video highlight reel of his first two years in the Oval Office, which included footage of his inauguration, images of him boarding Marine One, speaking at rallies, signing legislation, and addressing the United Nations.

The first couple had nothing on their public schedule Sunday but both were active on social media.

Melania Trump left for Florida on Thursday to spend the the long Martin Luther King holiday weekend at Mar-a-Lago.  The president is at the White House. 

The first lady posted a photo of her dancing with the president, wearing the white Hervé Pierre gown she wore to the inaugural balls, which is now in the Smithsonian. 

The president, in particular, railed against Democrats for rejecting his proposal to reopen the government.

Trump outlined a plan to end the government shutdown on Saturday, offering congressional Democrats three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients — including protection from deportation — and an extension of legal residence for people living in the country under ‘Temporary Protective Status’ designations.

Congressional Democrats rejected it even before he had a chance to formally propose it.

As his presidency hits its mid-mark, Trump is still waiting the findings from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russia’s role in the 2016 election as he struggles to fulfill his signature campaign promise: building a border wall.  

Trump’s inauguration was marked by his administration’s controversial claim that more people attended his than Barack Obama’s.

Then-press secretary Sean Spicer, in his first briefing for the media, stated the inauguration “was the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe” and accused the media of reporting false crowd estimates.

Photos comparisons cast doubt on Spicer’s claims.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Spicer used ‘alternative facts’ in his crowd estimate.

The Trump inauguration has been in the news as of late after reports donors ponied up a record $107 million for the event, including $10,000 for makeup for 20 aides,  $30,000 in per diem payments to dozens of contract staff members, in addition to their fully covered hotel rooms, room service orders, plane tickets and taxi rides, including some to drop off laundry, the New York Times reported.

The bill from the Trump International Hotel was more than $1.5 million.

Sunday also marks the 10th anniversary of Obama’s first inauguration.
