Donald Trump has certainly divided the nation.
via: GettySince winning his place in the White House back in 2017, President Trump has continued to divide opinions with his controversial politics and behavior.
It's been a strange couple of years...
via: GettyNo one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for President during the 2016 presidential campaigns.
But, this wasn't a publicity stunt.
via: GettyDonald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's to the right to bear arms, and generally to "make America great again."
And, while some American's were disappointed by these politics...
via: GettyOthers were intrigued.
And, when it came round to election day...
via: GettyThe country spoke, and Donald Trump won the Electoral College with 304 votes compared to 227 votes for Hillary Clinton.
It was a landslide victory.
via: GettyAnd the world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had their new leader - President Donald Trump.
And, ever since his success, it's been an eventful 2 years, to say the least.
via: GettyIt's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for example. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country is at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.
Oh, and the infamous Mexican wall still hasn't been built.
via: GettyThough he has announced his plans to divert $7.2 million from the Pentagon for the border wall construction.
But, of course, the President hasn't been a stranger to criticism and controversy...
via: GettyMuch of his behavior while acting as President has been questioned over the past couple of years, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.
And, last year...
via: GettyTalk of the President's inevitable impeachment suddenly became serious.
Trump was charged with 2 offenses.
via: GettyThe first was for abuse of power. It accused the President of trying to pressure Ukraine to smear his political rival, Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, in a bid to cheat his way into winning the 2020 elections.
It wasn't looking good.
via: GettyThe President was also accused of holding back major deals from Ukraine in an attempt to get the information - $400 million of military aid, to be precise.
As for the second charge?
via: GettyThe President was also accused of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.
And last month, the President was officially impeached.
via: GettyAfter months of denying any wrongdoing, Trump formally joined the small club as the third President in U.S. history to be impeached.
But, not all hope is gone for the President.
via: GettyDespite his impeachment and overwhelming waves of criticism, it turns out that the President still has a strong and loyal fan base.
Trump and first lady, Melania Trump, attended the College Football Playoff National Championships...
via: TwitterAnd they were greeted with an overwhelmingly warm reception, with the crowds cheering and screaming for the couple, which makes a nice change to his usual boos. They even received a standing ovation.
The game was between No. 1 Louisiana State University and No. 3 Clemson University...
via: TwitterSo it comes as no real shock that the President was welcomed so warmly, considering that Trump very easily won the state of Louisiana back in 2016.
It was an exceptional response.
via: TwitterThe president and first lady, smiling and waving, held hands as they traversed the field from the 15- to the 40-yard line with the honor guard. They were greeted by loud cheers and roaring chants of “USA! USA!" and “Four more years!"
