Donald Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States has sparked waves of mass protests against his administration as well as the disruption of many legislators’ town hall meetings. Melissa Deckman draws the parallels between the current emerging Resist Trump movement and 2009’s Tea Party protests against President Obama. She writes that while this new movement appears to have far more support than the Tea Party ever did, it faces significant challenges in translating this into significant electoral victories.
