Donald Trump’s rhetoric is at odds with reality

I don't always agree with the editorial in the South China Morning Post, in fact most often don't. But I think this one today gets it pretty right on Trump's inauguration speech which I thought horrible. 
Interesting that this Editorial is so critical of Trump, given that he was recently schmoozing with Jack Ma, the owner of the SCMP. So, at least for now, the Post is maintaining its independence. Trump would cal the Post part of the "horrible, lying media"!
(Though, to be fair, I've yet to see the Post be critical of Xi Jinping, leader of our motherland....)
