Casino owner and reality TV host Donald Trump was sworn in today as the 45th president of the United States.
It remains to be seen how his presidency will affect artists and the animation industry, but there is no question that it will have some kind of effect, whether it means changes to the outsourcing of animation or new limitations on creative expression. Even before coming into office, there have been reports that his administration has been mulling the elimination of all government arts and humanities funding, which is already a minuscule part of the federal budget, dwarfed by even the cost today’s inauguration activities.
Many throughout the animation industry have closely observed the election cycle and have already taken the time to express their views. Today’s tweets show that our community will continue to do so.
