Wikipedia is a crowd-sourced information platform and allows anyone to edit the content of the pages. With the recent anticipated past inauguration of the 45th president of the United States, the page has undergone roughly eight changes that divide the supporters into pro-Obama and pro-Trump supporters. The Wikipedia page for the office of the president of the United States has selected editors for its content. On January 20th, 2017, Donald J. Trump received an official appointment as the 45th president of the United States, and the status of all the social media accounts of the presidential office was set to effect the change immediately.
Pro-Trump supporters vehemently opposed pro-Obama supporters who edited the article to read that Barrack Obama will remain to be president until 20th January. On 20th January, Obama supporting editors refused to accept the change to indicate that Trump was the new president by citing that his official term would begin at noon of the same day. The protected page has recently reflected the tumultuous changes of the office of the president. At 12 p.m. ET, the protected Wikipedia change had an update on its information, indicating that Donald J. Trump officially received his inauguration as the new president.
