On the same day he was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump made his new Twitter account official.
@POTUS likely won’t be the dumpster fire that was Trump’s original account — although he was still tweeting from it up until about 3 hours of this writing — but Slate‘s Forrest Whickman noticed something interesting about the initial cover photo that went up.A quick Google image search shows that the photo is from a series of images taken during Barack Obama‘s 2009 inauguration.

The photo has been swapped out a few times since then, with the current one showing Trump gazing wistfully out a White House window.
It’s gonna be a long 4 years.
