"We are just happy to be here and enjoy the moment," Ha said. "Enjoy the changing of hands that make America better."

She praised Trump's inaugural address saying it was short but meaningful.

"If I were Obama and I listened to the speech that President Trump said today, I would just cover up with a blanket," Ha said.

Like many Trump voters, she says the Obama years left her feeling ignored but she's hopeful with a new administration.

"And now I feel there's a new light, a new day, and this country is rebuilt again," Ha said.
