We have a new leader of the free world, Donald John Trump, who was sworn in today during his Inauguration in Washington D.C. And while the world tuned in to see and hear what the next U.S. President had to say, a few people took notice that Trump's words sounded quite familiar.

That's because, according to a tweet from some dude named Jeff Hollingsworth, "The Donald" used a quote quite similar to that of Bane from the movie The Dark Knight Rises, via BroBible.

Wait, no, that can't be right... or can it?

As the video above shows, Trump does, indeed, use the phrase, "We're giving the power back to you. The people." And, wouldn't you know it, Bane said something pretty similar while addressing the people of Gotham in the fictional superhero movie, using the words, "We give Gotham back to you!”

Seriously, here's video proof!


Of course, people on Twitter took notice of all this, tweeting some hilarious things to show that our next President might actually be a villain from a Batman movie.

OK, so this is really just a wild coincidence... well, so we hope!
