Dear Lifehacker, I have just tried to unsubscribe from a marketing email from a business who I'd previously bought some items from in-store. However, when I clicked the unsubscribe link it automatically subscribed me to another email marketing service.

You can still check out Trump's entire inauguration speech here.)
