The official acts of Donald Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States begins today in Washington, with a ceremony in which Trump and his Vice President Mike Pence will lay a crown of flowers at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.
Donald Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States, which is expected to be attended by some 900,000 people tomorrow, will be marked by three days of celebrations, including the classic parade from the Capitol to the White House.
Trump and Pence will take office as the forty-fifth president and the forty-eighth vice president of the United States, respectively, on January 20 in a solemn ceremony on Capitol Hill.
Washington’s Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management estimates that between 800,000 and 900,000 people will cram the center of the U.S. capital to attend the celebrations.
“People are going to come en masse to Washington with record numbers,” Trump said Tuesday in his hyperactive Twitter account.
