Donald Trump’s inauguration is just four days away now, and more information about what is set to take place has just been revealed.
“We’re going to have a very, very elegant day. The 20th is going to be something that will be very, very special, very beautiful,” President-elect Trump recently said of his inauguration, according to ABC News.
On Thursday night, an inauguration concert will be thrown in Trump’s honor from 4-6pm. Country singer Toby Keith, actor Jon Voight and the band 3 Doors Down are all set to appear at the concert. Trump will also speak at the concert, which will be held at the Lincoln Memorial.
Before the inauguration on Friday morning, Trump and Pence will attend church services at St. John’s Episcopal with their families. They will then go to the White House to have coffee with the Obamas.
The inauguration ceremony begins at 11:30 a.m., and the D.C. Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is planning for 800,000 to 900,000 people to attend the inauguration festivities.
Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri will open the ceremony and conduct the “Call to order.” Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, Reverend Dr. Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and the New Destiny Christina Center’s Pastor Paula White-Cain will then deliver the readings and invocation. Trump will be sworn in as president by Chief Justice John Roberts and he will then give his inauguration address.
After the inauguration is over, Trump and Pence will join the inauguration parade as it moves through the capitol. The parade will only last an hour and a half, shorter than parades of the past, as Trump is eager to get to work.
In celebration of Trump’s presidency, there will be three official inaugural balls in Washington, D.C. Two inaugural balls will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center while the third will be the invitation-only Salute to Our Armed Services Ball, in honor of the military, first responders and other service personnel.
