Hello, today, we are talking about the inauguration of President-elect Trump.
Early in the afternoon of January 20, Donald Trump will become the 45th president of the United States after taking the oath of office at the Capitol, in what will be the country’s 58th inauguration ceremony.
The president-elect’s Inaugural Committee has released a schedule of official events for three days of celebrations. The weekend, according to the Trump team, kicks off on January 19.
Newsweek has provided this information for us.

Friday, January 20
Inaugural Swearing-In Ceremony
West Front of the U.S. Capitol Building
Ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m.; opening remarks at 11:30 a.m.; swearing in at noon by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr.
The Trump and Pence families will join them, as will members of Congress, the U.S. Supreme Court, diplomatic corps and other invited guests.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and America’s Got Talent alumna Jackie Evancho have accepted invitations to perform at Trump’s swearing-in ceremony. Breaking with a tradition that has stretched back 11 presidents, Trump has replaced the inauguration announcer, instead tapping Steve Ray, a Washington-based announcer who has worked with M-L-B’s Washington Nationals.
Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump, will attend the inauguration with her husband, former President Bill Clinton. Former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush, as well as former President Jimmy Carter, also will be there. Former presidents typically attend the ceremonial transfer of power. But Bush’s father, former President George H.W. Bush, won’t be in attendance because of his health.
on Inauguration day… the Parade
Where: Starts at the steps of the Capitol Building and proceeds along Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House.
When: Begins after the inauguration ends, around 3 p.m.
Details: Trump, Pence and their families will be escorted down Pennsylvania Avenue, followed by parade participants. A ticket is required for special viewing areas.
There will be Inaugural Balls all night long.
Then on Saturday, January 2, there will be a National Prayer Service
at the Washington National Cathedral.
The District of Columbia so far has spent the $19 million that was appropriated for the inauguration.
As with any inauguration, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to visit and celebrate the event, while others are planning to descend on the town to protest the incoming president and his vice president.
The U.S. Secret Service is the lead agency responsible for overseeing security plans for the inauguration. Bowser said it has prepared for all potential threats that may arise. In addition to the presence of D.C. police, Secret Service and other federal and local law enforcement officers, along with 3,000 police officers from other localities, will assist. Also, 5,000 National Guardsmen will help in downtown D.C. to protect the perimeter around the parade route.
Have a great day!
