A Million People Expected at Washington on Trump’s Swearing-in
More than 50 lawmakers are planning to boycott Friday’s inauguration day, two days before Donald Trump takes office, as President.
Additionally, Washington will turn into a virtual fortress ahead of Donald Trump's presidential inauguration on Friday, as the US capital braces for more than a quarter-million protesters expected during the Republican's swearing-in.
Police have forecast that some 900,000 people, both supporters and opponents, will flood Washington for the inauguration ceremony, which includes the swearing-in on the steps of the US Capitol and a parade to the White House along streets thronged with onlookers.
But Trump, for his part, is confident about his capabilities.
