What To Expect at Donald Trump’s Inauguration Ceremony

Published

on

Donald Trump will be sworn in officially as the 45th president of the United States on January 20th, two months after winning the elections.  Tom Barrack, Trump’s inauguration chairman said in a statement earlier in the month that the theme will be quite simple; one that will reflect on the harmony of the nation and identify with the common man other than the prestige and power of the President-elect. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming ceremony:

Music and entertainment will start at 9:30 am and opening remarks to follow at 11:30 am with the official transfer of power following thirty minutes later at noon when John Roberts, the Supreme Court Chief Justice will swear in Donald Trump.

Performances

Consistent with prior announcements, America’s Got Talent’s Jackie Evancho, country sensation Toby Keith and rock band 3 Doors Down are expected to perform. Singer Jennifer Holliday dropped out under the impression that her performance would be seen as support for Donald Trump and Mike Pence and an act against her beliefs as a member of the LGBT community.
Other notable performances will be by Mormon Tabernacle Choir and The Radio City Rockettes.

Who is coming?

It is expected that all living former presidents will be in attendance except for Bush senior due to his health condition. The Clintons will also be in attendance.

How can I watch?

All major TV networks will be airing the event live. Social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube will also be streaming live.

Trump will address the masses that will be gathered at the Capitol and also watching from elsewhere after being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, which is rumored to be quite short. Several men of the collar including Rev. Franklin Graham, Rabbi Marvin Hier and Bishop Wayne T. Jackson will give the benedictions right before Jackie Evancho sings the national anthem to conclude the ceremony.
