Seeds: This Friday, January 20th, President-elect Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America and Mike Pence will be sworn in as his Vice President.
Core: The musical performances, opening remarks, ceremony itself and some of the parade after will all be televised. The ceremony will start at 11:30 and President-elect Trump will deliver a short speech after he is sworn in. There will also be media coverage of the Inaugural Balls, so if you’re into fashion, stay tuned for those. If you live in or around D.C., expect a lot of traffic.
Skin: Dozens of Democrats have said that they will not be attending the ceremony, and some will be hosting protests instead.
Leaves: Many groups and organizations have said that they will be holding protests before, after, and during the Inauguration ceremony. The largest noted is the Women’s March on Washington, which expects some 200,000 people to join. However, there are many more expected to take place all around the country, not just in D.C.
