Trump Touches Down in Washington to Become 45th U.S. President
The US Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said that there are grave security concerns during this presidential inauguration considering various opposing groups will be present in Washington for rallies.
A large number of congressional Democrats will be boycotting the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump on January 20th.
To boost attendance at the inaugural festivities, Mr Trump advertised on social media with a video in which he asks supporters to join him for "our moment in American history". Some marijuana advocates plan to hand out more than 4,000 joints as a form of protest in Washington's Dupont Circle neighborhood on Inauguration Day.
Later in the day, Trump will attend luncheons, review a US military formation from the Capitol building, preside over the inaugural parade alongside Pence and attend two official inaugural balls and an Armed Services Ball, according to the New York Times.
Taking the stage immediately after an inauguration concert at the memorial, Trump boasted about his electoral victory, and vowed that the voters that sent him to Washington would not be forgotten.
There will be three official inaugural balls in the evening, which the new President is expected to attend.
Donald Trump, who's been known to buck a convention or two, is following through with presidential tradition on Inauguration Eve and staying at the Blair House, the guest residence across from the White House.

Singer-songwriter Toby Keith and artist Lee Greenwood will be among the performers at the event. President Barack Obama, meanwhile, drew in a crowd of 1.8 million people in 2009. "I guarantee you in 100 days, he's going to get more done than any other candidate did in 100 days".
According to the fixed process, the vice president-elect takes the oath of office first on the Capitol's West Front, and the military band plays four ruffles and flourishes and "Hail, Columbia" following the oath. However, our own Lord of the Dance, Michael Flatley, has accepted an invitation to perform at one of the official Balls on Friday night.
