San Diegan thrilled to get tickets to Inauguration Day ceremony

Trump's inaugural planning group struggled to attract entertainment for the event

At noon (local time), the term of the new administration officially begins.

Before the ceremony, Trump and his vice-president elect Mike Pence are set to lay a wreath at Arlington National Ceremony in order to pay respect to fallen members of the military.

But the B-Street Band - a Bruce Springsteen cover band - announced it is pulling out of performing at New Jersey's inaugural gala in Washington, D.C., amid backlash from the anti-Trump crowd. Pence will also make an appearance. Those who are performing include country singers Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood and rock group 3 Doors Down.

Trump recently named Hatch's chief of staff, Rob Porter, as an assistant to the president and White House staff secretary. An estimated 1.8 million people showed up for Barack Obama's first inauguration.

Meanwhile, Elton John, Andrea Bocelli and Charlotte Church have declined to perform at the inauguration. He's worked security for a number of USA presidents.

The swearing-in ceremony kicks off at 6:30 a.m. PST in Washington, the west front of the U.S. Capitol Building, overlooking the National Mall.

I can only imagine what the response would have been if Republicans, based on principle, chose to sit out of Obama's inauguration.

Dak to the Future was good enough for the present. "He did what he's done his whole career and made plays", Prescott said. Brady and Rodgers will duel Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan, respectively, for a chance to go to Super Bowl LI.

Who will be attending the ceremony? Odds are it will be longer than George Washington's second inaugural address which - at just 135 words - was the shortest ever. Speeches have ranged from 8,445 words to just 135.

Similar ads have been noted on other platforms, as well, paid for by the Presidential Inaugural Committee. "Then there's the broader goal of shutting down the entire city around it and creating a sense of paralysis that creates a headline that says, 'Trump's inauguration creates chaos'".

Christopher Geldart, the district's director of homeland security, says officials are planning for an inaugural turnout of 800,000 to 900,000 people.

"They should get tickets deservingly so", said Myers. The two main balls will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, according to The Washington Post. Trump, and his wife, Melania, are expected to make appearances at all three.

President Bill Clinton was the first to have a LGBT liaison official, and President Obama re-established a dedicated role for a "full-time liaison to the LGBT community" to formalise contact with the White House on LGBT equality issues.

In 2009, Obama campaigned on and banned corporate gifts and capped individual donations at $50,000 per person or $100,000 per couple following a particularly expensive campaign.
