No one wants to attend Donald Trump’s inauguration. Well, I am sure there are many working class people who voted for Trump who would love to attend…but unfortunately cannot afford to do so, or take the time off from work.
And let’s be honest…Trump doesn’t care about the “regular folks”, he wants celebrities, and they just aren’t coming.
So, Trump has now announced that his inauguration will be shorter than usual, and much more low-key, because he wants to get to work as soon as possible.
The director of communications for the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC), Boris Epshteyn, said, “The inauguration and inaugural is a representation of the president-elect and a representation of the vice president-elect.”
Trump’s inauguration will have less official celebration throughout the day and evening so he can focus on getting “right to work” on behalf of the American people, officials involved in the planning process tell Breitbart News.
The inauguration itself will be less focused on the donor class and ritzy Washington insiders as in years past and more focused on the regular working class people across the country for whom Trump has become the champion.
The same will be happening with the official inaugural balls. Apparently no one wants to attend those either:
Usually a president will come in and they’ll have 10 official balls in addition to the unofficial balls that happen. President Obama had 10 in 2009, President Bush in 2001 and 2005 I believe had nine balls each in addition to the unofficial balls that took place. This president is going to attend three balls. We only have three official balls. We have two that are like the official balls, and then we have a third—it’s a tradition President Bush started in 2005 with the Commander-in-Chief ball, President Obama continued it and President Trump is also continuing it but expanding it. This ball, the general public can’t get a ticket. Historically, it’s only been active duty members of the military—specifically enlisted members. This year, we’ve expanded it to include military families, wounded warriors, veterans, and first responders as well. So you’ll have police, firemen, who will all be there. It’ll be a thank you for them for their service to our country.
CNN noted that Trump was planning to keep his inaugural speech “short,” but it was unclear what that meant. While Trump will be drafting the speech himself, he will receive input from his team in order to have the best possibly final product he can.
