On Friday January 20, Trump will officially become US President. Event planners are expecting around 900000 people to attend Trump swearing-in.
The celebrations around Trump's inauguration will begin today around the theme 'Make America Great Again' which not only caught the imagination of the Americans during the grilling election campaign, but also propelled Trump to victory.
An unprecedented security has been put in place to thwart any untoward incident. Outgoing US President Barack Obama on Wednesday reviewed the preparedness. "We are going to see a just unbelievable tremendous outpouring of support for him," the incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.
"The president(-elect) has been just overwhelmed by the amount of support and outpouring of people that want to participate in some way with this 'historic inauguration," Spicer said in response to a question.
