Massive security preparations under way for inauguration, amid protest threats to ‘paralyze’ DC
The stage is set for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration – not just the traditional swearing-in platform on Capitol Hill, but a massive security presence amid protest plans to “shut down” the nation’s capital.
Most crowd estimates for the Jan. 20 festivities are far short of the record-setting 1.8 million visitors for President Obama’s historic 2009 inauguration. But the throngs of spectators and protesters alike are enough to create transit, security and hospitality challenges.
“Security is my greatest concern,” Missouri GOP Sen. Roy Blunt, chairman of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, recently said. “No question that on inaugural day, this would be the most appealing target in the world.”
He suggested the city could have as many as 750,000 demonstrators alone.
More than three-dozen law enforcement agencies are working together on security and safety plans in anticipation, including the Capitol Police, FBI, Secret Service and National Guard.
Roughly 7,500 Guardsmen from across the country will come to Washington, along with about 3,000 police officers from various states, with the Secret Service taking the lead on security.
Despite heavy security, the man in charge of planning the day’s events is promising a quiet and dignified affair.
Trump’s top planner promises ‘soft sensuality’ at inauguration
Donald Trump’s inauguration will feature a “soft sensuality” rather than be a “circus-like celebration,” according to the chairman of the president elect’s planning committee.
“What we’ve done instead of trying to surround him with what people consider A-listers is we are going to surround him with the soft sensuality of the place,” Tom Barrack, who heads the president-elect’s inaugural committee, told reporters gathered in Trump Tower on Tuesday, according to a pool report.
“It’s a much more poetic cadence than having a circus-like celebration that’s a coronation,” he added. “That’s the way this president-elect wanted it. I think it will be contributive. It will be beautiful. The cadence of it is going to be, ‘Let me get back to work.’”
