Protesters and supporters gear up for 58th Presidential Inauguration
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
The stage is set for the 58th Presidential Inauguration on January 20th. Hundreds of thousands are scheduled to line up on both sides of the aisle.
"I'm looking forward to supporting Donald J. Trump. Making America Great Again and support him being sworn into office." said Donald Trump's supporter Charles Hale.
"We would like the headline the next day to be Donald Trump inaugurated amid complete chaos, not Donald Trump, inaugurated amid applause," said " Legba Carrefour, who is an organizer with #DisruptJ20.
'Bikers for Trump' and #DisruptJ20 are two very different groups. Organizers with 'Bikers for Trump' will rev their engines in a show of support. Hale will travel from Baltimore to join the group at John Marshall Park on Friday.
"I think it's important to show that he has not been fairly potrayed in the media and there are people that support him," said Hale.
Meanwhile, #DisruptJ20 plans on protesting president-elect Trump in several locations.
"Early in the morning starting at about 7, we have a series of blockades that are going into effect around all the chekpoints to get into the actual inauguration," said Carrefour.
'Bikers for Trump' obtained a permit for their rally, while #DisruptJ20 has only secured permits for some of their events.
"At 10 a.m. There is an unpermitted march leaving at Logan circle," said Carrefour. "We see ourselves actively challenging the notion of the peaceful transition of power."
"We're not going there looking to start trouble," said Hale.
