Social media was having a field day because of the lack of people attend Donald’s inauguration.
ABC reports, The National Park Service won’t be announcing attendance numbers for President Donald Trump’s inaugural ceremony, but photos of this year’s event indicate that it may have been less well attended than Obama’s in 2009.
There were 1.8 million people who attended Obama’s inauguration in 2009 and close to 1 million who attended his second in 2013, according to D.C. officials.
Before today’s festivities, federal and District of Columbia officials estimated 700,000 to 900,000 people would attend Trump’s inauguration.
In similar news, Donald Trump directed government agencies on Friday to freeze regulations and take steps to weaken Obamacare, using his first hours in the White House to make good on a campaign promise to start dismantling his predecessor’s healthcare law.
Heading into the Oval Office shortly after the conclusion of his inaugural parade, Trump signed an order on the Affordable Care Act that urged government departments to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation” of provisions that imposed fiscal burdens on states, companies or individuals.
