Donald Trump will have an inauguration like no other, and the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) just announced how different it will be than those of the past!
President-Elect Trump and Vice President-Elect Mike Pence are “roll up your sleeves and get to work” kind of guys. The pair of patriots want a respectful yet brief inaugural ceremony, so they can dig into the business of making America great again.
“The inauguration and inaugural is a representation of the president-elect and a representation of the vice president-elect,” Boris Epshteyn, the PIC communication director, told Breitbart during a tour of the committee’s inaugural planning office.
Sure, there will be excitement and fun during both the day and evening on January 20, but it will be vastly scaled back. Unlike Obama, who had ten balls to attend after being sworn in, Trump wants to head straight to the Oval Office, so he can start taking the action necessary to fulfill his campaign promises.
“What does that mean? It’s all about the people,” Epshteyn added. “It’s not about any one celebrity or any one entertainer or about any of those folks sipping champagne and cocktails somewhere in the Hamptons or in Beverly Hills. It’s about the American people.
Donald Trump is holding with the tradition of hosting the Commander-in-Chief Inaugural Ball. George W. Bush initiated the ball, which Obama also hosted.
However, Trump is expanding the scope of the event. In addition to inviting enlisted members of the United States Military to the ball, the 45th president of the United States is also sending invites to police officers, firefighters, EMTs, veterans, military families, and wounded warriors.
“We’re so proud of the amount of support and outreach we’ve received from all over the country. This inaugural will represent the people. That’s one, and two it’s about getting to work right away,” the PIC head continued.
Trump will only have three official inaugural balls. The people can celebrate having a patriot finally back in the White House, but the man himself will be burning the midnight oil on our behalf.
“Donald J. Trump is all about getting to work and making sure Americans are safe in their homes, safe in their jobs,” Epshteyn also noted. “Look at the news that just came out this week: 8,000 jobs being brought to America between Sprint and OneWeb.”
The outsider Republican president does not have a bevvy of deep-pocket donors and lobbyists to thank and schmooze with on inauguration day. The only ones he truly has to thank are We the People, and he will be doing just that by skipping all the elbow-rubbing with elites and getting down to business ASAP.
