President-elect Donald Trump arrived in Washington, D.C., Thursday on a military jet ahead of today’s inauguration. A new CBS poll shows less than a third of all Americans approve of the incoming president, with Trump’s favorability rating at only 32 percent. President Obama, in comparison, had an 84 percent approval rating just before his inauguration in 2009. On Thursday night, Donald Trump spoke in front of the Lincoln Memorial at the “Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration” in front of about 10,000 supporters. That’s about 40 times fewer people than the number who attended the 2009 inaugural concert when President Obama was taking office. In the lead-up to his inauguration, Trump ran into significant trouble booking talent. Last night’s concert headliners included 3 Doors Down, Toby Keith, Lee Greenwood and The Piano Guys. This is Trump.
President-elect Donald Trump: “We knew that something special was happening. And I can only tell you this: The polls started going up, up, up, but they didn’t want to give us credit, because they forgot about a lot of us. On the campaign, I called it the forgotten man and the forgotten woman. Well, you’re not forgotten anymore.”
