Trump will keep some traditions, break others at inauguration
At NYPOST by Marla Schultz --
Donald Trump will be adhering to some inauguration traditions, while breaking others as he becomes the nation’s 45th president on Friday.
He plans to lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery, stay overnight at the historic Blair House, and have tea with the Obamas before the ceremony.
But Trump will have fewer inaugural balls, a new announcer and a shorter inaugural parade.
The festivities begin in earnest when Trump awakes on Friday at the presidential guest home near the White House.
He is expected to keep with tradition and attend a private family church service at nearby St. John’s Episcopal Church.
