President-elect Donald Trump’s Presidential Inaugural Committee just announced a list of groups that will take part in the inaugural parade.
And it is shockingly different from Obama’s.
Sara Armstrong, the committee’s CEO, said in a statement.
“People from every corner of the country have expressed great interest in President-elect Trump’s inauguration and look forward to continuing a salute to our republic that spans more than two centuries,”
“As participants follow in the footsteps of our new president and vice president down Pennsylvania Avenue, they will be adding their names to the long list of Americans who have honored our country by marching in the inaugural parade.”
“There will be more than 8,000 parade participants representing forty organizations including high school and university marching bands, equestrian corps, first responders, and veteran’s groups.”
Each branch of the United States military will be represented. Below is a short list of parade participants, you can see the full list here. Do you notice the huge difference between this and Obama’s parades?
