At 3:53 p.m., Jon Karl of ABC News reported: “Not a huge crowd yet along the parade route. Remember, to get here you had to go through security, you had to go through quite a bit of security, but we do see so far a lot of Trump supporters who enthusiastic out there.”

President Trump gets out of the car a little after 4:15 p.m. ET with Barron and Melania near the FBI building. They walk for about a couple minutes and then head back inside the car.


CNN asks: “Will they get out again? I wonder because now they’re getting closer down to where you guys are at the reviewing stand where they get to sit and then watch the rest of the parade and where everyone else gets to be nervous as they march on by them.”

There are many protesters along the parade route.

And now it gets a bit ugly not far from Pennsylvania Avenue. This is from approximately 4:25 p.m. ET:


Back to the celebratory part. The new Vice President Mike Pence and his wife approach The White House at 4:45 p.m. ET:

NBC News Peter Alexander reports that the attendance for the parade in front of the White House is less than stellar.

Neither President Trump nor Vice President Pence showed Al Roker any love! Roker is known for interviewing presidents or vice presidents as travel down the inauguration parade route. No luck this time.
