From 44 To 45: Previewing Donald Trump's Inauguration

Jan 18, 2017

The inauguration is days away. Whether you're excited or not, the transfer of power from Barack Obama to Donald Trump is an historic event.  And an expensive event, at a price tag of more than $200 million. The Department of Homeland Security says they expect 900,000, including many protestors. While past Presidents like Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and George W. Bush will be in attendance, more than fifty House Democrats say they will not attend

This hour, we preview the inauguration and take your calls. What's something you're hopeful about in the next four years?
