ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Army officials, congressional staffers and Trump team members went through a dress rehearsal for U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on Sunday (January 15) at the U.S. Capitol, ahead of the official inauguration which will be held on Friday, January 20th. Trump will serve as the 45th president of the United States. During the rehearsal, Army Sergeant Major Greg Lowery played the part of Trump while Army Spc. Sara Corry played the part of Melania Trump. Estimates vary for the number of people expected to attend the inauguration. The D.C. Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is reportedly planning for 800,000 to 900,000 people to attend the swearing-in ceremony and inaugural parade. President Barack Obama drew an estimated 1.8 million people to the National Mall eight years ago, Trump, a New York real estate developer, won with a populist platform that included promises to build a wall along the Mexican border and restrict immigration from Muslim countries. He also promised to crack down on companies moving jobs out of the United States. Trump's disparaging comments about immigrants and women and stance against President Barack Obama's healthcare law have drawn the anger of many on the left, who plan a series of protests.
