President-elect Donald Trump tweeted on Friday that he wants to set a record for the biggest crowd at an inauguration when he is sworn in as commander-in-chief next month.
Well, we all did it, together! I hope the "MOVEMENT" fans will go to D.C. on Jan 20th for the swearing in. Let's set the all time record!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 16, 2016
To do so, he would need a crowd of about 2 million people, which would break the record of 1.8 million set by Barack Obama's first inauguration in 2009. While Obama's crowds fell considerably in 2013, he still set a record for the highest-attended second inauguration ever.
