A Women’s March on Washington protest is set for Jan. 21, the day after Trump’s Inauguration, according to their website.
President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team respects the right of people to protest at his Inauguration.
“We very much respect the First Amendment and we understand that people choose to protest. As long as they do so within all laws, rules, and regulations, they’re welcome to do so. And, you know, we’re here to hear their concerns. And we understand that people have concerns, but we welcome them to our side as well.We hope some of those will come to D.C., change their mind, instead of protesting, come celebrate with us,” told Boris Epshteyn, communications director for Trump’s Inaugural committee.
He denied rumors that the Inauguration was having trouble finding entertainers for the event.
“It’s not Woodstock, it’s not Summer Jam. It’s not about the celebrities. As Donald Trump, the president-elect himself, tweeted, it’s about the people, and that’s what we’re concentrated on.”
“The Rockettes represent the American people, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir represents the American people, the other folks who will be coming to this inauguration, who will be performing at this inauguration, represent the American people.”
More names for the event are to come, “we’re excited about the other ones we’ll be rolling out, but let me say one more time, it’s not about celebrities, it’s not about any one entertainer, it’s all about the American people.”
