Trump organizers said earlier this week they expected about 800,000 people to attend Friday’s festivities on the National Mall — “fewer than half the 1.8 million people who attended President Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009,” Politico says.
While the claims have been unsubstantiated at this time, rumor has it that some of today's attendees may have even been paid to be there.
