As Donald Trump readies to lead US, protestors clash with police

Washington: As President-elect Donald Trump stepped into Washington on Thursday for a round of rituals and celebrations in preparation for his swearing-in with a call to unify the country, clashes broke out between his opponents and police — reflecting the mood of the polarised nation.

Several hundred anti-Trump protesters set off fires on the street near a celebration by his supporters at the National Press Club Building and police in riot gear retaliated with pepper spray. Police said that there were no serious injuries or arrests at the incident.

The protesters also pelted eggs at those going to the celebration, which was billed as the “Deploraball” making a joke of the defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton description of Trump supporters as “deplorables”.

Trump was not at that celebration, but at a black-tie dinner at the Union Station for his staff and campaign donors. “They are going absolutely crazy,” he said there about his opposition.

“We are going to unify the nation,” he said earlier at another celebration, a concert at the Lincoln Memorial. “We are going to make America great again for all its people.”

Indian American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, a leftist Democrat, has said that she will join the boycott, but the other four in Congress said they will be at the ceremony. Hillary Clinton is also expected to be there.

Last week, several anti-Trump protests were held in New York and several cities across the nation.

Chief Justice John Roberts will swear-in Trump, who will place his hands on a Bible he used as a child and another that belonged to President Abraham Lincoln.

As the newly minted President he is to walk from there with his family to the White House and occupy the symbol of the presidency.

The Obamas, meanhile, are preparing to leave the mansion for a private residence where they will stay till the younger daughter, Sasha, completes the school year.

Most of their private belongings have already shipped out and while the swearing-in takes place, movers will frenetically work move the last of them and bring in the Trump’s things.
