It seems President Donald Trump is still not over talking about the crowds at his inauguration. Tonight during his interview with David Muir on ABC, Trump talked about his plan to repeal Obamacare, immigration, terrorism and…yes, crowd size. Toward the end of the interview, he and Muir walked around and looked at some of the photos already on the walls of the White House.
The first two photos Trump showed were of his first dance with First Lady Melania Trump and of the swearing in. Then, he pointed to a different photo and said, “Here’s a picture of the event. Here’s a picture of the crowd. Now, the audience was the biggest ever, but this crowd was massive. Look how far back it goes. This crowd was massive. And I would actually take that camera and take your time if you want to know the truth.”
Trump and Muir then discussed the “warmth” between the new and former President, Barack Obama, and the fact that Ivanka Trump may at some point get an office in the White House. At the conclusion of the interview, Muir said “Just before we leave, the President wants to show us just one more image.”
The President pointed Muir to a different photo of the Inauguration ceremony. He pointed to the crowds and said, “One thing this shows is how far over they go here. Look, look how far this is… Nobody sees that. You don’t see that in the pictures. But when you look at this tremendous sea of love…it’s really something special that all these people traveled here from all parts of the country, maybe the world…they loved what I had to say, but more importantly, they’re gonna love the result.”
