Trump involved in ‘every detail’ of inaugural festivities… even down to the table settings

In what may be a tip of the hand on how he will govern as president, Donald Trump is reportedly involved in the minutest of details in this week’s inaugural festivities.

…little things like place settings and tablecloth fabrics, the New York Post reported.

Despite the notion that Trump may delegate an unprecedented level of power to Vice President-elect Mike Pence, his involvement in the presidential ceremonies suggests otherwise.

“He’s into every detail of everything,” Presidential Inaugural Committee Chair Tom Barrack told The Post. “I beg him all the time to go back to running the free world and let me focus on setting the tables.”

The inauguration is on Friday, but festivities begin much earlier with the Chairman’s Dinner on Tuesday, which includes diplomats, dignitaries and supporters, according to the newspaper.

The Vice President’s Dinner and the Cabinet Dinner take place Wednesday evening and Thursday will feature a concert on the National Mall and later that night, Trump and Pence will attend a candlelight dinner at Union Station.

As for Inauguration Day, The Post shared details of what will be a very busy day:

On Friday, Inauguration Day, the future president and first lady will attend services at St. John’s Episcopal Church before proceeding to the White House for coffee with President and Michelle Obama.

From there, they will all go to the Capitol, Barrack said.

After the swearing-in and parade — and the Obamas flying off to Andrews Air Force Base — Trump returns to the Capitol for a congressional lunch.

That evening, there are three official inaugural galas — the Liberty and Freedom balls at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and the Salute to
Our Armed Services ball, which Barrack said will include first responders. The Freedom ball is expected to have 25,000 attendees, and the Liberty ball 8,000.
