President-elect Donald Trump is not worried about the possibility of rain for his inauguration. In fact, he thinks it might be a good thing.
“It may rain, it may not rain. It doesn’t matter. I don’t care,” Trump said Thursday at a pre-inauguration dinner at Washington D.C.’s Union Station. “If it really pours, that’s OK because people will realize it’s my real hair and that’s OK. It might be a mess, but they’re going to see that it’s my real hair.”

Caitlyn Jenner, Jackie Evancho, business leaders including members of the Kraft family, and others were among those attending. House Speaker Paul Ryan with his wife Janna were also guests as were Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones, two of the women who accused former President Bill Clinton of rape.
Trump thanked his family and the donors in his speech, recalling the success of the campaign and the road to victory.
“That was incredible. More impressive, there was a map a couple of days after the election, and it showed the red counties and the blue counties. And the entire country, practically, other than the little points, was red,'” Trump said. “That was some big victory, some victory.”
