President-elect Donald Trump wants to see “the people” at his inauguration. He does not want “celebrities” at the presidential inauguration. (Aren’t celebrities people?)
On Twitter, the president-elect said that he wants “the people” to attend the event. He isn’t inviting celebrities at his inauguration.
“The so-called “A” list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!” he tweeted.
Trump appears to making a defense against reports suggesting that the president-elect wanted to invite celebrities to the presidential inauguration next year but failed to book famous artists.
According to reports, many Hollywood stars, including Elton John and David Foster, have declined to perform at the event on January 20.
Trump added that “so-called A-list celebrities” want tickets to his inauguration. “Look what [celebrities] did for Hillary, nothing,” he tweeted.
Response From Hollywood
Hollywood stars, who according to Trump are celebrities not people, remain quiet on social media.
However, Chrissy Teigen showed up on Twitter to address the president-elect.
“Hi – we are people too. You are our president too. I don’t want you to be, but u are,” she said. “Also we all know you are dying without the approval, dear.”
Alec Baldwin also tweeted. “I wanna perform at Trump’s inauguration.” And “I wanna sing ‘Highway to Hell.’”
What we know so far is 16-year-old America’s Got Talent star Jackie Evancho is going to perform at the Trump’s inauguration. We also expect the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Radio City Rockettes to perform at the event.
