Two very important events took place this past week.
Both Donald J. Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States and Saturday’s women march attracted thousands of people.
It is going to be nearly impossible to accurately say how many people actually attended the inauguration of Donald Trump as President.
It is also going to be extremely difficult to gauge how many people attended to the Women’s march Saturday.
Some reports are saying that the women’s march was also organized as a direct “rebuttal to Trump’s inauguration,” the previous day.
Trump talked about the sixe of the crowd during an appearance at the CIA Saturday.
He argued that the side of his crowd has been misrepresented.
CNN reports that Trump told the US intelligence agency that: "We had a massive field of people. You saw that. Packed. I get up this morning, I turn on one of the networks, and they show an empty field. I'm like, wait a minute. I made a speech. I looked out, the field was, it looked like a million, million and a half people. They showed a field where there were practically nobody standing there. And they said, Donald Trump did not draw well."
However, there are some differences that should be taken into consideration.
Trump’s speech was on the West Front of the Capitol, which was at capacity on Friday.
On the other hand, the Women’s march filled the streets around the mall, which were closed to Trump supporters.
Trump’s inauguration was on Jan. 20th because of the Constitution, which happened to be a Friday. The Women’s march was on a Saturday, when more people are off work.
