Team Trump is worried that with only four days out from the event, there are still NUMEROUS tickets available for the inauguration. Donald himself took to Facebook to record a message begging offering free tickets to anyone who wanted to attend.
TRUMP HAS NOW REMOVED THE VIDEO
Many venues that are normally packed during inaugurations are open. From Politico:
But Quinn said many of her friends are skipping the parties — she is attending a birthday party instead — and many just want to leave town. Vivian Deuschl, a longtime D.C. hospitality consultant, said associations are having parties, “but you aren’t having these glitzy, glamorous parties with the coveted invitations because the excitement is just not there.”
“There are lot of venues in town that are normally full that are empty,” said Philip Dufour, a D.C. party planner. “A lot of groups gave up holds on venues after the elections.”
Lesley Abravanel, also known as the Savvy Gadfly, announced the following on her verified Twitter account: “Thank you Donald Trump for already creating jobs! My friend is being paid to be a seat filler at your Inauguration!” Although some interpreted her claim as merely being a joke, she confirmed in the replies that it was in fact real.

In addition, all of the ticket brokers selling tickets to inauguration swearing in ceremony and parade have NUMEROUS tickets available.
Why do you think Donald Trump could pack a rally, but not his inauguration?
