6:00 pm
i'm eric thomas. and i'm dan ashley, live in washington, d.c. a lot is happening right here in this city on president trump's first day. let me catch you up on some of the latest headlines here in washington. in just the past couple of hours we got our first look at donald trump inside the oval office. he signed his first executive order as president. an order for federal agencies to ease the burden of president obama's sweeping health care law. we're working to get more details on what that order actually means. it comes after congress voted for a full repeal act. stay tuned for that. president trump's two cabinet nominees were sworn in, james mattis, and general kelly as homeland security secretary. earlier today, the senate confirmed both nominations earlier in this day.
6:01 pm
a busy, busy day in washington. the parade is now over, there are three inaugural balls happening in washington, d.c. you are looking live at one of them. two are open to the public and will be attended by thousands of people. the other is by invitation only. the president and vice president and their wives will attend all three events making appearances at all of them. it has been a day filled with celebration after taking the oath and giving his inaugural speech. president trump joined lawmakers from both sides of the aisle for the traditional inaugural lunch. house minority speaker nancy pelosi congratulated and spoke to the president. >> these are words and actions that will face the judgment of history and are part of a long heritage of our democracy. >> reporter: now, it has been a day of celebration but as you have seen here in washington and around the country also a day of
6:02 pm
protest. but a lot of people came from the bay area to be a part of this inauguration. and we had a chance to spend some time with them today. what did you think of the president's speech? >> i thought it was good. i think he is talking to all market now and is the leader for all of america. >> was it moving to you in some ways? >> yes, very much, a very patriotic thing to listen to the president and see the inauguration and the people, the people were great, the crowd was amazing. >> reporter: why are you here 3,000 miles from home today? >> i'm here to honor our new president. >> what did you think of the speech, the inauguration? >> i thought it was fantastic, we're going to make america great again. >> reporter: everyone here very relieved that the rain held off the inauguration. i have been talking to people who came from all parts of the country including a lot of people from the bay area. some diehard trump supporters, some not so much. but everybody i spoke to was
6:03 pm
very glad they came. what was your impression as a democrat being here on the public inauguration? >> i think ultimately he is our president. right? i mean, that is the whole purpose of democracy, you vote in an election, no one ever said you're going to get your choice. but the majority decides. and we have him for four years and we have to abide by that decision. >> a lot of people in our area don't support donald trump for president. what would you say to them on this inauguration? >> i would say give him a chance, he is a very smart person, okay, he didn't get to where he is by being dumb. i think a lot of people fear some of the rhetoric he says but a lot of it is taken out of context. i think he will bring a lot of common sense values to the white house and will just do a good job. >> reporter: a lot of people do fear the rhetoric they have heard from donald trump which is why so many people came to washington to protest this inauguration, at least 200 arrests here and protests
6:04 pm
happening around the country and certainly many back in the bay area as well, some turning violent at times. but all in all, the day went very smoothly, $100 million in security buys you security so everybody here was kept safe. in the meantime, as soon as the inauguration was over, things changed dramatically for two men, donald trump and barack obama, now private citizens, obama and michelle obama's plane landed a short time ago today in southern california. at riverside's march air reserve base they were supposed to land at palm springs airport about an hour ago but they could not because of a storm moving through. this landing in riverside was a bit of a challenge because the base lost power in the storm. the obamas plan to spend a week on vacation in california, and then move back to washington, d.c. to live in the covet kalorama neighborhood where they bought a house. unusual for a former president to live in washington after leaving office.
6:05 pm
they will stay there while their oldest daughter, malia, finishes high school. so again, a very full day in washington, turning into a very full and busy night as those who came here to celebrate the inauguration of president trump are attending three major balls going on in the city. i'll be back a little later in the hour but a lot more to share with you. we talked to democrats and republicans and how they feel about this change in washington. much more to come, but for now we'll send it back to you in san francisco. >> all right, dan, thank you. we'll see you again. and here in the bay area the inauguration has sparked numerous demonstrations. >> in san francisco, there were several protests going on at the same time. abc 7 news reporter melanie woodrow followed streets that were blocked. >> reporter: the crowd gathered at the u.n. plaza is now on the move. take a look, you can see hundreds of people marching here
6:06 pm
on market street making their way to the castro. and you can see they have signs and flags. they're playing music and chanting. earlier today we have video to show you from when this crowd gathered at u.n. plaza at about 5:00 this evening. this was after the sky opened up and there was quite a bit of rain. but that didn't stop these people coming out again with their signs. they were organized, speaking and sharing their viewpoints. we talked to a couple of people about why they decided to show up tonight. >> i am here tonight because i refuse to accept the indignity that comes with a president that represents me as a woman and yet saying such disrespectful things. i also came here tonight because my dad is an immigrant, i also came here because my dad is an immigrant and i think disrespectful statements are unacceptable. >> anger and frustration.
6:07 pm
i think the fact there has been foreign interference in our election is really troubling and i'm afraid it will be swept under the rug now that he has taken office and that is a threat to our democracy. >> reporter: there were orders to disperse at 16th and 7th street, linking themselves together at the caltrans tracks. local officers had to lift the people off the tracks, while the caltrans workers cut the chains around them after the protesters would not move. back now you can see the protesters gathered at the plaza, they are behind me headed to the market street on the castro. this is one of several peaceful protests that we've seen today in san francisco. i can tell you there are several law enforcement officers around this evening but they have not had to step in. they say so far this has been a peaceful protest.
6:08 pm
live in san francisco, melanie woodruff, abc 7 news. thank you, melanie, and the wet weather didn't stop a group of protesters in oakland marching, they protested at 14th and clay street. one protester told abc 7 news she was disappointed that the crowd was not bigger. >> protesters gathered outside the immigration office in san francisco. tensions rose a built, but officers moved in and the protesters ended peacefully. and causing headaches at the port of oakland today, it began shortly after the workers didn't report for work, and it caused one shipping terminal to close. truckers were backed up for hours. >> what hurt us is one of the terminals closed down. we got a lot of loads that we could not get done today. >> long shore workers were vocal
6:09 pm
opponents of president trump, the port will resume operations later on today. and police are watching to make sure other events are not out of hand, live from franco gawa plaza. >> reporter: the rally is on the move, we're trying to keep up with them after they moved from frank ogawa plaza. the police saw them turn down 58th. there is a large opd presence out here. the rain has made a difference in the size of the crowd, but there still appears to be a lot of people out here marching. let me show you the video from earlier today. >> we do this for the power for the people, man. >> reporter: around a thousand people protested in inauguration of donald trump, shut down broadway and oakland, marchers then rallied at frank ogawa
6:10 pm
plaza, where many expressed themselves at the mike event. we heard from women on minority rights and the environment. meanwhile, other groups such as socialists alternative and "black lives matter" set up booths to help spread their messages. >> i am also a science teacher, so to put somebody in charge of the epa who has opposed the epa, opposed regulation. i am really afraid. >> mass movements are going to be necessary to stop trump's attacks, mobilizing people in the streets to protest, get organized in the work place, eventually have strikeouts, school walkouts, things like that. >> reporter: as i said there are a lot of oakland police officers at the ready. opd says their staffing levels are full tonight. the demonstrations have been peaceful that we witnessed out here today. back live, we'll catch up with
6:11 pm

6:31 pm
washington, d.c. protesters clashed with police on the streets near the inauguration parade group. officers lobbed tear gas and made about 200 arrests, widespread vandalism. and president trump paid tribute to his former opponent, hillary clinton. and he asked dignitaries to give secretary clinton and her husband, former president bill clinton, a standing ovation. >> and honestly, there is nothing more i can say, i have a lot of respect for those two people. so thank you all for being here. >> the clintons attended the event along with former president bush, and president h.b. bush was too sick to attend, recovering in texas. and the delegation is making
6:32 pm
up for mostly democrats. >> this is a wake-up call because the efforts that will be made in the first year of the trump presidency are going to be diabolical. >> there was no question how bay area congressional leaders feel about working with president trump. >> this is a guy who is completely and fundamentally unfit for office. who is a demagogue, a bigot, who will try to divide our country and take is backward in lots of ways. >> they have been flooded with calls from people. >> i don't go to the grocery store that i'm not stopped by constituents, anxious, concerned and depressed. >> we don't always have answers, i can just tell them we're not helpless and anything that is going to be done by president-elect trump won't be met with us just lying on our backs and taking it. we're going to give him a fight. >> democrats say larger crowds
6:33 pm
are showing up at bay area community meetings, many people asking how they can help. >> this election has woken up the sentiments of people in the bay area and they realize how important citizenship is. >> we have to be a resistance movement to the donald trump era. he has proposed to really reshape the country as we know it. >> democrats say they're committed to fighting the president and republican-led congress on border and immigration restrictions, they are also planning to hang tough on any repeal of the affordable care act, or environmental regulations put in place during the obama presidency. many congressional leaders believe people in the bay area will lead the charge. >> i actually believe there will be more grass roots mobilization in the bay area and our community than we've ever seen before. well, president trump is already off to a fast start taking action on the affordable care act. so-called obamacare. signing an executive order to
6:34 pm
ease the burden on the obamacare policies. and we'll have to see what that entails. that is something of a shot across the bow for the democrats who vowed to fight so much on what trump talked about on the campaign trail. the country is far from united. and president trump has announced he will try to unite the party, but he has a long way to go. nevertheless, another day of pomp, and celebration, back to you. >> yeah, guys, what was the turnout at the inauguration? >> yeah, donald trump before he was sworn into office talked about massive crowds that would attend. it was very well attended. but not as many as anticipated. we did see a lot of empty seats, especially further back and even the vip section on the parade group was not filled at times. however were there were a lot of people here, at least probably 250,000 people. and there were not the big
6:35 pm
crowds expected, but it was not because of the rain, it was not bad. but many were shouting and jeering, but there were no problems during the ceremony itself. >> all right, dan, thank you very much. still to come, the bay area woman who was unfairly ticketed over and over again. and a real problem until her car was taken away. that is

6:39 pm
anywhere in the world. this was a movement. and now, the work begins. now the work begins. there is no games, right? no games. right. we're not playing games. >> president trump with melania right there at the liberty ball, where they're supposed to have their first dance after the inauguration today. a bay area woman almost had her car taken away by authorities over a parking ticket. >> we hear the parking ticket didn't even belong to the woman. >> that is true, pretty amazing story. everything she did to convince the citation company didn't work, so she contacted 7 on your side. >> susan cole loves her mini cooper, even customized it to show off her british pride. the vanity plate was custom made. the plate came off her car which
6:40 pm
was also a mini cooper, she sold it in june. susan received this notice over a car she already sold. >> i sold it june 23rd, i got two citations sometime the end of july. >> she had this release of liability which clearly showed the car had already been sold when the ticket was received. >> the citation company did not seem to accept it because they sent me another citation with information about having problems with renewing my license and possibly impounding the car. >> and all she said, she received four notices of deliquency. >> they just kept sending me notifications. >> we reached out to the dmv, who contacted the department of public safety and the citation
6:41 pm
was cleared. we contacted the citation processing center in newport beach but they did not get back to us. we also asked stanford whether it had any checking and balances on the processing center and how the center is paid. the university declined to answer, susan says no matter what happened she was not going to give up the fight. >> and this is not my citation, i did not park there. >> if we ever hear back from the ticket processing center i will update this story. remarkable you can't fix that. >> the processing people -- >> all right. thank you. well, up next, all smiles, no protests. the bay area supporters who were not shy about supporting the inauguration. and trump has his first dance, let's take a live look at the

6:45 pm
shows us both sides. >> reporter: this is a celebration that started early and may go well into the night. supporters of donald trump had taken over the restaurant and wine bar in downtown campbell. they were trained on the tv to catch the events in washington. this man who identifies as a conservative and is an alternate on the conservative committee, says it's easier to be a supporter. >> i think it will be a lot easier, and i think he will gain support based on what i think he will do, and his background, he is a brilliant guy. >> however, more than 500 protesters marched in downtown san jose, concerned that the new administration won't embrace their concerns over immigration policies, lgbtq rights and other issues. >> i hope that the new president will hear the people. he is our new president. so we have to demand he fights
6:46 pm
injustice and doesn't take away our civil rights. >> reporter: the march began at caesar chavez park in san jose city hall, passing showers didn't slow their cause, a participant who declined to share her last name acknowledged their grievances may not get the attention in washington. >> i know we're listening to each other, but we're not the ones we need to convince. >> so how will you convince him? >> i don't know if we can convince him. all we can do is resist. >> in san jose, david louie, san jose. and a tree has come down on highway 17 near redwood estates. you see it right there. it hit a car, no one was hurt. the southbound lanes were shut down south of los gatos, one northbound lane was closed. we'll update you on the abc 7 news app. >> all right, let's talk to sandh sandhya. >> all right, not everybody is

6:51 pm
gentleman, kevin durant. 1,099 of the points with the warriors in houston. and first quarter, look at kd put montrezl harrell in the torture chamber, kd with 22 as we speak, second quarter, draymond green, and dubs will build, james harden bringing the rockets back. euro-stepping and finishing in the lane, 15 points, 17 assists at the half for harden. steve kerr said he is like a linebacker going into this. and warriors lead at ten at that point. sam dekker proving to be a problem making life miserable for the dubs, 12 off the bench cut the lead to two. steph doing steph-like things, splash, 21 points, warriors opened up 91-73 in the third
6:52 pm
quarter. a lot of people around the league concerned that russell westbrook got snubbed. curry, westbrook and harden having a great year, one of them had to lose out. westbrook said the all-star game was not his priority. >> just the business of the game. i don't play for all-star. all-star this, i play to win championships, and every night i compete at a high level and you know, it will work out. >> well, believe it or not it's less than a month until pitchers and catchers report. today, the a's made it official announcing the signing of former giants closer santiago a $2 million, 11 year deal. the 36-year-old casilla made his
