a moment. first i want to give you a lay of the land a bit down here. we're just outside of the perimeter. mi military vehicles here. this is a checkpoint. no vehicle past this point unless it is the an authorized vehicle. that's what's going on down here. you can see guardsmen brought in yesterday. just down there is the capitol building tochlt the right of that building is the mall where everything is going to take place. hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend today. including brian mcdownload. he's from north wildwood. he was on season three of the apprentice. fired by mr. trump in 2005. didn't stop him from volunteering for the trump campaign. in just a matter of hours, trump will be sworn in as president, but not with the support of everyone here on capitol hill. there are some representatives from philadelphia, democrats who is are skipping the
inauguration. i asked mcdowell about the line that has been drawn here. do you think there's a division on capitol hill and how does he address that if there is one in your opinion. >> in my opinion, i don't think there's a division. a few weeks ago congress was growing to vote on something, and, i believe, trump contacted the people that needed to be contacted and said this is not in the best interest of our policy for the american people. congress backed down. and this is somebody who is not even sworn in yet. they didn't back down because they like donald trump. so in the end, i think that you don't have to like donald trump, but you have to support your president. and that is what matters. >> we saw plenty of support for the president elect in the mall yesterday. when i come back, put politics aside. introduce the philadelphia troops walking in the inaugural parade.
have that story when i see you back here at 5:00. >> all right. pamela, thanks. >> this is my first inauguration. you've covered these before. security always an issue. >> donald trump's enology ration is no exception. the planning for the security began months ago. most streets in the area are blocked off and everyone close to the festivities will have to pass through a security checkpoi checkpoint. security teams were tested last night. set off smoke detectives at the national press club. police used protective gear after the crowd through trash at trump supporters. there were no injuries or arrests. meantime protests are expected on the streets of philadelphia today. >> nbc 10 katy zachry live this morning. police telling people to stay clear of the city?
