"This week, we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous," Trump will say, according to excerpts released by the White House.
He's also expected to denounce the outbreak of violence at the Capitol earlier this month, which has been used to justify a massive pre-inauguration quasi-lockdown in Washington DC.
“All Americans were horrified by the assault on our Capitol,” he will say, according to the excerpts. “Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans. It can never be tolerated.”
