Trump inauguration to be streamed live on Twitter/PBS

PBS NewsHour in partnership with Twitter will live stream special coverage of Inauguration Day 2017 on Twitter from 11am5pm ET on Friday, January 20, 2017. The special broadcast will be anchored by managing editor Judy Woodruff, with NewsHour correspondents John Yang reporting from the steps of the U.S. Capitol and Lisa Desjardins from the National Mall.

NewsHour’s livestream will include the swearing in of the 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump and the 48th Vice President of the United States Mike Pence on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, the Inaugural Address and Parade, and the arrival of President-elect Trump at the White House.

NewsHour’s broadcast coverage will live stream on Twitter globally at inauguration.twitter.com and @NewsHour and will be available to both Twitter’s logged-in and logged out audience.

“We are delighted to partner with Twitter for Inauguration Day coverage,” said Sara Just, NewsHour’s executive producer and WETA SVP.

“The peaceful transition of power from one president to the next is a powerful moment in the American democratic process. And this year, it comes at a time when the country is embroiled in political discourse like we have rarely seen. Streaming public broadcasting’s thoughtful coverage on Twitter will allow more Americans to experience the inauguration and join in discussion around it.”

    I disagree with those opposing Trump because I believe Trump is the fuse we need to shake up the Middle East … it’s an enormous price but I believe that complacency and “happy talk” have only made things worse … we are far worse today than we were 25 years ago in the Middle East … I don’t agree with everything that Trump does but I believe that he is the only one who can create the atmosphere that will force change … his policies may not all encourage good change but they will force good people who have been doing nothing for the past 25 years to reassess their failed actions and force us to do something else ,.. Trump is the fuse that will change the Middle East … Clinton represented a continued IV of hallucinatory drugs that kept us in a coma and allowed us to accept the worsening of situations in the Middle East … the “happy talk” of Clinton and Obama basically is like Al Gore’s boiling water and the Frog … we have just come to accept the worsening situation as an unacceptable and acceptable reality … http://www.arabnews.com/node/1041456/columns
