President-elect Donald Trump is going to channel his soft side during the inauguration Jan. 20.
That’s according to Tom Barrack, head of Trump’s inaugural committee. He told reporters at Trump Tower Tuesday that they’ll surround Trump with “the soft sensuality of the place,” according to Politico.
“It’s a much more poetic cadence than having a circus-like celebration that’s a coronation,” Barrack said. “It will be beautiful. The cadence of it is going to be, ‘Let me get back to work.’”
A reporter asked Barrack if they were worried about the lack of star power at the event. He said they weren’t trying to “surround him [Trump] with what people consider A-listers.”
“Mostly he’s abiding by tradition, especially in the swearing in ceremony. In the moment, when you look up that west Capitol entrance and that shift of power in a moment goes from a very strong powerful man of one party to another very strong powerful man of another, that cadence and tradition of America allowing the power to change like that?” Barrack continued. “It’s sacred. So he’s kept that pretty much the way it is.”
“We’re fortunate in that we have the greatest celebrity in the world, which is the President-elect,” he said, according to ABC News.
