With Donald Trump’s inauguration just days away, preparations are underway in D.C. including those of the Secret Service.
They have been preparing for this inauguration for months, and are working hard to be certain that Trump is safe, as well as the well-wishers who will attend. Besides, this isn’t their first assignment, and they should feel confident that they can get everyone safely through another inauguration.
But not so fast – Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy is worried because this inauguration is different than those before Donald Trump. He’s even losing sleep over it, saying he wakes up in the middle of the night wondering if they’ve missed something.
There over 100 radical groups targeting Donald Trump, and they are a scary bunch at that. Plans have been exposed to shut down metro, blocking routes in and out of the city, and even plotting to kill Trump.
He explained: “I think people today are willing to do things they may not have been willing to do in the past” and his worry comes from issues that arose during the campaign stating, ““people jumped over those bike racks or security zones into our buffer. In the past, it was very rare for somebody to do that. Today, in this past campaign, people were willing to do it.”, quoted from an article on Right Wing News.
He’s also concerned about terrorist attempts like the lone wolf attack on Bastille Day celebration in Nice, France, when a truck plowed through a crowd killing 85 people.
Even with his fears, he feels they are ready, but we have to wonder how they can be completely ready for so many threats and an unprecedented number of terror groups, radical hate groups, and especially the lone wolf who may be lurking out there; they will be outnumbered for sure. After getting through Inauguration Day they will still have their hands full for the next four years protecting President Trump. Our Secret Service has a great track record in protecting former Commander-in-Chief’s, and we need to pray for their safety, the safety of the Trump family, and all of the spectators that will attend.
