No, it's not a dream. Donald Trump’s inauguration will definitely be taking place on Friday 20 January.

But it’s not clear if it’s going to be particularly popular.

Of course, Trump seems to think it will be.

He tweeted:

People are pouring into Washington in record numbers. Bikers for Trump are on their way. It will be a great Thursday, Friday and Saturday!

But Daniel Dale, Washington correspondent for the Toronto Star, seems to think otherwise.

He tweeted:

Washington is pretty quiet. Local police are planning for half as many people as for Obama's first.

As the Washington Post's Mark Berman pointed out:
