WASHINGTON, D.C. (Capital District)-President Elect Donald J. Trump’s (R-NY), Cabinet is coming along with a slow and steady pace.  More congressional hearings to approve the candidates will take place this week before Friday, January 20th, 2017, Inauguration Day, where Trump and his Cabinet will be sworn in to protect the United States.   In recent days, many scheduled performers have withdrawn from playing at Trump’s inauguration due to their’ political views.  Performers that will play included the Talladega Marching Tornadoes, from the University of Alabama Talladega, The New York Rockettes, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir from Salt Lake City, UT, Jackie Evancho (single performer), and on Thursday, January 19th, 2017, Country Star Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down, and Lee Greenwood.  Also in the news, Georgia Representative and civil rights activist John Lewis (D-GA), commented on Trump’s presidency calling it, “illegitimate,” while Trump fired back on Twitter telling him to “Clean up his [Atlanta] district.”  The current picks for the Trump Cabinet are: (Congressionally Approved, Green, Hearing Scheduled, Red)
