Washington: President-elect Donald Trump and his family are making an appearance at the "Make America Great Again Welcome Concert" on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Thousands of people have gathered on the mall in Washington for the event, many donning Trump's signature red "Make America Great Again" campaign hats. Trump is expected to deliver remarks at the event.

 

Also expected to make appearances are country singer Toby Keith, actor Jon Voight and the band 3 Doors Down, among others.

President-elect Donald Trump is laying a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery as he continues his countdown to inauguration. Trump was joined in the ceremony by Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

The pair silently placed a wreath in front of the Tomb of the Unknowns - a monument dedicated to service members whose remains were never identified.
After placing the wreath, the two men put their hands on their hearts as solemn music played.

 

Trump's family, including his wife, Melania, and adult children and grandchildren were also present. Fields of white gravestones rolled into the distance under the warm winter sun.
