Metro.us claims:

Tuesday afternoon, Trump tweeted a photo of a framed image of the crowds at his inauguration, adding that he plans to hang the picture in the White House press hall.

Trump's picture

The date printed on the picture seems incorrect, however is it a genuine photo of the crowds at his inauguration?

    @bobthefunny i've refocused the question on the notable (newspaper) claim and not on what Trump meant with that tweet; secondly I've removed the false dilemma from the post: either the photo is genuine or it isn't.

1 Answer 1


We can compare the photo with other photos of the inauguration such as CNN's gigapixel or this photo. We then can note several similarities between the photos, such as the position of crowds and bleachers, the large lights, the flags, ect. Given the similarities between the photos, I think it does appear to be a photo taken during the inauguration with an incorrect date on it.
