President-elect Donald J. Trump’s inauguration is expected to draw thousands of protesters to Washington on Jan. 20. Several groups are planning rallies around the National Mall and near the parade route.

Supporters of Mr. Trump are planning their own rallies in addition to the official inauguration events. Two motorcycle groups, Let America Hear Us, Roar For Trump! and Bikers for Trump, have secured permits from the National Park Service and are coordinating rides to Washington from around the country. 

The Women’s March on Washington, scheduled for Jan. 21, could be the largest inauguration-related demonstration in history even if it falls short of attracting the estimated 200,000 people who are expected to attend.
