WASHINGTON, D.C. - Several Mainers made the trip to Washington, D.C. to see Friday's inauguration. That includes a 17-year-old from Saco.

Jack Cianchette has worked hard on the Trump campaign from the beginning, making phone calls and knocking on doors.


He was present for Trump's speech on Friday, and says it still hasn't sunk in that he is now the 45th president. Something that has sunk in are the protests. Cianchette says he sees a difference between the groups of protesters. 


"There are people that are protesting for, they are using their first amendment rights the right way. They are peacefully protesting. Signs, it's fine yelling. But then there are other people that they are throwing rocks at police and they are destroying things, and setting fires in places. So it's really weird. You'll look at one place and it's a high end society and you look two streets over and it's a whole different country," says Cianchette.


Cianchette was not hurt and planned to spend the evening at the Liberty Ball.
