The U.S. Capitol looms over a stage during a rehearsal of President-elect Donald Trump's swearing-in ceremony, Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017, in Washington.

The NPR Politics team and reporters across the newsroom will be live-annotating President Donald Trump's inaugural address, expected to begin at noon ET on Friday.

The Inauguration Day ceremonies are expected to draw 700,000 to 900,000 spectators, according to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who added that some 99 groups are expected to rally in favor of or against the new president.

When Trump takes the oath of office on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, many Democrats in Congress will not be there. More than 50 House members now say they will skip the inauguration in a break with tradition.

The NPR team will fact-check and provide background to the inauguration of the 45th president of the United States.
