NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (KABC) --While a number of California Congress members announced they were boycotting the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, there will be several Orange County business owners who will proudly attend the ceremony on Friday.
About 20 people with the New Majority, a Republican group out of Newport Beach, will make the trip to Washington as Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
"I'm really excited to go to the inauguration," shopping center developer Steven Craig said.

Craig said Americans need to embrace Trump to help support a peaceful transition of power.

"Whatever side you are on, if you're a pro-supporter of Trump or someone who was supporting Hillary Clinton, the new government should be given the chance to do what they can do to maybe turn some things around in this country," Craig said. "I'm really hopefully that Mr. Trump can do some things and I hope everyone will give him a chance to at least try it."
