President Donald Trump is already celebrating his rally speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, but crowd size had one giant hole that differentiated it from the massive size on Capitol Hill: the reflecting pool.
Trump managed to fill up the sides of the memorial as the rest of Washington, DC gathered at different places on the mall.
At the U.S. Capitol, residents spilled out over the steps, around the pillars, out onto the capitol lawn and beyond. As Trump's crowd struggled to figure out when to clap, Capitol crowds held their phones up to guide a light for soldiers overseas on the American holiday.
As Trump's festivities closed out his crowd spilled onto the National Mall to add to those already seated to hear the Capitol concert.
You can compare the sizes of the crowds below:
