The Metro in Washington, D.C., created a special commemorative “SmartTrip” card featuring the likeness of President Barack Obama for Inauguration Day in 2013, but will not go the extra mile for President-elect Donald Trump.
…and they’re saying it’s Trump’s fault.
DC Metro’s one-day inauguration passes for January 20, 2017, which costs $10 and is good for unlimited use for the day, will not include an image of Trump and authorities say it’s because the Trump campaign did not provide a requested photo.
@libertybell1776 We reached out to the Trump transition team for an approved photo. We did not receive a response.

Not only will Trump’s picture not be featured on the one-day pass, his name will not be found either.
Instead, the card will include graphics of the White House and the American flag to commemorate the 58th presidential inauguration.

A social media user pointed out the unprecedented difference in the passes issued during Trump’s inauguration and Obama’s two swearing-in ceremonies… and a visit from Pope Francis!
