A group of about five protesters attempted to disrupt Donald Trump's swearing-in on Friday, shouting the first few lines of the preamble of the Constitution, before they were drowned out by music and cheers of "Trump, Trump, Trump."

"We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility."

The shouting continued for several minutes. Eventually, people sitting behind the demonstrators pulled the folding chairs they were standing on out from underneath them, knocking them to them ground. Once security arrived, the demonstrators left peacefully.
