A special pass to use the Metro Area Transit Authority system in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day will not include Donald Trump's photo, but Metro officials blame the Trump team for not giving them permission.
WTOP radio in D.C. noted the cards sell for $10 and allow unlimited Metro access the day of the presidential swearing-in. This year's card only features an image of the White House and an American flag.
The radio station reported Metro officials said they asked Trump's team for permission to use a photo but didn't receive any answer.
"Due to the long lead time to produce the cards, the new pass commemorates the national celebration of the 58th Presidential Inauguration," the agency said.
And The Washington Post noted the absence of a presidential photo is a change from the cards issued for the past two inaugurations "when President Obama's smiling face beamed from the front . . ."
