In the world renowned Jean-Georges, located inside the Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York City, the people engaged in the coughing fits were activists protesting the Donald Trump's desire to repeal Obamacare.

The protesters then shouted: “We need Obamacare! Trump care makes us sick!”

Hotels are expected to be flashpoints during President-elect Trump's inauguration Friday, which is shaping up to be a security nightmare.

At the Hyatt Place Hotel, located within blocks of the parade route, Hillary Clinton supporters, Trump enthusiasts and protesters will all be comingling, and the hotel is doing everything it can to keep the peace.

"We'll have the National Guard right out front of the hotel 24/7," hotel manager Stacy Smith told Inside Edition. "We will have plain clothes off duty police officers who will be helping us out with security efforts as well."

She added: “Someone will always be around.”

Hotels were also the scene of violence during the campaign, punctuated with scenes of complete chaos.

A million visitors are expected in Washington, D.C., for the inauguration and authorities are pouring much effort into thwarting any terror truck attack like those in France last summer and Germany over Christmas.
