( - When it comes to Friday's weather, President-elect Donald Trump is looking on the bright side, even if it rains.

Ending his busy Thursday at a black tie reception at Washington's Union Station, Trump told the crowd:

Tomorrow we have a speech, probably around 12 o'clock. It may rain. It may not rain. I don't care -- doesn't matter. I mean, the truth is, if it really pours, that's okay, because people will realize it's my real hair! And that's okay. It's okay. It might be a mess, but they're going to see that it's my real hair."

'I have a feeling it's going to be beautiful'

Hours earlier, attending a concert at the Lincoln Memorial, Trump told the crowd, "There's never been a moment like this."

"We all got tired of seeing what was happening," he said. "And we wanted change, but we wanted real change. And I look so forward to tomorrow. We are going to see something that is going to be so amazing."

Trump talked about starting a "movement like we've never seen anywhere in the world."

He said he's going to "unify" the country -- and "Make America Great Again," or MAGA, as some have dubbed it.

"But we are going to make America great for all of our people -- everybody, everybody throughout our country. That includes the inner cities; that includes everybody. And we are going to do a special job."

Recalling his hard-fought presidential campaign, Trump said "they" didn't want to give him credit when the polls starting going up -- "because they forgot about a lot of us. On the campaign, I called it the forgotten man and the forgotten woman.

"Well, you are not forgotten anymore -- that I can tell you. Not forgotten anymore."

Trump thanked his family and his supporters, promising them, "I will work so hard. We are going to get it turned around. We're going to bring our jobs back. We are not going to let other countries take our jobs any longer.

"We are going to build up our great military. We are going to build it up. We are going to strengthen our borders. We are going to do things that haven't been done for our country for many, many decades. It's going to change. I promise you, it's going to change.

He also mentioned the weather:

"So I'll see you tomorrow. And I don't care, frankly, if it's going to be beautiful or if it's going to rain like crazy -- makes no difference to me. I have a feeling it's going to be beautiful," he added.
