NBC 4 DC interviewed the man, who said he was from California, in the aftermath of the incident.

"I was trying to light myself on fire as an act of protest...protesting the fact that we've elected somebody completely incapable of respecting the Constitution of the United States," the man said.

Police said the man is expected to make a full recovery.
