Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush have recently announced they will attend Trump inauguration on January 20th 2017.
There could be a strong message behind Hillary showing up to witness the swearing in of her fierce opponent. Shortly after Hillary lost, she said “We owe [Donald Trump] an open mind and a chance to lead.”.
This will be the first public appearance of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since the presidential debates.
Three of the ex-presidents are attending; Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. Former president George H.W. Bush is not expected to attend because of health reasons.
Despite being a fellow Republican, Bush did not vote for Trump on Election Day, a decision Trump later deemed “sad.” Bush’s father voted for Hillary Clinton, according to sources. During the primaries, both Bushes supported their family member, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who was a fierce challenger of Trump’s.
The Bushes are excited to witness the peaceful transfer of power, that shows American Democracy.
Obama will also be at the inauguration of his successor as it’s traditional.
Hillary Clinton has stayed low after she lost the Election. About a week after her defeat she came out and gave a speech to the Children’s Defense Fund, and admitted that it wasn’t easy to give the speech.
Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton waged a tough campaign. She described him as “temperamentally” unfit for the job, while the incoming president referred to her as “crooked Hillary.”
