Hillary Clinton to Attend Donald Trump’s Inauguration


Hillary and Bill Clinton have confirmed they will attend Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony on January 20.

Meanwhile, former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura have also announced plans to turn up, saying they want to “witness the peaceful transfer of power”.

Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th US president on Capitol Hill.

He defeated Hillary Clinton in November’s election and castigated George W. Bush over the Iraq war and 9/11.

Before January 3 announcement, Jimmy Carter was the only former president to have said he would attend the nation’s 58th inauguration.

Another former White House incumbent, 92-year-old George H.W. Bush has already said he will not attend the event, citing his age.

Despite Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote by nearly three million ballots, Donald Trump succeeded in getting the all-important Electoral College votes required to win.

During the election campaign, Donald Trump ridiculed George W. Bush’s claim to have kept Americans safe, pointing out the 9/11 attacks happened on his watch.

The New York billionaire had also accused the 43rd president of lying about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Donald Trump pummeled another member of the Bush clan, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, calling his primary season rival “low-energy”.

The now president-elect had also savaged his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, labeling her “Crooked Hillary”.
