Many things to be expected at Trump’s Inauguration come January 20, 2017. Past Presidents of the US will be in attendance. Trump’s opponent during the election, Hillary Clinton will also be at the inauguration.
Two months after her election loss, Hillary Clinton plans to be in the crowd for the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump at the capitol.
An aide to the Democratic nominee confirmed Tuesday that she and former president Bill Clinton will attend this month’s ceremony, speaking on condition of anonymity until plans are announced publicly.
It will be the first joint public appearance by Trump and Hillary Clinton since the three presidential debates that preceded Trump’s surprise election victory.
Bill Clinton will be one of the three ex-presidents who will be at the Jan. 20 inauguration of Trump; Bush, the 43rd president, will also attend Trump’s inauguration as the 45th, as will former President Jimmy Carter.
Bush and former first lady Laura Bush “are pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power — a hallmark of American democracy,” spokesman Freddy Ford said Tuesday.
Former president George H.W. Bush is not expected to attend because of health reasons.
As is tradition, current President Obama will also be at the inauguration of his successor.
Mitt Romney, who lost the 2012 election to President Obama, did not attend Obama’s second inaugural ceremony, opting to spend the day in La Jolla. He had dropped by the White House weeks before for a postelection lunch with Obama.
BuzzKenya also gathered that previous election losers, including Sens. John McCain and John F. Kerry, were on hand for the inaugurations. Al Gore, as the outgoing vice president, also attended George W. Bush’s first inaugural in 2001 despite the close election result and recount battle in Florida.
