Bill and Hillary Clinton dropped a bombshell on Tuesday when they announced that they will indeed attend Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20.
KXAN reported that the announcement was made by aides for both Clintons. They did not give any further details at this time.
This came hours after former President George W. Bush finally announced that he will attend the inauguration with his wife Laura. Before today, the only former president who had confirmed that he would be attending was Jimmy Carter.
“President and Mrs. George W. Bush will attend the 58th Presidential Inauguration Ceremony on January 20, 2017, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.,” Bush’s statement read, according to CNN. “They are pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power — a hallmark of American democracy — and swearing-in of President Trump and Vice President Pence.”
George H.W. Bush has already announced that he will not be attending Trump’s inauguration due to his own poor health. Many expected the Clintons to also sit this inauguration out, given how awkward it could be for Hillary to have to share the stage with Trump just weeks after the bitter election.
