We all know the situation between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The two never seemed to get along even after the election was won by the now President Trump. So when Hillary Clinton showed up to the inauguration, some people were shocked.
Despite her disagreements with Trump and the tension that goes with it, Clinton appeared with her husband at the events. Her twitter account revealed her true reason in coming. She came to honor America and the fact that we are a democracy.
Her Twitter post said exactly why she didn’t skip and it’s taking the internet by storm:
I’m here today to honor our democracy & its enduring values. I will never stop believing in our country & its future. #Inauguration

The former First Lady also attended the Congressional Luncheon. At the conclusion of the meal President Trump spoke and honored the Clinton’s for coming.
“I was very honored when I heard President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton was coming today,” Trump said. As applause broke out, Trump asked everyone in the room to rise and join in.
Trump joined the applause himself, and as it died down, he said, “There’s nothing more I can say, because I have a lot of respect for those two people.”

America was built on democracy and it was designed for a president. We may not like them, but our freedom gives us the ability to make a difference and we need to start taking part. Clinton peacefully stepped back when she lost the presidential election and has continued to be at peace with all the events.
