Bill and Hillary Clinton plan to attend President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
The Clintons will join former presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, who also plan to be in attendance.
The campaign between Trump and Clinton became very contentious at many points during the race.
“Trump repeatedly blasted the Clintons as corrupt, invited those who accused President Bill Clinton of sexual harassment or abuse to a debate, and called on Hillary Clinton to be sent to jail for her handling of classified emails while secretary of State,” The Hill reported.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton infamously described half of Trump’s supporters as a basket of “deplorables” and “irredeemable.” She expounded that they are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
Clinton accused the candidate himself of trafficking in bigotry and racist rhetoric and building his campaign on “prejudice and paranoia.”
“[Donald Trump’s] taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party,” Clinton said in a speech in Reno, Nev. in August. “His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.”
Vice President-elect Mike Pence called Clinton out regarding her “deplorables” comment at the time, stating, “Let me just say, from the bottom of my heart, Hillary, they are not a basket of anything. They are Americans and they deserve your respect.”
As reported by Western Journalism, Bill Clinton and Trump got into a back-and-forth on social media, when the former said the president-elect, “doesn’t know much. One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”
Clinton’s assertion that Trump mainly knew how to get angry white men to vote for him, does not give credit where it is due.
Trump garnered 42 percent of the women vote overall, taking 62 percent of the white women voters without college degrees and 45 percent of those with one, according to Fortune.
At 29 percent, Trump also grabbed a greater portion of the Hispanic electorate than former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney did in 2012.
Further, the Republican candidate spent far more time in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania than Hillary Clinton did, particularly during the closing days of the election. Those swing states proved decisive in his come from behind victory.
“Watching a rival sworn in from up close has happened several times in American politics, including when outgoing vice presidents Richard Nixon in 1961 and Al Gore in 2001 watched from the risers as the men who had beaten them for the presidency raised their hands for the oath of office,” according to Politico.
