The Clintons Will Attend Trump's Inauguration

After an ugly and divisive campaign, it was uncertain whether or not Hillary Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, would attend president-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on January 20th. But today, after months of waiting, aides for both of them confirmed with CNN that the pair will be attending the event.

An aide for former president George W. Bush and his wife Laura also confirmed that the former president will be attending.

It's traditional for any living former presidents to attend an inauguration, but after Donald Trump managed to rub seemingly everyone the wrong way, people were curious whether other politicians could put the ugliness behind them.

Former president Jimmy Carter has already said he will attend the inauguration, and the only other living president, George H.W. Bush, has said he won't be coming because of his age. Presidents Carter and Bush are both 92.

After Trump attacked president Bush Jr.'s brother Jeb during the presidential race - calling him 'low energy' - the Bush family stayed away from the Republican National Convention. There were worries they would also snub the president's big moment, but those worries have clearly proven false.

America's Got Talent star Jackie Evancho is scheduled to perform at the ceremony, along with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Radio City Rockettes.
