Hillary Clinton Has a Powerful Explanation for Why She Attended Trump's Inauguration

"I will never stop believing in our country and its future."

Hillary Clinton arrived at Donald Trump's inauguration Friday morning in Washington, President Bill Clinton, despite a bitter campaign that was mired in scandal and accusations of Russian interference. She wore a white coat in an echo of her white pantsuit at the Democratic National Convention, which was seen as an homage to the suffragette movement.

After arriving, she (or likely a member of her team) posted a message on Twitter about why she was there, even after a divisive campaign. "I'm here today to honor our democracy & its enduring values," the post reads. "I will never stop believing in our country and its future."

Her decision to attend was praised by people on both sides of the aisle, as a nod to the important of a peaceful transition of power.
