An inauguration day luncheon featured an interest moments this afternoon when America’s new President Donald Trump asked everyone in attendance to stand and applaud former President Bill Clinton and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The recent campaign featured numerous bitter exchanges between Trump and the Clintons, with Trump at one point telling Hillary Clinton he’d attempt to have her imprisoned if he were elected.
At the luncheon, he said,
There is something I wanted to say, because I was very honored—very, very honored—when I heard that President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton was coming today …. I have a lot of respect for those two people.
So far, at least 95 people have been arrested in Washington DC as some demonstrators became violent during protests near the inauguration of Donald Trump. At least two police officers were injured and taken to the hospital.
Transition day has arrived. Just moments ago, the out-going first family greeted the incoming one at the door of the White House. Despite the contentiousness of the election, the exchange was surprisingly warm.
In a few hours, Donald Trump will become the President of the United States. Discuss
Next week, the Obamas are moving out of The White House, and the Trumps are moving in. And, just like any big move, it involved saying goodbye to some old stuff. The Trumps told the former first family that they didn’t want to keep the family’s playground on the grounds, so the Obamas donated it to a homeless shelter.
