As Donald Trump was being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, many of his political opponents were on hand to witness the ceremony in person. Arguably, the most surprising name to attend was Hillary Clinton, who lost the election to Trump, despite winning the popular vote by nearly three million votes.

Inauguration Day

Most people didn't think it would ever happen, but the inauguration of Donald Trump took place in Washington, D.C. on Friday morning. While many Trump supporters were in attendance, over 100,000 protesters were expected to voice their opposition in the nation's capital.

As the political divide only widens among the American people, some have been able to put their partisan bias aside, at least for a little while. As the crowd filed in for the Trump inauguration, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton made their way to their seats, sitting along side Former President Jimmy Carter. Shortly before the ceremony kicked off, Clinton took to her Twitter account on January 20 to explain why she was in attendance.

"I'm here today to honor our democracy & its enduring values," Hillary Clinton wrote on Twitter, while adding, "I will never stop believing in our country & its future." Clinton concluded her tweet by using the hashtag "#Inauguration." Just minutes after her message was sent out on social media, Clinton received positive feed back from her followers.

Many praised the former Secretary of State for being a "strong woman," while using hashtags "#Imwithyou" and "#ImwithHer."

Moving forward

With Donald Trump taking the oath of office and becoming the leader of the free world, the Republican Party will now control the White House and all of Congress.

With Democrats having little power to stop them, it's likely that the conservative agenda will have its best chance to become law than it has in years past. Though the former host of "The Apprentice" has vowed to be the president of "all Americans," backlash to his administration has only continued to grow.

In the most recent Gallup poll, Donald Trump has just a 40 percent favorable rating among the American people, which is the lowest in the survey's 30-year history. Only time will tell how the Trump administration pans out, but the opposition doesn't appear to be letting the foot off the gas anytime soon.
