NEW YORK, Jan 4 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 04th Jan, 2017 ) : Two months after her election loss, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, plans to be in the crowd for the Jan 20 inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump in the capital city of Washington.

A Hillary aide said Tuesday that she and former president Bill Clinton will attend the ceremony. It will be the first joint public appearance by Trump and Hillary Clinton since the three presidential debates that preceded Trump's surprise election victory.
