“Thanks for standing, speaking & marching for our values @womensmarch. Important as ever. I truly believe we’re always Stronger Together,” she wrote in a tweet Saturday morning.
The former Democratic presidential nominee, who was defeated by Donald Trump in November, was left off the list of women who are being officially honored by Saturday’s march, which is expected to draw more than 200,000 women and men. The decision sparked controversy among some Clinton supporters.
Clinton sent a similarly hopeful message Friday, when she attended Trump’s inauguration and promised to “never stop believing in our country and its future.”
Protesters on Saturday morning packed subways and streets en route to the Women’s March on Washington, carrying signs that challenged Trump’s rhetoric and proposals. Early crowd estimates suggested the turnout will top that of Trump’s inauguration.
