This is fantastic!
Former president George W. Bush and Laura Bush will attend President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, Bush’s office announced Tuesday.
“They are pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power — a hallmark of American democracy — and swearing-in of President Trump and Vice President Pence,” Bush’s office said in a statement.
Bush will join President Barack Obama and former president Jimmy Carter as the former West Wing occupants to attend. While former presidents traditionally attend the inauguration ceremonies, it is unclear if Bill and Hillary Clinton plan to attend.
George H.W. Bush will not be there, with a spokesman citing the 92-year-old former president’s age as the reason for his planned absence.
This follows earlier news that Jimmy Carter would be the only former president to attend the inauguration, signaling a snub to the president-elect.
