From The Hill:
President George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush will attend President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration this month.
In a statement Tuesday, the former president’s office said the Bushes 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.”
The decision makes Bush the second living president to attend Trump’s inauguration ceremonies. President Jimmy Carter announced his decision to attend last year.
President George H.W. Bush, 92, is not expected to attend. His spokesman cited his advanced age in a statement to Politico last month about the president’s decision not to attend the inauguration.
President Bill Clinton has not announced whether he will attend the event after Trump’s contentious presidential race against his wife, Hillary Clinton.
President Obama is expected, as per custom, to attend inauguration events at the Capitol building before departing.
