Inauguration Day for Donald Trump is less than a month away, yet only one former U.S. President has made an RSVP to attend: 92-year-old Democrat Jimmy Carter.
The Bush father and son duo, as well as the Clintons, have not made reservations to attend the event yet. Bill and Hillary Clinton have kept low profiles since the end of the election, and Clinton spokesperson Angel Urena has declined to comment if the couple will ultimately attend.
George W. Bush spokesperson Freddy Ford claims the former Republican president has not made a decision yet if he will ultimately attend the inauguration. However, it has been confirmed that Bush’s father and former president, George H.W. Bush, will not be attending the inauguration due to his fragile age of 92. However, Carter shares the same age as Bush and will be attending. Some have speculated the Bushes are still upset over how Trump “treated” failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush during the primaries.
Despite Carter’s political affiliation, old age and being an endorser to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, he announced on Sunday in Georgia he will be attending the event. It’s traditional that all former presidents attend the special ceremony for the swearing in of a new president. In 2009, all four previous presidents — both Bushes, Carter and Clinton — attended President Obama’s inauguration.
