George W. Bush Confirmed His Attendance in Trump’s Inauguration Ceremony

Former U.S. President George W. Bush confirmed that he will participate in Donald Trump’s Inauguration along with ex-president Jimmy Carter, unfortunately former President George H.W. Bush will not attend the inauguration due to his health problems.

From West Journalism:

Ex- President George W. Bush will be participating in President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, meaning two of America’s existing ex-presidents have affirmed their participation at the ceremony.

Former President Jimmy Carter said past month he would attend. Former President George H.W. Bush is not participating due to his health.

“President and Mrs. George W. Bush will attend the 58th Presidential Inauguration Ceremony on January 20, 2017, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.,” a claim from Bush’s office claimed.

“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,” the statement included.

The Bush clan distanced itself from Donald Trump in the wake of the Republican primary procedure in which Trump proded and defeated former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, George W. Bush’s brother. Nevertheless, George W. Bush reportedly supported Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson.

George W. Bush has considered that the presidential shift is a uniquely fantastic facet of American democracy.

“The peaceful transfer of authority is rare in history, yet common in our country. With a simple oath, we affirm old traditions and make new beginnings,” he stated in his 2001 inaugural address.

At that time, Bush spoke about treating a divided nation.

” … sometimes our differences run so deep, it seems we share a continent but not a country. We do not accept this, and we will not allow it,” he stated then.

“America has never been united by blood or birth or soil. We are bound by ideals that move us beyond our backgrounds, lift us above our interests, and teach us what it means to be citizens. Every child must be taught these principles. Every citizen must uphold them. And every immigrant, by embracing these ideals, makes our country more, not less, American,” Bush said then.

The biggest uncertainty over a former president attending Donald Trump’s inauguration worries former President Bill Clinton.

Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, the former president’s spouse, in a harsh campaign. Even though in the wake of the election Trump openly tried to repair fences with the Clintons, Trump and Bill Clinton engaged in a brief sniping match with the media last month.

New York Magazine, estimating anonymous providers, said the Clinton are expected to participate in.

President Barack Obama is needed to attend as part of the formal ceremony at the Capitol, after which he will leave.
