Carter only ex-president to say he will attend Trump festivities
Jimmy Carter reportedly remains the only former U.S. president confirmed to attend Donald Trump’s swearing-in ceremony with less than a month until inauguration day.
While President Obama will be on hand to pass the symbolic torch to Mr. Trump on Jan. 20, he’s so far slated to be joined by only one other former commander in chief, Politico reported.
Mr. Carter, 92, told a Sunday school class in Georgia earlier this month that he plans to attend Mr. Trump’s inauguration.
George H.W. Bush, 92, will skip the event, with a spokesman citing his advanced age and health. George W. Bush and Bill Clinton haven’t decided whether to attend, according to Politico.
