Carter only ex-pres­i­dent to say he will at­tend Trump fes­tiv­i­ties

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — An­drew Blake

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.
