George W. Bush made an announcement on Tuesday that will come as a relief to conservatives everywhere when he revealed he will attend Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20.
CNN reported that George W. Bush released a statement that he will be attending the inauguration with his wife Laura to show their support for Trump and a peaceful transition of power.
“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.,” the statement read. “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.”
Until today, former President Jimmy Carter was the only former commander in chief who had confirmed he would attend the inauguration. Former President George H.W. Bush has already said he will not be attending the inauguration due to poor health.
It is not known whether Bill Clinton will be attending the inauguration.
George W. Bush had previously spoken out against Trump during his campaign, publicly saying that he had decided not to vote at all in this election. He likely still had hard feelings towards Trump for the way he treated his brother Jeb Bush during the primaries.
We’re glad to see that Bush has decided to put this nonsense aside to attend this inauguration. SHARE this story if you support this move!
