George Bush will attend Biden’s inauguration, Jimmy Carter misses it

Former US President George Bush will attend Mr.  Jio Biden’s inauguration later this month,  even as President Donald  Trump and his G.O.P. allies refuse to accept the results.

Former US president George W Bush will reportedly be attending the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on January 20. Bush, 74, would be accompanied by former First Lady Laura Bush.

Bush’s decision to attend Biden’s inauguration assumes significance given that he is from the Republican Party and President Donald Trump has refused to accept the results of the elections. Several Congressmen of the Republican Party are planning to object to the election results at the US Capitol on Wednesday.

As Chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Biden had supported Bush in his key foreign policy initiative of the Civilian Nuclear Deal with India. This was significant given that there was a bitter political divide among the Democrats and the Republicans on several key foreign policies and national security issues.

Biden's low-key inauguration on January 20 will include a Pass in Review on the East Front, a presidential escort to the White House, and a virtual parade across America following his official swearing-in at the US Capitol.
