Former US President George W. Bush will be present at the inauguration of Joe Biden as the country’s new president, an act that will be held on January 20, as confirmed by his spokesman.
“The president and Mrs. Bush hope to return to the Capitol for the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President (Kamala) Harris,” said the head of his office, Freddy Ford, through his account on the social network Twitter.
Thus, he stated that “it is the eighth inauguration in which they have had the privilege of participating” and added that both “will witness a peaceful transfer of powers that is a mark of democracy that never goes out of style.”
Bush, 74, is the only former Republican president still alive and has had several disagreements with the current president, Donald Trump, in recent years. Trump has so far refused to admit his defeat to Biden and has gone to court arguing an alleged fraud to try to prevent his access to the White House.
