Former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush plan to attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden according to a representative.
“President and Mrs. Bush look forward to returning to the Capitol for the swearing in of President Biden and Vice President Harris,” Bush’s Chief of Staff Freddy Ford posted on Twitter.
Ford said he believes Biden’s event will be the eighth inauguration the couple has attended, including President Trump’s.
The Bush’s attendance will be in sharp contrast to Trump, who stated on Twitter that he would not attend the inauguration before being permanently banned from the social media platform over tweets the company believed incited violence.
Trump, who has not appeared in public since a violent mob of his supporters besieged the Capitol on Wednesday and tried to halt the transfer of power, will be the first incumbent president since Andrew Johnson not to attend his successor’s inauguration.
