WASHINGTON: Republican former US president George W Bush will attend the inauguration of Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in Washington on January 20, his chief of workers stated Tuesday.
“President and Mrs. Bush look ahead to returning to the Capitol for the swearing in of President Biden and Vice President Harris,” Freddy Ford tweeted.
“Witnessing the peaceable switch of energy is a trademark of our democracy that by no means will get outdated,” he added, in a seeming jab at President Donald Trump who refuses to concede defeat and has not confirmed if he’ll attend Biden’s inauguration.
It will likely be the eighth swearing-in ceremony the Bushs have attended, Ford stated.
The assertion from Bush, the one dwelling former Republican president, got here throughout every week of excessive political tensions in the USA, with Trump desperately scheming to reverse his election loss.
On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence is to preside over a joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral Faculty vote that confirmed Biden because the winner of the White Home.
Trump is planning to deal with a rally referred to as in protest on the certification, and he urged Pence to “reject fraudulently chosen electors” — a transfer the vice chairman has no authorized authority to make.
Bush referred to as Biden on November 8, the day after US media referred to as the election for the Democrat, to supply his “heat congratulations.”
On the time he stated Biden was “an excellent man, who has gained his alternative to guide and unify our nation.”
“The American individuals can trust that this election was basically honest, its integrity can be upheld, and its end result is evident,” he added in a press release then.
