Jimmy Carter will not attend Biden's inauguration

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter teaches Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church Sunday Nov. 3 2019 in Plains Ga

The 96-year-old, who in 2019 became the longest-living president in the history of the USA, has spent most of the COVID-19 pandemic at his hometown of Plains, Georgia, the Associated Press reported.

Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will be present when Biden is sworn into office in Washington on January 20, spokesman Freddy Ford said in a tweet Tuesday.

Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will attend President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration in Washington D.C. later this month, his chief of staff Freddie Ford announced on Tuesday.

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. Carter representatives told The Associated Press that the Democrat sends his "best wishes" to Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

Biden was a young DE senator and Carter ally during the Georgian's term in the White House. The Bushes also attended Barack Obama and Donald Trump's first inaugurations.

The announcement from Bush, a Republican, came a day before Congress was scheduled to convene for a joint session to confirm the electoral college vote won by Biden.

"The president and M Bush are eager to return to Capitol Hill for the swearing-in of President Biden and Vice President Harris, "tweeted Freddy Ford, spokesperson for 43 American president of history".

Bush, 74, is the only living Republican ex-president following his father George H.W. Bush's death in 2018.

He no longer teaches Sunday School at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, as he had for decades, but still participates in church activities via video amid the COVID-19 pandemic. A spokeswoman for the Carter Center, the nonprofit that oversees the former president's humanitarian endeavors, confirmed that the Carters would not travel to Washington for the event. His brother Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, was defeated by Trump in the 2016 Republican primary contest.

At 96 years old, former US President Jimmy Carter is the oldest living president.
