Freddy Ford, the spokesperson for the Bushes, tweeted that the pair “look forward to returning to the Capitol for the swearing in of President Biden and Vice President Harris.”

The couple previously went to both of former President Obama's inaugurations, in 2009 and 2013, as well as Trump's in 2017.

Former President Carter, who is 96 years old, will not be attending Biden’s inauguration.

It is still unclear if Trump will attend the Jan. 20 event. He has railed against the November elections, leveling evidence-challenged claims that widespread voter fraud and irregularities cost him reelection.

The Bushes have already congratulated Biden on his victory.
