Why did Former President Jimmy Carter did not attend the Biden-Harris inaugural ceremony?
America witnesses the most awaited Swearing-In ceremony of President Joe Biden and Vice President, Kamala Harris this Wednesday. It was rather heartbreaking when we came to know that the only living Democratic former president Jimmy Carter could not grace the ceremony with his presence because of his severe health conditions.
However, President Joe was kind enough to remember the 96-year-old Former President in his inaugural address. He also mentioned Carter’s wife Rosalynn Carter. President Biden said
“I know the resilience of our Constitution, the strength, the strength of our nation. As does President Carter, who I spoke with last night, who cannot be with us today but whom we salute for a lifetime of service,”
Carter’s family had informed prior in January of them not attending the event and as per reports, their decision comes as the ongoing pandemic has made travel risky, especially for older Americans. Though, Carters did not verify their main reason for not being able to attend the ceremony. In a statement President Carter mentioned Joe and complimented Joe for being a loyal and dedicated friend “Joe Biden was my first and most effective supporter in the Senate. For decades, he’s been my loyal and dedicated friend,” Carter said. “Joe has the experience, character, and decency to bring us together.”
