My1sttoday: Obama and Michelle will attend Biden Inauguration on Jan. 20th. Former President Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama will be in attendance for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration later this month, a spokeswoman confirmed Friday.
“President and Mrs. Obama look forward to attending the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on January 20 in Washington, D.C.,” Katie Hill said in a statement.
The Obamas were widely expected to be there when Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are sworn into office. Confirmation of their attendance came shortly after President Trump said he would not attend the swearing-in ceremony.
The Obamas will join former President Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush on Inauguration Day at the Capitol. Former President Carter, who is 96, and his wife Rosalynn Carter are not expected to attend.
