Melania Trump to Attend Rosalynn Carter Tribute, Former President Not on the List

Former first lady Melania Trump is expected to attend a tribute service for former First Lady Rosalynn Carter who passed away recently.

Former President Donald Trump was reportedly not on the guest list, according to a report by Fox News.

"Trump will be joined by other living former first ladies – including Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush – the Carter Center said Monday in a news release announcing the guest list for the Tuesday service at Emory University in Atlanta," Fox News reported.

"In addition to the former first ladies, President Biden, First Lady Jill Biden as well as Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff are all slated to attend the invitation-only service," it added.

"Carter's widower, former President Jimmy Carter, 99, began receiving hospice care in February, but will still attend the service," Just the News reported.

"The couple were married for more than 77 years. The family plans to further hold a private funeral service for family and friends on Wednesday at the Maranatha Baptist Church," it continued.

Carter passed away last week at the age of 96. She was diagnosed with dementia earlier this year.

The tribute at Emory University is scheduled to include the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra playing favorite songs of the former first lady.

The couple is among the longest-living former first families, with their marriage the longest of any American president and first lady.

The tribute service will seek to honor the legacy of Rosalynn Carter while in an invite-only event that has reportedly excluded former President Trump from attendance in what could become a major controversy in the days ahead.
