Former president George HW Bush wrote this letter to President-elect Donald Trump, explaining why he and his wife Barbara Bush can't make it to that thing happening in Washington D.C. on Friday.
92-year-old Bush--who may or may not have supported Hillary Clinton in the election--was rushed to a hospital in Houston over the weekend for "shortness of breath."
