On January 20th, Donald Trump will assume the presidency of the United States from Barack Obama hands. In the activity, Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solís will not be present.
In the American nation is not a tradition to invite the presidents of different countries to participate in the event. This has been the tradition of this country throughout its history.
In the US it is unusual that other heads of state go to that event. Not that we cannot do it, but in general there is no tradition of invitations,”
said the president, confirming that he will not be in the event.
However, Costa Rica will be represented at the handover. It will do so through the Ambassador in Washington, Román Macaya.
Generally, the ambassadors that represent the countries are the ones that keep the tradition that prevails in the United States,”
