Neither Presidents George H.W. Bush nor George W. Bush will attend the convention. Neither of them has endorsed Trump and they've made it clear they plan to stay out of the race this year.
A spokesman for the elder Bush said in May that "at age 91, President Bush is retired from politics" and won't make the trip to Cleveland. "He naturally did a few things to help Jeb, but those were the 'exceptions that proved the rule,'" he said.
Bush 43's aide, Freddy Ford, put it more bluntly: "He does not plan to attend," he told Politico at the time.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, who was the GOP's presidential nominee in 2008, is facing a tight reelection race and has decided to opt out of the convention.
Donald Trump insulted McCain last summer when he questioned his reputation as a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam.
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, has not been shy about his opposition to Trump. Romney, who also served as governor of Massachusetts, decided in early 2015 not to run for president again.
Romney has called a "phony" and a "fraud" and unfit to serve as president.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the sitting governor of the state, told the Washington Post he has no plans to speak at the convention. As the home-state governor, he'll be in Cleveland and attending events, but will not be seen with Trump. In June he had told Fox News that he didn't know whether he could support Trump for president. "Right now, the divisiveness, the division, the name calling -- it just doesn't go down well with me," he said.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush recently reiterated that he can't vote for either Donald Trump or presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, saying that "conservatism is temporarily dead" while Trump is the party's standard-bearer.
Bush, who dropped out of the GOP presidential race earlier this year, won't be attending the convention, he said, but added that he'll "probably watch, sure."
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, initially said in May that he would be willing to attend and speak at the convention, but changed course when he decided to run for reelection late last month.
"Marco had planned to go to the convention before he decided to seek reelection," his spokeswoman told the Tampa Bay Times. "Since Marco got into the race late, he will be in Florida campaigning and meeting with voters instead of going to Ohio."

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, is planning to steer clear of the convention.
While he has warmed up to Donald Trump at times, he has also warned that a Trump administration could lead to another 9/11.
Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Illinois, one of the most vulnerable senators up for reelection, has said that he cannot support Trump for president, and has called him "too bigoted and racist" to be commander in chief.
