Biden, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sen. Tim Scott (R – S.C.), and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R.-Wis.) are all expected to attend the independence day celebration in Honduras.
But what will be missing from the celebration?
Biden and Ryan have said they will not attend.
The White House said Friday that Biden will attend the annual Independence Day celebration, but it did not say what he would be wearing.
“Biden and Ryan will not be attending the event, a White House official told ABC News.
The Vice President, who has previously attended events in Mexico, is expected to speak on the sidelines, as well as give remarks on the anniversary of the coup that overthrew the democratically elected president, Manuel Zelaya.
In recent days, Biden and Scott have been criticized for not attending.
The vice president is also expected to address the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus luncheon, which has been scheduled for later this month.
The Congressional Hispanic caucus is comprised of House members from both parties.
A representative from the event said Friday night that it would not be happening.
A senior administration official said that Biden and the vice president would be attending both the annual event and a luncheon on Jan. 5, the Congressional Hispanic Heritage Month.
Biden’s office has not responded to ABC News’ requests for comment.
Ryan, who is also a member of the Congressional Congressional Hispanic caucuses, has said that he will attend.
Ryan and Biden were in Honduras for the event.
Ryan was in Honduras this week for a congressional Hispanic caucus event and met with Zelaya’s supporters at the Honduran consulate in Mexico City.
Biden is also scheduled to address a Congressional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
The luncheon will be hosted by the Congressional Leadership Fund, a group aligned with Ryan’s reelection campaign.
Ryan is also set to address another Congressional Hispanic event in the state of New York on Friday.
It will be held at the state Capitol in Albany.
