Despite the differences Trump has had with the Bush family, he will attend the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush, who passed away this weekend at the age of 94.
FOX News reports:
George H.W. Bush to lie in state in US Capitol; Trump to attend funeral
Former President George H.W. Bush will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda next week, congressional leaders announced Saturday — a move that has become customary to honor the passing of former presidents.
Bush, who spent a lifetime in public service and served as the 41st president between 1989 and 1993, died shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush.
He is survived by five children, including former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. A sixth child died in early childhood. The late former president also is survived by 17 grandchildren…
The White House said Saturday that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will attend Bush’s funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. Trump has also designated December 5 as a National Day of Mourning.
Meanwhile, plans for a state funeral were already underway, according to The Washington Post, with events expected in Texas and Washington.
It’s great that Trump is doing this. It is the right thing to do and it will be good for the country.
