Trump Sending His Presidential Plane To Fly HW Bush Casket To Washington

Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush were…Enlarge

Former U.S. president George H.W. Bush will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda next week.

On the living room table at Sam Zakhem's Lakewood home, a small bronze statue of former President George H.W. Bush demands attention.

"The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens", the 43rd president wrote.

"Well, I'm sorry Mr. President, I think it's a fair impression", Carvey said, as he made his hand gestures more dramatic.

As Bush sr.'s condition declined on Friday at his home in a gated community in Houston, Texas, he was placed on speakerphone with his son, who was at his home in Dallas.

In South America, Trump canceled a planned news conference, tweeting that "out of respect for the Bush Family and former President George H.W. Bush we will wait until after the funeral" to hold one.

Flowers laid are seen at the base of the statue at the George Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas on December 1, 2018.

On Monday, members of both the House and Senate will attend an arrival ceremony held at the U.S. Capitol at 4:45 p.m. EST. The remains will be transported by funeral auto (train) to College Station.

Trump had mocked two generations of the Bush family in his political rise, criticizing father and son presidents while defeating the other son, "low energy" Jeb Bush, for the Republican nomination.

Clinton said the two men had a respectful friendship during his own presidency, but it was after that they truly got to know each other, when President George W. Bush asked his father and Clinton to be involved in US relief efforts for the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami disaster and Hurricane Karina in 2005.

"President Bush guided our nation and the world to a peaceful and victorious conclusion of the Cold War", the Trumps wrote. "He and the First Lady will attend the funeral at the National Cathedral", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. "I love you, too", Bush replied.

Bush's health had been declining for several days.

North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Robin Hayes: "Last night we lost a great man. George Herbert Walker Bush was a man of honor and character". But the world of politics was calling this son of a USA senator.

In 2011, he joined Dwight Eisenhower as the only former USA presidents to be inducted into the golf Hall of Fame.

Tributes to "Bush Senior" have been pouring in online after his twenty-five-year-old kind-hearted note to Bill Clinton was circulated on the internet.
