Trump Meets George W. Bush on the Eve of George H.W. Bush’s Funeral

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump met with former president George W. Bush in front of the White House on Tuesday, on the eve of the state funeral in memory of the latter’s father, also former president George H.W. Bush.

Trump and First Lady Melania met for about 20 minutes with Bush and his wife, Laura, at the Blair House, a historic home across the street from the White House that traditionally houses the American president’s guests.

None of them made statements to the press about the meeting, but Trump had tweeted on his official account that he would meet “with the wonderful Bush family” before the funeral.

Upon arriving at Blair House, the cameras picked up a handshake between Trump and Bush, both smiling, and the kiss Laura Bush gave Melania on the cheek.

The current first lady greeted former President Bush with two kisses on the cheek, and then the four entered the building.

In the morning, Melania invited Laura Bush and her family to visit the White House to observe the Christmas decorations at the presidential residence.

“The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!” Trump said on his twitter account.

The US president has avoided any controversy after the death of George W. Bush’s father on Nov. 30, even though over the past two years he has repeatedly criticized the two former presidents.

Trump will attend the former president’s state funeral in Washington’s National Cathedral on Wednesday, which is expected to be attended by the four living former presidents of the United States: Democrats Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter; and the Republican George W. Bush, who will deliver the eulogy.

After the funeral, the coffin of the former president will be transferred to Texas again, to receive a final farewell from his family on Thursday.

The remains of George H. W. Bush will rest together with “the love of his life,” as he always defined his wife Barbara Bush, in the Bush Library located in College Station, Texas, some 160 kilometers from Houston.
