President Donald Trump recognized the nationwide funeral for previous President George H.W. Bush on Wednesday.
” This is not a funeral, this is a day of event for a fantastic male who has led a long and prominent life,” Trump composed on Twitter Wednesday. “He will be missed!”
Both President Trump and First Woman Melania Trump will join the Bush household, the Clintons, the Carters, and the Obamas for the funeral which will be held at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.
Former President George W. Bush will provide the speech memorializing his father.
Other speakers will include former Senator Alan Simpson of Wyoming, former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney, and presidential historian and Bush biographer Jon Meacham.
The Trumps went to the Bush household Tuesday night at the Blair House across the street from the White House.
Jeb Bush, Trump’s former rival for the Republican election for president expressed a comparable belief on Tuesday.
” This is a time to celebrate George H.W. Bush, not to grieve his loss, and that’s what we’re doing as a household right now,” he said during an event in Washington, DC on Tuesday.
Jeb Bush added that Trump “couldn’t have been nicer” to the household after his daddy’s death, thanking them for the “thoughtful” hospitality.
Very strong signals being sent out by China once they returned home from their long journey, consisting of stops, from Argentina. Not to sound ignorant or anything, but I think President Xi implied every word of what he said at our long and ideally historical conference. ALL subjects went over!
