Dole rises to salute George H.W. Bush

Donald Trump Melania Trump Pay Respects To George HW Bush

Walesa says it was his way of paying tribute to a US leader who fought for freedom.

The previous evening, more than 11,000 people paid their respects as his casket that lay in repose in Houston all night. "So we got quite a lot done", Dole said. "And today we have trouble".

The Honor Guard carries the casket of former president George Herbert Walker Bush down the center isle following a memorial ceremony at the National Cathedral in Washington, Dec. 5, 2018.

The late Mr Bush called Mr Trump a "blowhard". His burial is Thursday.

A national day of mourning has been declared for today to honor the life of the 41st president of the United States, George H.W. Bush, who died November 30 in Houston at age 94. The Oak Ridge Boys recalled performing for him for decades and joked that Bush "fancied himself to be a good bass singer".

Allen says the band is honored to keep its promise to Bush to perform at his funeral. The federal office closures represent a "mark of respect for George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President of the United States", Trump's executive order said. He was the Republican presidential nominee in 1996.

A Connecticut Yankee from a wealthy family who moved to Texas to be an oilman, Bush has been eulogized as a president with a keen sense of civility and duty.
