CNN Repeatedly Attacks Trump For Paying Respects To George H.W. Bush

Did For Agent's Toddler Diagnosed With Cancer

Trump, who was not in the Capitol, wrote on Twitter that he was "looking forward to being with the Bush Family to pay my respects to President George H.W. Bush" at Wednesday's funeral. "No one better harmonized the joy of life and the duty of life".

Dole worked with Bush when he was President Ronald Reagan's vice president and helped Bush get the Americans with Disabilities Act through Congress.

"Above all, though, President George H.W. Bush was a good man who treated others with kindness and respect - regardless of their politics".

Sully the service dog visited with former President George H.W. Bush's casket on Tuesday. "And he exemplified what it truly means to be a leader", said Carper.

Mr. Bush is the first president since President Ford's 2006 death to lie in state, and the nation's capital excels at the pageantry.

America's VetDogs, the organization that assigned Sully to former President Bush in June after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, tweeted a sweet photo of Sully sleeping Monday, after a long day comforting mourners.

In an invocation opening Monday evening's ceremony, the U.S. House chaplain, the Rev. Patrick J Conroy, praised Bush's commitment to public service, from Navy pilot to congressman, United Nations ambassador, envoy to China and then Central Intelligence Agency director before being elected vice president and then president.

Trump had a complicated relationship with the late president.

"Today, this hero has returned to the Capitol a final time", said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican.

Bush was remembered just feet away from what he called "Democracy's front porch", the west-facing steps of the Capitol where he was sworn in as president. And flanked by statues of his fellow champions whom he joined in making that story possible. In addition on Fox Nation, subscribers will gain exclusive access to a vast library of content, including a special presentation of "President George H.W. Bush: The Man And His Mission".

Bush's casket will be transported by a motorcade Wednesday morning to the Washington National Cathedral, where a state funeral will be held at 11 a.m.(1600 GMT) and be attended by Trump and the first lady.

Remembrances to George and Barbara Bush sprang up in the Houston neighbourhood where they made their home, at a memorial to the late president at a city park and at the airport named in his honor.
