National day of mourning: What’s open and what’s closed on Wednesday

Sully The Service Dog Arrives To View Owner George H.W. Bush's Casket

Bob Dole was helped out of his wheelchair Tuesday to salute former President George H.W. Bush as he lay in state at the Capitol Rotunda.

They were joined by former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who led the U.S. military during the 1991 Gulf War, as well as USA generals from that campaign against Iraq. Brad Hibbard was among those who brought Sully to the Bush's summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, last June, offering the president companionship and support during his time of grief.

Friends and family will celebrate his life during a memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington.

Like Bush, Dole is a military veteran.

President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, planned to visit with the mourning family at Blair House, near the White House.

Mr Trump's relationship with the Bush family has been tense.

Carney hits back at critics of Brexit scenarios
May's Brexit agreement with European Union leaders faces deep opposition in parliament, including from within her own Conservative Party, ahead of a key vote on December 11.

It was a truly heartbreaking scene, just days after Bush's passing on Saturday 1 December, when a photo emerged of Sully laying by his former master's casket - now people have been left in tears again as the dog showed up to pay his respects, dressed in his finest therapy dog vest adorned with the Stars and Stripes. Former President George W. Bush and his wife greeted the Trumps outside before everyone went in for the private, 20-minute visit.

Others dignitaries who attended on Tuesday included Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, along with several Trump staffers.

"Year after year, post after post, George Bush stayed the course", McConnell said. The late President Bush called Trump a "blowhard". Democrat Bill Clinton coasted to victory, ending Bush's presidency.

Mr Trump once mocked Mr Bush Snr's well-known "thousand points of light" phrase, used to describe the positive impact volunteers have on the country, asking "what the hell is that?", and was fiercely critical of both the former president's sons.

"I'm just here to pay my respects", said Jane Hernandez, a retired doctor.
