President Bush to lie in state Monday through Wednesday

George H.W. Bush Dead at 94 :: Politics :: News :: George H.W. Bush :: Paste

USA financial markets will close Wednesday for a national day of mourning to honor former President George H.W. Bush.

Goldie Hawn, Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Takei, Disney CEO Bob Iger, Jeffrey Wright, and Chaz Bono were also among those from the Hollywood sector sending thoughts up for the Bush family, as well as former Vice President Al Gore and former President Bill Clinton released tributes. Melania Trump attended instead. He will also designate Wednesday as a national day of mourning.

In August 2015, Trump tweeted a dig at the presidency of George H.W. Bush, writing: "The last thing we need is another Bush in the White House".

Trump's words of admiration for George H.W. Bush cap more than three years of hostility between the current president and the Bush family.

She said that journalists were "under attack", in "autocratic regimes from North Korea to the Philippines to Hungary". "The U.S. Clooney, along with her husband George , has been a vocal opponent of President Trump since the 2016 presidential election.

When the monarch visited George Bush Snr's son George W Bush in 2007 Washington during his presidential term, she was reunited with the former American leader at a return dinner she hosted at the ambassador's residence. "I am profoundly grateful for every minute I spent with President Bush and will always hold our friendship as one of my life's greatest gifts".

The proclamation hails Bush as "one of America's greatest points of light", a reference to one of the former leader's signature phrases about the impact of American civic culture.

Former American President George HW Bush was a leading statesman at a critical juncture of world history and passionate about strong Indo-US relations, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today. "Thousand points of light, I never quite got that one". "And, I would argue, set the best example for how to conduct yourself in the post-presidency".

While Mr Trump said this was a "special tribute" to Mr Bush, sending the U.S. military aircraft to transport a former president's remains is also standard practice. I know what he would say: "Nonsense".
