Trump has proclaimed Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, as a National Day of Mourning in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush.

Like Bush, Dole is a military veteran. So, before I write any more, watch below what happened at the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday when Sen.

Dole, 95, has had a number of health issues in recent years and struggled to stand up from his wheelchair to salute Bush, his one-time political rival. Once steadied, Dole saluted.

"As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we're comforted to know he'll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed, that he brought to 41", President George W. Bush said in a statement.

Bush passed away on Friday at the age of 94.

This is the eighth funeral train in US history and the first since Dwight D. Eisenhower's body traveled from the National Cathedral in Washington through seven states to his Kansas hometown of Abilene 49 years ago.

Mr Trump has ordered the federal government closed on Wednesday for a national day of mourning. And the Trumps visited members of the Bush family at the Blair House presidential guesthouse, where they are staying.

The late Mr Bush called Mr Trump a "blowhard".

"Here lies a great man", said Rep. Paul Ryan, the House speaker, and "a gentle soul".

President Donald Trump did not attend, but he and first lady Melania Trump came to the Capitol later on Monday to pay tribute.

After Thursday's private services, the former president will be taken by a train, pulled by an engine commissioned in his honor, 120 kilometers north to the city of College Station for burial at his presidential library on the grounds of Texas A&M University.

The locomotive was painted to resemble Air Force One, but George H.W. Bush joked that if it had been around during his presidency, he may have preferred to ride the rails rather than take to the skies.

His final resting place will be alongside Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years who died in April, and Robin Bush, the daughter they lost to leukaemia in 1953 aged three.

The New York Stock and NASDAQ will be closed for the day.
