Unlike another GOP family, the Bush family have class.
The Bush family have indicated that they want President Trump to feel welcomed.
President Trump just tweeted on Wednesday, he is looking forward to being with the Bush family.
The Bush family has conveyed its intention that the planned state funeral for former President George H.W. Bush, who died last Friday, will steer clear of the anti-Trump sentiment seen at Sen. John McCain’s recent funeral.
That’s according to sources familiar with the funeral planning, The Washington Post reported – not that the anti-Trump networks, to include CNN and MSNBC, won’t fill the void.
The Bush family contacted the White House over the summer and said President Trump would be welcome at the senior Bush’s funeral and assured the president that the focus would be on Bush’s life rather than any disagreements between them, the paper noted, citing a former administration official.
A source said the tone of Wednesday’s funeral will reflect the sense of propriety of the 41st president, who “wouldn’t want anyone there to feel uncomfortable, including the incumbent president.”
A former Bush associate echoed that sentiment in talking with Politico.
“This will be about the celebration of the noble public service that George H.W. Bush gave,” the source said. “It’s not going to be about anybody else. I don’t think it’s going to be about Trump.”
