Meanwhile Missoula, Montana, on Monday night, former Vice President Joe Biden, said he is the "most qualified person" to be president, CNN reports. They stood in front of the casket with their eyes closed for a few moments, before Trump saluted the casket. They exited the rotunda with little fanfare.

Then-president Bush and his Soviet counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev hold a news conference in Moscow in 1991.

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

Jenna Bush Hager, the former president's granddaughter, later explained that a "point of light was a vision about serving others, one that lit up our country, one I hope our country hasn't lost".

The Trump White House has accommodated all the Bush family's requests for the state funeral.

He became a multi-millionaire in the oil industry, and was a decorated World War II fighter pilot and a former head of the Central Intelligence Agency before entering the White House in 1988.

A photo of the two-year-old yellow lab lying next to Bush's American flag-draped casket went viral on Sunday, and subsequent investigations into Sully confirmed that he is ridiculously loyal and sweet.

The former president, who had a form of Parkinson's disease, received Sully in June to help with daily tasks such as opening doors, picking up items and calling for help, according to the Associated Press.

"He kept us flying high and challenged us to fly higher still".

Trump directed the presidential plane - called Air Force One when the sitting President is aboard - to pick up Bush's casket and transport it to Washington.

The pair entered the Capitol Rotunda, where Bush will lie in state until Wednesday morning, at 8:30 p.m. Just three months earlier, the honor was accorded to senator John McCain, a former Republican presidential nominee who died of brain cancer.

Christy Smith paused over the weekend to pay her respects to the late president at a bronze statue of him at a Houston park. Bush enrolled at Yale University after military service, becoming a scholar-athlete and captaining the baseball team to two College World Series before graduating Phi Beta Kappa after just 2½ years.

Whenever a president dies, all current and living presidents typically attend the funeral, as well as their partners.

The 41st president died Friday at the age of 94.

Released on November 13, Obama's memoir, Becoming, sold more than two million copies in North America in its first 15 days. But, like any American politician, Bush also endured-and dished out-and the kind of vicious mockery that came with the profession long before the Donald's unhinged age.

In much the same way, Bush Senior's defeat by Bill Clinton in the "it's the economy, stupid" election of 1992 has gone down in history as the necessary downfall of a detached oligarch at the hands of a sax-happy Baby Boomer.
