'It's Really Heartbreaking': Dana Perino, Brit Hume Remember George H.W. Bush

Wednesday will be a day of mourning in Texas and across the nation as Americans will honor the late President George H.W. Bush.

Trump, who upended the GOP establishment with his insurgent presidential campaign, has had a fractious relationship with the Bush family over the years.

Former Presidential candidate Michael Dukakis attends the HBO Documentary Films premiere of "Addiction" at the Hammer Museum on March 12, 2007 in Westwood, California.

The stock exchange will observe a moment of silence on Monday "and plans to be closed on December 5, the national day of mourning designated by President Trump", Nasdaq spokesman Will Briganti said.

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

The president will be honored with a state funeral on Wednesday.

"Ahepans mourn the passing of President George H.W. Bush".

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 President George H.W. Bush will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda next week.

"Former President George HW Bush was passionate about strong relations between India and USA".

"Through his essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service - to be, in his words, "a thousand points of light" illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world", Trump wrote.

He added, "President Bush always found a way to set the bar higher".

Bush restrained himself from entering the political fray with Trump and weighing in on the 45th president's daily - and sometimes hourly - news cycles.

"Traveling overseas, I also came to appreciate the reputation Bush had built over many years", he wrote.
