Solemn public pays tribute to Bush before dawn in Rotunda

Along with Donald Trump and Melania Trump, former United States presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were seated in the first row of the Washington National Cathedral along with their spouses when Bush, the 43rd president took a moment to shake each of their hands.

Some national parks may be closed or have limited services to visitors.

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

Another photo shared Monday showed Sully with Bush family members before the president's casket was taken to Ellington Air Force Base.

Bush will be commemorated at a service at the National Cathedral Wednesday morning before being laid to rest Friday in Texas.

People filed into the Capitol throughout the chilly, overcast day to pay respects to the 41st president, a son and father of privilege now celebrated by everyday citizens for his common courtesies and depth of experience.

The Kansas Republican, 95, who like Bush was a decorated veteran from his service in World War II, was the Republican presidential nominee in 1996 against President Clinton. They paused steps from Bush's casket for a minute, with Trump saluting and Melania Trump placing her hand over her heart, before they quietly walked away.




Though the pair were only together for a short time - Sully was given to Bush in June after the passing of his wife, Barbara - it's evident from the dog's emotive state in the photo that they had developed a strong bond over their six months together.

Trump has often aimed political taunts at the Bush family, long a symbol of the traditional, more moderate wing of the U.S. Republican party that often is at odds with Trump's populist supporters. Here's more on just how well the Prince of Wales actually knew George H.W. Bush.

The president, while releasing funds for treatment and creating disability legislation that forbade discrimination against those living with the disease, was widely criticised for telling those at risk of AIDS to "change their behaviour". He had joined the Navy when he turned 18.

"And as you look at the service that Sully provided to the president, we have great pride, but we are very sad as well", Miller said.

Mr 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 two-and-a-half years. He served in Congress, as ambassador to the United Nations, chaired the Republican National Committee, was an envoy to China, director of the Central Intelligence Agency and vice president before being elected president in 1988.

He was denied a second term by Bill Clinton, who would later become a close friend.
