MORE DETAILS TO COME

The details surrounding the funeral service are yet to be determined but, just like the Trumps, several other big names in the political world are expected to make an appearance at the ceremony.

"Obama defined Bush's life as 'a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling."

According to Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, the President and the First Lady learned of Bush's passing that very same night.

It has been reported that Trump will be meeting with the 94-year-old's son, also a former President of the United States, George W. Bush this Saturday, in order to offer his condolences.

THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL FUNERAL

Sanders also announced that the funeral will have all the support and honors it deserves and that Wednesday, December 5, will be a day to mourn Bush, who was in office from 1989 to 1993.

The last presidential funeral took place 12 years ago when Gerald Ford died of arteriosclerotic cerebrovascular disease and diffuse arteriosclerosis at his home in Rancho Mirage, California.

WORDS OF COMFORT

As soon as Bush's death was made public, several political personalities, such as Barack Obama and Vice President Mike Pence, shared a few words about the former American leader.

Obama defined Bush's life as 'a testament to the notion that public service is a noble, joyous calling,' while Pence stated that Bush's 'lifetime of service will be enshrined in the hearts of the American people forever.'
