The late former president George H.W. Bush passed away just before the start of the Christmas season. Melania Trump decided to lift his family’s spirits by inviting them to the White House after it had been decorated for the holiday season.


Every year before Christmas the White House is decorated for the holiday season. This year Melania was in charge of choosing the decorations, and her theme was “American Treasures.”

President Trump decided to invite former first lady Laura Bush and her family to the White House following the passing of her late father-in-law, George H.W. Bush.

Laura took her family on a White House tour, including a viewing of her father-in-law’s portrait. She took this opportunity for a photo opportunity with her 20 family members, which she posted on Instagram.


Laura Bush followed the tour by meeting her husband and former president George W. Bush outside the Blair House. Here they met with President Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump.

When asked what she thinks of Melania, Laura responded that she is a “wonderful representative for the United States."



President Trump has not always had the best things to say about the Bush family, as he has taken to Twitter and the podiums at rallies to express this. But in the wake of George H.W. Bush’s death protocol had to be followed.


Despite Trump’s negative comments in the past, he was invited to the Bush funeral as it is customary for the current president to be present at a state funeral. However, President Trump will not make a speech at the funeral.

Bush’s body is currently lying in state at the Capitol Rotunda, and a memorial service will be held at National Cathedral.
