Donald Trump reportedly arrived back home before the casket of George H W Bush left cathedral grounds after his funeral service.


On Wednesday, the service for the 41st president of the United States, George H W Bush, was held at the Washington National Cathedral.

After the service, Trump and the first lady followed Bush's surviving family out. According to the Daily Mail, the casket was not yet in its hearse when Trump exited the church grounds.

The first couple followed the procession out at about 1:15 p.m. By 1:25, they were already back home in the White House. This extremely quick departure has brought up some theories.

Some are suggesting that Trump left quickly so as to avoid speaking to former president Barack Obama. Many others think it was to cut off any interaction between himself and the 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton.


Indeed, the media could not ignore Clinton's resolute stare as Trump and his wife arrived at the cathedral. Trump sat only three seats away from Hillary and former president Bill Clinton.

Yet the two didn't shake hands. Trump only shook the hands of the Obamas. Melania greeted both the Obamas and Bill Clinton, not Hillary. The tension was further felt as the group remained silent during the event.


Trump, who has criticized the Bush family's policies, needed reassurance before attending the event. He was guaranteed that there would be no criticism of his administration at the memorial.


This followed some bashing that Trump received from McCain's family when they buried the late Senator John McCain. Trump did not attend that event but made sure to secure respect at the one on Wednesday.

The eulogies and speeches focused only on the memory of Bush who was 94 when he passed last Friday.

Bush's eldest son, George W Bush, was shaken up during his tribute. He called his lost loved one the "best father a son or daughter could have."

After departing from the church, the Bush family proceeded to Joint Base Andrews and then to Houston in the presidential plane. Bush is to be buried alongside his late wife Barbara and his daughter Robin who died in 1953.
