A bicameral arrival ceremony will be held for President Bush on Monday, December 3 at 5:00 p.m. ET. He praised the elder Bush, who died Friday, as "a high-quality man who truly loved his family". He encouraged Americans to gather in places of worship "to pay homage" to Mr Bush's memory, adding: "I invite the people of the world who share our grief to join us in this solemn observance".

Bush served as president from 1989-1993, entering office during a period of global upheaval.

Trump was notified overnight here of Bush's passing and was planning to speak by phone with the late president's son, former President George W. Bush, to offer condolences, according to a statement from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. "And, I would argue, set the best example for how to conduct yourself in the post-presidency".

Former President Barack Obama said, "America has lost a patriot and humble servant" and described the "tremendous good" Bush accomplished in his life - from helping new immigrants to reducing nuclear weapons and "ending the Cold War without firing a shot".

He also credited Bush, who died Friday night at age 94, with working with other countries and the United Nations in the first Gulf War.

He was also in office as president at the time Estonia became independent, and was instrumental in overseeing relations with the Soviet Union and its successor states during that time. "We are grateful for his commitment to patriotism and public service".

While Mr Trump spoke graciously of Mr Bush, he has not always been so kind to the former president or his family.

Trump, the 45th president, paid tribute to "the life and legacy of 41". But he made clear what he thought of Trump. He was a compassionate American president and respected global leader. "Since George's mother called Grandfather Walker "Pop, ' she began calling her son, his namesake, 'little Pop, ' or 'Poppy" Hence, Poppy Bush is the name the President's family friends have called him since his youth", the book says.
