President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were among the mourners to visit the remains of the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, while he lies in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda this week.
The pair arrived hand-in-hand as they bowed their heads in prayer with the commander-in-chief also saluting Bush’s casket before leaving. The visit by the Trumps was a total of 75 seconds, according to CNN.
Bush’s body will remain on the Lincoln Catafalque in the Rotunda through 7 a.m. EST Wednesday, which will stay open to accommodate public mourners.
Bush died late on Friday night at age 94. His spokesperson Jim McGrath confirmed the news, writing in a statement, “George Herbert Walker Bush, World War II naval aviator, Texas oil pioneer, and 41st President of the United States of America, died on November 30, 2018. He was 94 and is survived by his five children and their spouses, 17 grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and two siblings.”
“He was preceded in death by his wife of 73 years, Barbara; his second child Pauline ‘Robin’ Bush; and his brothers Prescott and William or ‘Bucky’ Bush.”
