Kirsters Baish| As we are all aware, former President George H.W. Bush passed away on Friday at the age of 94. When his passing was announced, it was said that “he would lie in state at the Capitol Rotunda in Washington from Monday until Wednesday, when a state funeral service would be held at the National Cathedral in his honor.”
While the former President’s extended family was visiting Washing, D.C. for the memorial services, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump graciously hosted them.
While the mainstream media wants us to believe that President Trump and Mrs. Trump are mean-spirited people, who the Bush family hates, this isn’t the case.
Conservative Tribune explains that the “Trump family not only met with the Bush family in the nearby Blair House on Tuesday, but the current first lady also gave the former first lady a personal tour of the White House Christmas decorations.”
Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today. The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!

Trump sent out in a tweet early on Tuesday morning, “Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today. The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!”
It was reported by ABC News that the Bush family and the Trump family warmly greeted each other at the presidental guest house’s entrance. This is also where the Bush family will be staying during their trip to Washington, D.C.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The visit to personally offer condolences to the Bush family was brief — only about 22 minutes — and reportedly was the first public interaction between Trump and Bush since Inauguration Day in January 2017. Trump notably declined to answer questions shouted at him by reporters as he left the meeting.
ABC also reported that an unnamed “person familiar with the arrangements” said the Bush family and Trump’s White House had been in “close contact” with each other as soon as the 41st president died, making plans for the funeral and memorial and signifying a thaw — if only temporary — in the feud between the two families that arose from the 2016 election.
In the meantime, following the meeting, which was held at the Blair House, former First Lady Laura Bush among with multiple of her late father-in-law’s grandchildren made their way to the White House in order to get a tour of this year’s Christmas decorations that were chosen by Melania Trump.
Bush posted on Instagram a photo of the visit along with the caption, “A sweet visit during this somber week. Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff.”
Melania Trump was her same gracious self as she always is, but liberals who hate her can’t seem to get over the way she decorated the White House this year for Christmas.
Conservative Tribune explains:
The decorations that received a wealth of criticism were the bright red trees that lined the hallways. Of those criticisms, Melania Trump said, “We are in the 21st century and everybody has a different taste. I think they look fantastic.”
She further explained the red trees were part of a broader patriotic theme, and said, “This is representing — you could see the color red. It represents the bravery, heart and patriotism. So here we go to the East Room, but it’s decorated blue, and then we will see later on the State Room. And here we are, this is red, blue, and white, and it’s patriotic and it reminds us of (the) American flag.”
Were the Trumps truly as bad as the media have implied, and if the feud between the Bush and Trump families were truly as deep-seated as has been insinuated, the Trumps likely would not have visited the Bushes at Blair House, or the Bushes would have declined to accept the visit as well as the invitation to view the White House Christmas decorations.
