After the announcement of the former President George H.W Bush's death, many started wondering if the current president will attend the funeral.
The Bushes had previously shared their opinions regarding Trump, claiming that they voted for the other candidates in the 2016 election. In November 2017, Mark K. Updegrove , the writer of " The Last Republicans" quoted George H.W. Bush talking about Trump: "I don't like him... I'm not too excited about him being a leader." Trump has, as well, mocked the 41st president in July during a Montana rally, "What the hell was that, by the way, thousand points of light? What did that mean?" talking about one of the former president's slogan. Trump did not attend the funeral of former First-Lady Barbara Bush in April 2018.
