Former first lady Laura Bush touched by Melania Trump’s invitation to White House for Bush clan

A day before the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush, first lady Melania Trump invited former first lady Laura Bush and a crowd of Bush relatives to the White House, then later joined President Donald Trump in a condolence visit to the Bushes at Blair House in a rapprochement of sorts for two rival clans.

Trump invited the former FLOTUS and a host of Bush children and grandchildren to see the much-mocked Christmas decorations at the White House on Tuesday morning, but the visit was private and no photographers or reporters were present, said Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

But later, Laura Bush posted pictures on Instagram of a crowd of Bushes gathered round under the White House portrait of the 41st president, which was draped in black cloth.

“A sweet visit during this somber week,” she wrote in the caption. “Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff.”
