President Donald Trump designated Wednesday as a national day of mourning, the White House said. "It will then be reset and it will be sent to Houston to pick up the casket of President Bush and it will be sent back to Washington", Trump said, according to the report.

Bush senior is the father of George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the US.
