A crowd of about 300 invited guests, including Astros manager A.J. Hinch, has greeted the arrival of a plane carrying former President George H.W. Bush's remains to Texas. A group of six of the world's most influential people sat side-by-side today, but the tension was seen on some of their faces as the camera panned on the group.

President Donald Trump has also announced that Wednesday is a national day of mourning.

Dole, 95, once faced Bush during the 1988 Republican primary fight for the presidential nomination but nonetheless maintained a decades-old friendship with the former president.

Trump has said some rather negative things about the Clintons and the Obamas in the past.

Melania Trump shook former President Barack Obama's hand, then that of former first lady Michelle Obama, and then Former President Bill Clinton before waving to former first lady Hillary Clinton and the Carters who were all seated too far for her to reach. A short time later, the hearse left for St. Martin's Episcopal Church, where the former president will lie in response overnight ahead of funeral services Thursday morning.

The lines of mourners have been steady since the president's casket was brought to Washington Monday.

She saw that he was handing one to former first lady Laura Bush and asked for one as well.
