Mr. Bush was a decorated World War II fighter pilot who dedicated his life to public service as a congressman, ambassador, Central Intelligence Agency director, vice president and the 41st president, but the AP's tweet focused on his defeats.

President Trump will not be speaking at the funeral for President George H.W. Bush, it was reported Monday.

The other eulogists include former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, former Sen.

Jim McGrath, Bush's spokesman, posted an image of Sully next to Bush's casket on Sunday along with the caption, "Mission complete".

The former president got Sully through America's VetDogs over the summer, about two months after the death of former first lady Barbara Bush, his wife of 73 years.

Sitting presidents have eulogized the last three past presidents who have died.

The president's body will be interred at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Before that, Bill Clinton gave a eulogy for Richard Nixon after he died in April 1994. Instead, his body lay in state in Independence, Missouri.

Bush's funeral in Washington, D.C. will be at 11 a.m. on Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral.
