Former President George W. Bush and his wife greeted the Trumps outside before everyone went in for the private, 20-minute visit.

On Saturday, he reflected on their relationship, telling CNN's Ana Cabrera that his passing was an end of an era, as Bush was the last World War II veteran to serve as president.

Bush will lie in state until Wednesday morning.

On Sunday, students, staff and visitors had flocked to George HW Bush's presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University, with thousands of mourners paying their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a nearby pond and others contributing to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at both the library and a park in downtown Houston. Among them was the former US President's prominent friend - Sully, his service dog.

The images come just days after Sully's Instagram account shared a photo of the visibly sad pup in front of Bush's casket.
