White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday has been designated as a national day of mourning, and that the White House flags have already been lowered to half staff to honor Bush.

The 41st USA president's body is scheduled to lie in state there from Monday to Wednesday.

"If [lawmakers] come, which they have, to talk about an extension because of President Bush's passing, I would absolutely consider it and probably give it", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One Saturday.
