He opened by observing that in life, "the idea is to die young as late as possible", remembering his father's adventurous spirit.

"To us", the younger Bush said, "he was close to flawless". They were there to honor the life of a great man and former president.

Hillary Clinton, who fought a heated battle with Trump in the 2016 race, did not appear to turn to face Trump when he arrived, and her husband and Carter turned away while Trump and the Obamas shook hands.

Wilson, author of "Everything Trump Touches Dies", noted that Bush's late wife, Barbara Bush, had requested that Trump stay away from her memorial.
