Friends and family gathered at Washington National Cathedral in D.C. for a funeral service honoring late former president George H.W. Bush.

Wednesday was designated a national day of mourning, with many closings across America. It is also bringing together world envoys, the four remaining ex-presidents, and President Trump.

So whether it's these instances, or Trump shaking hands with the Obamas but notthe Clintons, you can decided if you agree with the viewer who thinks Trump was simply: "opting not to participate in the service".

But the former president might not have expected such honor.

The closure was announced by President Donald Trump.
