First lady Melania Trump will attend the funeral for Barbara Bush in Texas on Saturday. “Mrs. Trump plans to pay her respects at the funeral on Saturday,” her communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN. Bush, the matriarch of a Republican political dynasty and a first lady who elevated the cause of literacy, died Tuesday. She was 92.
The White House had not yet said if Trump himself will attend. His schedule currently has him at Mar-A-Lago through Sunday. We won’t be surprised if he’s on the golf course there during the service.
