President Donald Trump went in person on Tuesday (Dec 4) to pay his respects to the grieving Bush family in his latest show of peacemaking with the political clan he once fought bitterly.

The New York Stock Exchange, as well as the NASDAQ, also will close Wednesday after Trump called for Americans to remember the vast contributions of the 41st president, who died Friday at age 94.

The United States Postal Service announced Monday that it will only provide limited package delivery.

"I do know from the Bush family that they are very appreciative and think the White House has just bent over backwards, gone to great lengths, been extraordinarily helpful", Gangel continued.
