Laura Bush Says “Thanks” To Melania For Warm & Thoughtful Gesture

Love to see this


Melania Trump takes class to another level.

Despite the fact that the Bush family has not always been kind to President Trump, the Trumps have been extremely gracious to the Bush family.

And Melania just extended a very gracious offer for them to visit the White House for a special tour of the holiday decorations.

The announcement came from President Trump:

Here's more, from CNN:

Melania Trump is hosting former first lady Laura Bush at the White House on Tuesday for a special tour of the holiday decorations. 

Bush is in Washington for memorial services honoring former President George H.W. Bush, whose body is lying in state at the Capitol rotunda ahead of private services Wednesday at National Cathedral.

Laura Bush's visit to the White House was announced via a tweet from President Donald Trump.

"Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today. The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!"

Bush later posted on her Instagram her "thanks" to Melania Trump. Several Bush family members took the special tour, including her sister-in-law Doro Bush and several of Bush Sr.'s grandchildren. 

Additionally, Laura Bush posted a picture posing with White House staff members whom she called her "old friends."

The current first lady and the former first lady have a friendly relationship. Last year, Bush told CNN's Brooke Baldwin in an interview that she had visited with Melania Trump. 

"I've talked to Melania," she said. "I've been back and had tea with her." Bush added she thinks Trump has "done a lovely job" as first lady and that she is a "wonderful representative for the United States."

In April, following the death of former first lady Barbara Bush, Trump attended the memorial service in Houston and brought with her from Washington two longtime White House staff members who worked with the Bush family, a gesture the family greatly appreciated. 

"(Mrs. Trump) knew they were very close to the Bush family and wanted them to be able to pay their respects," Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN at the time.

Conversely, Melania Trump has not had the same warm rapport with her immediate predecessor, former first lady Michelle Obama. Barbara Bush's funeral in Houston was the first time the two women had seen each other since Trump's inauguration and Obama shared in an interview last month that Trump had not sought her advice or guidance. 

"I know that Laura Bush reached out to you and said, 'If you need any help, I'm a phone call away,' " ABC News' Robin Roberts said to Obama. "You wrote (in your memoir 'Becoming,') how and have talked about how you extended that same courtesy to Melania Trump. Has she reached out and asked for any help?"

And from the WashingtonPost:

Former first lady Laura Bush on Tuesday had a chance to visit the place she once called home, as first lady Melania Trump gave her a tour of the White House holiday decorations.

Bush was in town, of course, for memorial services for her father-in-law, former president George H.W. Bush, who died Friday. The 41st president is currently lying in state in the Capitol building before services at Washington National Cathedral on Wednesday.

President Trump expressed his pleasure at hosting the Bush family, including former president George W. Bush and Laura Bush, at Blair House, the presidential guesthouse near the White House where visiting heads of state and other VIP visitors can lay their heads while in Washington.

"Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today," he tweeted Tuesday. "The former First Lady will be coming over to the White House this morning to be given a tour of the Christmas decorations by Melania. The elegance & precision of the last two days have been remarkable!"

After the tour, Bush shared photos of her homecoming of sorts.

First families often bond with the residence staff, the coterie of chefs, butlers and cleaning staff responsible for caring for them and for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The first lady and Mrs. Bush have a warm relationship: The pair have shared tea at the White House and spent time together when Trump traveled to Texas for the funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush in April.
