In the book she writes that she can "never forgive" Donald Trump for questioning her husband's United States citizenship, accusing him and other "birthers" of putting her family at risk.

"The 41st president died late Friday at his Houston home at age 94". Howard heads the Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region, the almost 4,000-strong military task force that is overseeing the funeral.

Bush will then be returned to Houston to lie in repose at St Martin's Episcopal church before burial on Thursday at his family plot on the library grounds.

Bush will lie in state in the Rotunda of the US Capitol from Monday evening Wednesday morning, under the watchful gaze of an around-the-clock honours guard. Details of public access are yet to be announced.

Retired Gen Colin Powell, who as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff was Bush's top military adviser, said Bush was the "perfect American" and should be remembered for "a life of quality, a life of honor, a life of honesty, a life of total concern for the American people".

He also ordered flags to half-staff for 30 days at the White House and other official sites, including public buildings and military posts, in Bush's honor and "and as an expression of public sorrow".

The casket will then be transported to the cathedral for the funeral service - the fourth there of a former president. At 5:15 p.m. ET, another ceremony and interment will be held.

The pair ended the night of good terms, though, with Durant gifting Drake his game-worn jersey after the game. He's that talented though, where if he starts to feel it, he can get any shot he wants pretty much any time .

A funeral mass will be held at the church at 10 a.m. local time on December 6 for invited guests.

The train is scheduled to arrive in College Station on Friday around 10:45am NZT.

The crew, who flew the plane to Houston on Sunday, have been tasked with carrying out "Special Air Mission 41", the number a reference to Bush's place in the roster of America's presidents.

He'll be continuing the tradition of sending a message with his socks on his final journey, too.

Bush is shown with his son George W. Bush, who would later become US president, and wife Barbara Bush in Rye, N.Y., in 1955.

Bush served two terms as vice president under fellow Republican President Ronald Reagan before his own stint in the Oval Office from 1989 to 1993.

Bush had been in and out of the hospital in recent years, primarily due to the Parkinson's disease that Baker said hampered his body's ability to get rid of phlegm, often causing pneumonia.

From former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to current heads of state, leaders praised Mr Bush both for his strength and his moderation, as well as the commitment to internationalism typified by his assembling of a global coalition to oust Iraqi invaders from Kuwait in 1991.
