The White House says that's so Trump's security doesn't disturb anything and that it's "out of respect for the Bush Family and friends." But first lady Melania Trump plans to be there.
Donald Trump is hardly the first sitting president to skip a former first lady's memorial service. While in office, Barack Obama didn't go to services for Betty Ford or Nancy Reagan. And in 2007, George W. Bush wasn't at Lady Bird Johnson's funeral.
Barbara Bush, who was the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, died Tuesday at the age of 92.
Her funeral on Saturday in Houston is a private event. A public visitation is Friday.
