Former First Lady Laura Bush and Bush family members were hosted by First Lady Melania Trump at the White House earlier this week, touring the 2018 White House Christmas decorations.
Mrs. Bush was quick to thank Melania for the “sweet visit during this somber week.”
“Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff,” wrote Laura Bush, posting two photos from the visit.
One of the photos uploaded on her Instagram page featured a gathering of Bushes in front of a White House portrait of the late George H.W. Bush.
“Looking forward to being with the wonderful Bush family at Blair House today,” President Donald Trump posted in preparation for the visit. “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!”

Mrs. Bush and Mrs. Trump have a great relationship.
In April, the former first lady and the current first lady shared a tea together at the White House. Additionally, Laura had nothing but warm wishes and kind words to say about Melania during an interview with CNN in November 2017.
“I just think she’s done a lovely job,” Mrs. Bush said of Mrs. Trump. “She’s a beautiful woman. She’s a wonderful representative for the United States.”
