President Trump exchanged greetings with his predecessor Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama after arriving at George H.W. Bush s funeral Wednesday, but there was a noticeable lack of warmth between the commander-in-chief and the woman he defeated to win the White House.
Bushs funeral brought together all of the living former presidents Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter as well as Trump and first lady Melania Trump.
The pair was seated in the front row of the Washington National Cathedral next to the Obamas. Trump shook hands with Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, who greeted him by saying, "Good morning," before he took his seat. Melania Trump also shook hands with the Obamas and Bill Clinton and nodded at Hillary Clinton.
But neither President Trump nor the Clintons appeared to acknowledge one another when the president arrived. Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, stared straight ahead while former President Bill Clinton glanced over.
Trump and Hillary Clinton vociferously clashed throughout their 2016 presidential campaigns and their feud has continued into Trumps presidency.
Carter is seated at the end of the row, next to Hillary Clinton.
When George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush arrived at the cathedral, the family greeted the Trumps, all of the former presidents and their wives.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump said he was looking forward to being with the Bush family.

In other news Hillary Clinton still lost the election for President despite the fix being “in.”
If I ever got that close to either of them I’d feel an all consuming urge to shower with a wire brush and lye soap afterward.
Hey, less germs. I wouldn’t shake their hands either.
The only time I’d be tempted to touch those two grifter maggots would be after their conviction and my assignment as the hangman.
(a task for which no pay would be asked)
lock her up.
Hillary probably couldn’t see him. LOL
A rare moment of honesty. Being physically near the Clintons is a repulsive experience for any decent person. Why would Trump wish to hold their hands?
Bill looked open to it, but it really wasn’t that convenient.
It’s pretty obvious who’s behind the “Russian Collusion” BS.....
Both need to be in hell....soon.
Hillary has that Parkinson’s head bob going on at the end.
lolol at that gif. Have we ever figured out what Hillary is suffering from? Besides the frequent firmware updates from satan?
HRC should thank her lucky stars that President Trump does not ORDER her immediate arrest . Obama too .
Personally , I wish he would .
America needs to see these deeply deceitful coup plotters held accountable and brought to justice . To just let them off the hook would be a great pity .
Trump should crush them both . Make an example of them , for future politicians to take note and ever remember .
Hillary had the look of intense hatred on her face. Just what you’d expect from someone so consumed by evil.
Hang both Clintons, both Obamas, add Jimmy Carter the Iran punk, and DO NOT FORGET Bushes are trash. War hero Bush my ass.
President Trump touched neither one .... germaphobe, y'kmow.
I feel sorry for Melania having to sit next to the POSObama.
In stern reality; he surely feels the futility of acting chummy now, knowing that in a short while one or both Clintons will hang from nooses. Obama will, too; but Trump could scarecely refuse that handshake, being that close to him.
