The late Mr Bush called Mr Trump a "blowhard".

In an invocation opening proceedings, the US House chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J Conroy, praised Mr Bush's commitment to public service, from Navy pilot to congressman, United Nations ambassador, envoy to China and then Central Intelligence Agency director before being elected vice-president and then president - the first incumbent to do so in over 100 years.
