DONALD Trump has snubbed Hilary and Bill Clinton in his awkward arrival at George HW Bush’s funeral.

Trump arrived at the funeral with his wife Melania, who greeted the Obamas, shook hands with Bill Clinton and waved at Hilary Clinton.

After handing his coat over, Trump sat down and shook hand with Barack and Michelle Obama before snubbing the Clintons.

The body of Mr Bush, which had been lying in state at the US Capitol, was moved to the National Cathedral for the funeral.

His son, ex-President George W Bush, is to deliver one of the eulogies.

Mr Bush senior, who served as the 41st US president between 1989 and 1993, died on Friday at the age of 94.

He will be buried in his home state of Texas, alongside his wife Barbara.

The US President’s awkward exchange came after Trump tweeted about oil prices as mourners gathered in Washington for the funeral.

Trump said he hoped the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, which is meeting on Thursday, would “be keeping oil flows as is, not restricted”.

He added: “The World does not want to see, or need, higher oil prices!”

The Twitter post came as dignitaries began to arrive at Washington’s National Cathedral for former president Mr Bush’s funeral on Wednesday afternoon.

In an earlier tweet, Mr Trump said he was “looking forward to being with the Bush family” at the service, scheduled to begin at 11am local time.

He added: “This is not a funeral, this is a day of celebration for a great man who has led a long and distinguished life. He will be missed!”
