The current and former US presidents have been offering their condolences and paying tribute to the 41st president, George Herbert Walker Bush, who died Fridaynight at his Houston home.
In an interview with NPR, Colin Powell, who served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Bush, called the former commander in chief "the most qualified president to take over that office in our history". President Donald Trump is expected to attend.
The stock exchange will observe a moment of silence on Monday "and plans to be closed on December 5, the national day of mourning designated by President Trump", Nasdaq spokesman Will Briganti said. He would later serve as an unofficial ambassador to China and director of the Central Intelligence Agency before first running for president in 1980, when he was defeated in the primary race by Ronald Reagan, who would later select Bush as his vice president. During the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, Trump mercilessly mocked one of Bush's sons, Jeb Bush, as "low energy", and attacked the policies of another of his sons, George W. Bush.
Trump also announced that he has authorized the use of the iconic Boeing 747 presidential aircraft, known as Air Force One whenever a president is on board, to transport Bush's remains to Washington - a customary honor for a former president.
The Trumps were informed of Mr Bush's death at the age 94 late on Friday while in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the Group of 20 summit of rich and developing nations. He contrasted it with his own campaign slogan, saying "Putting America first, we understand".
"President Bush exemplified a lifetime of service to America as a World War Two combat pilot and during his tenure in public service".
Bush restrained himself from entering the political fray with Trump and weighing in on the 45th president's daily - and sometimes hourly - news cycles.
He added, "President Bush always found a way to set the bar higher". I know what he would say: "Nonsense".
