President Donald Trump is receiving backlash for a sudden announcement of a cancelled meeting with leaders of the Taliban, a violent and fundamentalist political movement, at Camp David during the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The peace talks were aimed at ending the years long conflict in Afghanistan, but were called off after the Taliban—which sheltered Osama Bin Laden for years and championed political violence against the United States—claimed credit for an attack in Kabul that left 12 people, including an American soldier, dead.

President George W. and First Lady Laura Bush greeted the Trumps at Blair House Tuesday and as they entered the National Cathedral on Wednesday for his father's funeral services.

As is standard custom for state funerals, the family of former President George H.W. Bush stayed at the Blair House—also known as the President's Guest House—in Washington D.C. while the family patriarch lies in state at the Capitol Rotunda. The Blair House is made up of four separate homes combined into one large guest accomodation for visiting dignitaries.

The Blair house sits kitty corner across the street from the White House, which prompted the United States government to purchase the four houses—Blair House, Lee House, Peter Parker House, and 704 Jackson Place—beginning in 1942 and merge them into one facility in the 1980s.
