Presidents And Former Colleagues React To George H.W. Bush's Death

Presidents And Former Colleagues React To George H.W. Bush's Death

The nation's 41st president died late on Friday, November 30, 2018, at the age of 94 - about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush.

"President Bush is a personal hero of mine and a major inspiration in my life". He and first lady Melania Trump plan to attend Bush's funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

"President Bush's Space Exploration Initiative helped us to think big and long-term about space".

"The President noted it was humanity's destiny to explore, and America's destiny to lead".

Bush Sr was America's 41st president holding office between 1989 and 1993, and is credited with helping to end the Cold War.

In a statement, former President Bill Clinton described Bush's long record of service in the military, Congress, the Central Intelligence Agency and as president, where he served from 1989 to 1993.

The 41st president of the US served from 1989 to 1993 and watched his son, George W. Bush, win election as the 43rd president of the USA eight years later.

Mulroney said that among the two leaders' joint accomplishments, two stand out: the signing of the Canada-U.S. Air Quality Agreement, known as the acid rain treaty, in 1991; and the negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed in 1994 after both had left office.

That was a departure from Trump's comments at a Montana rally this past summer, where he mocked the "thousand points of light" phrase that Bush had famously used to describe the volunteer spirit of Americans.

"The world has lost a great and decent man". As devoted as George was to our country, his true passion was his family.

"Former President George HW Bush was passionate about strong relations between India and USA. Since George's mother called Grandfather Walker "Pop, ' she began calling her son, his namesake, 'little Pop, ' or 'Poppy" Hence, Poppy Bush is the name the President's family friends have called him since his youth", the book says. Mr Bush passed away in Houston, from causes not yet officially disclosed.
