USA politicians pay tribute to former United States president George HW Bush

USA politicians pay tribute to former United States president George HW Bush

In his 1988 acceptance speech for the Presidential nomination at the Republican National Convention in New Orleans, then-Vice President Bush cited the Order of AHEPA as one of the ˜Thousand Points of Light' that brighten and diversify America through a ˜Nation of Community.' We are thankful for his lasting commitment to service, the spirit of volunteerism and building stronger communities. "As president, he set the stage for the decades of prosperity that have followed".

His eldest son, George W. Bush, served as 43rd President, 2001-2009.

Prominent figures and fellow former presidents gave their statements on the passing of H.W. Bush, including Donald J. Trump, Barack Obama, former Vice President Al Gore, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton.

The president and first lady Melania Trump will attend the funeral at Washington National Cathedral, Sanders said.

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

Former President George Herbert Walker Bush, 41st president of the United States, has died at age 94.

"Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with the entire Bush family".

USA former presidents George Bush Senior (L) and Bill Clinton arrives in Phuket, south Thailand. Clinton defeated Bush in the 1992 election.

"You really felt like he did know you", she said.

Dukakis also praised Bush for working with other countries and the United Nations in the first Gulf War, calling him wise and thoughtful in worldwide affairs.

Heisman Trophy: Meet Kyler Murray and the other finalists
The Allen, Texas, product has completed 241 of 340 passes this year for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns to seven interceptions. Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has put together one of the greatest individual seasons in Sooners football history.

"Traveling overseas, I also came to appreciate the reputation Bush had built over many years", he wrote.

Lawmakers added their own messages of condolence.

The Queen also visited him in the U.S. in 1991 - the trip that led to "Podiumgate" - when all that could be seen of the Queen above the lectern when she was delivering an address on the White House lawn was her hat. "May it be a comfort to them to know that so many Americans mourn with them". "Courage, duty, honor, and compassion define our nation and his life".

World leaders past and present have been paying tribute to him and Theresa May said Bush's "ethos of public service was the guiding thread of his life and an example to us all". A year later, Bush "became an officer of the United States Naval Reserve and earned his wings as a naval aviator", the Post reported.

"The world has lost a great and decent man". His presence will be sorely missed.

In August 2015, Trump tweeted a dig at the presidency of George H.W. Bush, writing: "The last thing we need is another Bush in the White House". But he credits Bush with successfully negotiating with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. But he made clear what he thought of Trump.

While Mr Trump spoke graciously of Mr Bush, he has not always been so kind to the former president or his family.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Bush - who was USA president during the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall - "one of the fathers of German reunification, and we will never forget that".

"He was, in fact, the first American President that I was privileged to meet". As devoted as George was to our country, his true passion was his family.
