Tributes have begun to pour in for former President George H.W. Bush, who died Friday at the age of 94. He ran against one of Bush's sons, Jeb Bush, in the GOP presidential primaries in 2016, and was sharply critical of the two-term presidency of another, George W. Bush.

In a 2006 interview with CNN's Larry King on "Larry King Live", Bush, who flew combat missions in World War II, read part of a letter he wrote his five children before the start of the Gulf War in which he discussed the phrase. However, AHEPA will always remember him for making the call to public and community service a centerpiece of his life.

Trump did not attend the last major funeral in Washington, that of former Sen. "May his memory be eternal".

Trump's words of admiration for George H.W. Bush cap more than three years of hostility between the current president and the Bush family.

Rosalynn and I are deeply saddened by the death of former President George H.W. Bush. The NYSE will also observe a minute of silence on Monday to honor the late former president. His administration was marked by grace, civility, and social conscience. The Democrat added that through the Points of Light initiative that Bush founded, which promotes volunteerism, he embraced "a uniquely American volunteer spirit" and bipartisan support.


"The President will designate Wednesday, December 5th as a National Day of Mourning".

"The President noted it was humanity's destiny to explore, and America's destiny to lead". 'Thousand points of light?' I never got that one.

President Bill Clinton, the U.S. Navy and French head of state Emmanuel Macron, among others, offered their condolences, as well. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader".

"President Bush's Space Exploration Initiative helped us to think big and long-term about space". But he made clear what he thought of Trump.
