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 praised the "unselfish spirit" that motivated Bush's public service and the humility he retained even while he occupied the nation's highest office. "May his legacy inspire all of us to work toward a kinder and gentler nation, and may our thoughts and prayers bring comfort to his family".

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

Former President Barack Obama said, "America has lost a patriot and humble servant" and described the "tremendous good" Bush accomplished in his life - from helping new immigrants to reducing nuclear weapons and "ending the Cold War without firing a shot". They will also observe a moment of silence on Monday. The national day of mourning is meant to "pay homage to the memory" of the 41st president.

Last season, the outfielder hit.296 with 47 RBI and 10 home runs in 51 games with the Sooners. They are both finalists for the Heisman, along with Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins .

He adds: "However, out of respect for the Bush Family and former President George H.W. Bush we will wait until after the funeral to have a press conference". "'Putting America First" we understand. "Thousand points of light, I never quite got that one".

The White House said Saturday President Donald Trump would declare December 5th a national day of mourning for the country's 41st president. "And, I would argue, set the best example for how to conduct yourself in the post-presidency". Would be the same old thing (remember "read my lips, no more taxes").

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".
