Hours after reports broke that George H.W. Bush had passed away on Friday, Nov. 30, Donald Trump is sharing his condolences by reflecting on the late president’s tenure in the White House. Despite the pair’s public feud, Donald Trump’s statement after George H.W. Bush’s death applauded his leadership, and his praise of Bush’s “essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country” shows he will be missed.
In an official White House statement from him and wife Melania, President Trump began, “Melania and I join with a grieving Nation to mourn the loss of former President George H.W. Bush, who passed away last night. Through his essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service — to be, in his words, ‘a thousand points of light’ illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world.’
More to come.
