Trump Pays Tribute to Bush Sr.

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump paid tribute early Saturday to former President George H.W. Bush following his death, saying that he guided the nation and the world to a victorious end to the Cold War.

“With sound judgment, common sense, and unflappable leadership, President Bush guided our nation, and the world, to a peaceful and victorious conclusion of the Cold War,” Trump said in a joint statement with his wife, First Lady Melania Trump.

“As President, he set the stage for the decades of prosperity that have followed,” he added.

Trump said that Bush would be remembered for “his devotion to family-especially the love of his life, Barbara.”

“His example lives on, and will continue to stir future Americans to pursue a greater cause,” he added.

The Trumps, who are in Buenos Aires for the G20 summit, expressed their sadness over the loss that has left a nation in mourning.

Bush Sr. died on Friday at the age of 94, eight months after the death of his spouse, former First Lady Barbara Bush, to whom he was married for 73 years.

In 2016, despite persistent health problems, Bush expressed his disapproval of Trump during the presidential elections and, according to several leaks, he voted for Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.
