President George H.W. Bush Has Passed Away

George H. W. Bush, the 41st US president, dies Former US President George Bush dies at age 94, family spokesman says

Bush's grandsons highlighted the 41st president's service to the military and the country, while Trump administration officials wrote heartfelt messages to the Bush family.

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway tweeted: "Heartfelt sympathy and deep condolences to the entire Bush family on the passing of our 41st President, George HW Bush".

Bush was the father to former President George W. Bush and to Florida governor Jeb Bush.

Bush violated his no-new-taxes promise in the second year of his term, cutting a deficit-reduction deal that angered many congressional Republicans and contributed to GOP losses in the 1990 midterm elections.

Remarkably, Bush developed a late passion for skydiving, jumping to celebrate his 85th birthday in 2009 and the opening of his presidential library in 2007.

President Donald Trump said George HW Bush "set the stage for the decades of prosperity" following his years in power. They had been married for 73 years.

Son of a senator, father of a president, Bush was the man with the golden resume who rose through the political ranks, from congressman to United Nations ambassador, Republican Party chairman to envoy to China, CIA director to two-term vice president under the hugely popular Ronald Reagan.

"[He] was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for".

The one-term Republican president, who served from 1989 to 1993, had been admitted to...

He was appointed by President Richard Nixon as ambassador to the United Nations and then, with Nixon embroiled in the Watergate scandal that would lead to his resignation, as chairman of the Republican National Committee, tasked with limiting the damage to the party.

He had spent every summer in the seaside town since childhood, except during World War II while he was a naval aviator. She died on April 17, 2018.

Bush did not endorse fellow Republican Trump, the eventual victor of the 2016 presidential election, who attacked both Jeb and George W. Bush during his campaign.

His failed 1980 presidential ended in his tenure as Reagan's vice president.

After Iraq invaded Kuwait in August 1990, Bush quickly began building an worldwide military coalition that included other Arab states.

"I have often told my children, 'If you want a role model in your life ― look to President George Herbert Walker Bush".

Tributes quickly poured in for the former U.S. leader, a decorated war pilot and onetime Central Intelligence Agency chief who also saw his son George follow in his footsteps to the Oval Office. "Our thoughts are with the entire Bush family tonight - and all who were inspired by George and Barbara's example".

At a summit meeting in Malta in December 1989, Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev, his Soviet counterpart, declared an end to the Cold War and talked of a new era of "lasting peace".

Serving in the Second World War as a Navy pilot, he was shot down in the Pacific in 1994.
