Rosalynn and I are deeply saddened by the death of former President George H.W. Bush. "He and the First Lady will attend the funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.", the statement said. A state funeral is also being arranged.

Bush, who was president from 1989 to 1993, was 94. "He never stopped serving", Clinton said. "While our hearts are heavy today, they are also filled with gratitude", said former President Obama. It coincided with a swing in the nation as a whole toward more tribal politics. Clinton defeated Bush in the 1992 election.

"He always felt it represented his life", Gangel said. His administration was marked by grace, civility, and social conscience. Through his Points of Light initiative and other projects, he espoused a uniquely American volunteer spirit, fostering bipartisan support for citizen service and inspiring millions to embrace community volunteerism as a cherished responsibility.

"The President noted it was humanity's destiny to explore, and America's destiny to lead".

Lawmakers added their own messages of condolence. "We have the watch", the U.S. Navy posted on Twitter along with a photo of Bush in his Navy attire. "Courage, duty, honor, and compassion define our nation and his life". "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader". His rhetorical calling card as president was the concept of a "thousand points of light", meant to symbolize the power of individual citizens to better their communities through volunteer service. "He could be maddeningly self-effacing but that was part of the reason you loved him". He was an honorable, gracious and decent man who believed in the United States, our Constitution, our institutions and our shared future.

Despite years of deep animosity between Trump and the Bush family, who represent divergent brands of Republicanism, Trump showered praise on Bush's legacy as a World War II veteran and lifelong public servant. But he credits Bush with successfully negotiating with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. But he made clear what he thought of Trump.

Richard Haass, who served as special assistant to Bush and chief Middle East adviser, told NPR how the president "invested in relationships, he worked with allies".

Trump is scheduled to meet down Saturday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Chinese President Xi Jinping before returning to Washington.
