Read The Gracious, Humble Note George H.W. Bush Left In Oval Office For Bill Clinton
03 December, 2018, 06:34
"Melania and I join with a grieving Nation to mourn the loss of former President George H.W. Bush, who passed away last night", President Trump wrote in a statement following the news.
From there, Bush's casket will travel to Washington on board Trump's presidential aircraft - in what the USA leader called "a special tribute that he deserves very much". I know you will feel that, too. For those who want to pay their respects, the Bush family requested that donations be made to the George Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University to "help ensure that President Bush's legacy of public service with integrity is perpetuated".
Short yet intimate, the note left in the Oval Office from vanquished to victor seeded a friendship that flowered in the decades since, to a point where Bill Clinton said upon Bush's death Friday: "I just loved him". "Partly it was a great team with the president as commander in chief, Brent Scowcroft, national security adviser, Jim [Baker], the secretary of state and myself", he said. President Donald Trump, who did not attend First Lady Barbara Bush's funeral in April, said he will attend the ceremony for the former president. "I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described", Bush continued in a somewhat heartfelt manner - an exchange hardly expected between two presidents in today's highly divisive political environment in the United States.
I wish you great happiness here.
