Trump also closed government offices Wednesday and designated it as a national day of mourning, which traditionally occurs on the same day as the Washington component of a late president's state funeral.

"President Bush's Space Exploration Initiative helped us to think big and long-term about space".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted, "I am deeply grateful to his family for having shared such a wonderful man with us all".

Bush served as president from 1989-1993, entering office during a period of global upheaval.

The world is waking up to news this morning that former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has passed away.

When the monarch visited George Bush Snr's son George W Bush in 2007 Washington during his presidential term, she was reunited with the former American leader at a return dinner she hosted at the ambassador's residence.

He also credited Bush, who died Friday night at age 94, with working with other countries and the United Nations in the first Gulf War. The Democrat added that through the Points of Light initiative that Bush founded, which promotes volunteerism, he embraced "a uniquely American volunteer spirit" and bipartisan support.

CDU to choose new party leader
In the 2013 election, they won 41.5 per cent of the vote and only just fell short of an outright parliamentary majority. Angela Merkel loyalist Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has been elected as the new leader of the German chancellor's party.


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.

"President George H.W. Bush lived a life of public service that demonstrated an unquestionable dedication and love of his country".

The 41st USA president met with Latter-day Saint leaders on numerous occasions, according to the book "Presidents and Prophets".

President Trump, in typically Trumpian fashion, shared both a formal prepared statement and an off-the-cuff tweet on the subject, lauding Bush's "long, successful and lovely life" (?) in the latter.

Trump's words of admiration for George H.W. Bush cap more than three years of hostility between the current president and the Bush family. "And I think in an odd way, he made it look so easy that people don't appreciate how hard a task he had".

Meanwhile, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe wrote that Bush was "a humble, well-respected political figure while serving and through his many years post-presidency".
