President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump on the Passing of Former President George H.W. Bush

Washington, DC...Melania and I join with a grieving Nation to mourn the loss of former President George H.W. Bush, who passed away last night. Through his essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service—to be, in his words, “a thousand points of light” illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world.




President Bush always found a way to set the bar higher. As a young man, he captained the Yale baseball team, and then went on to serve as the youngest aviator in the United States Navy during the Second World War. Later in life, he rose to the pinnacle of American politics as a Congressman from Texas, envoy to China, Director of Central Intelligence, Vice President of eight years to President Ronald Reagan, and finally President of the United States.

With sound judgement, common sense, and unflappable leadership, President Bush guided our Nation, and the world, to a peaceful and victorious conclusion of the Cold War. As President, he set the stage for the decades of prosperity that have followed. And through all that he accomplished, he remained humble, following the quiet call to service that gave him a clear sense of direction.

Along with his full life of service to country, we will remember President Bush 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. Our hearts ache with his loss, and we, with the American people, send our prayers to the entire Bush family, as we honor the life and legacy of 41.

Trump needs to just shut his $hit hole on this one too.

HW's humility, kindness, service to country only serve to show the completely vile, vain, selfish and narcissistic nature of Trump's character.

Trump is a complete, abject failure as a human being and president.

What an effing hypocrite. Trump was always putting down the Bush family AND ridiculed "the thousand points of light" program. Our memories are not that short.

Though both came from relative wealth, what a stark contrast in humanity. Bush Senior was a man of integrity and high moral character who was taught to remain humble. Trump, on the other hand, makes everything about him and spends his days demeaning others.

      That's the real point, isn't it? We now accept boorish and immoral behavior so long as people believe they're doing relatively well. As parents and teachers we try to show that bullying is wrong yet we dismiss it in our POTUS. A very sad state of affairs indeed.

      You are mistaken. Either you're too young to remember or just brainwashed. Bush Sr. operated with dignity and class. Perhaps in your mind policy was the same in the end but it was done with diplomacy. Trump is just a world class bully who issues threats on a daily basis, most recently to the head of GM.

        Bush 41 definitely had dignity and he was smart and well-read too. Very different than Trump. And he had the courage to change his policies and face down his own party when the budget required it. He raised taxes and it cost him a second term. But it was the right thing to do because Reagan's tax cuts had increased the deficit to an unsustainable level.

        My only real objection to Bush is that he continued to push Thomas's appointment to SCOTUS even after it was clear he was a sex pervert and harasser.

    The truth shown time and time again is Dump and his pals are traitors.
    The GOP supporting Dump and covering for him even now when his anti America policies makes them abetting a traitor and his crime family.
    many exposes shpw Dump acts as a mob don.
    His language, commanding loyalty above all else, America, our laws, Constitution.

    If you support this criminal, you too are part of his illegalities, and treasonous behavior, nothing to be proud of.

    The Republican party is a criminal traitorous enterprise.

                  Dump is showing unhinged behavior in Argentina.
                  He has cancelled a press conference, and walked away from questions he was answering, with no explanation.

                  He is showing stress he cannot deal with.

                  Your orange terd is coming unglued, unable to control his surroundings, the signs of a break down.

                  Soon he will resign, unable to fire the prosecutor on his heels.

                  Individual #1 will now face the piper.

                  After he is out of the office, the NYState Atty Gen has a pile of indictments for prosecuting him, and his crime family

                  The trump foundation.
                  laundering Russian oligarch $ in his real estate.
                  Tax evasion.
                  More.

                  Donnie wanted it for the publicity, he didn't want the office.

                  Now the con Don faces the music.

Pretty neat how Donnie "Needledikkk" Trump made five kids with three different skanks! The evangelicals are stoked about that! Pray for Trump as he keeps grinding his orange bush against porn stars!

      Yep, Trump spends a lot of time on his knees in front of Putin, Bin Salman, Little Rocket Man, Jinping, etc. Whoring America out and stuffing his pockets with money. Complete vile traitor.

      Stormy Daniels, dude. The whore that Donnie paid 130k to bone. I give him credit though. I don't think I could have gotten it up. I would have been thinking about the 130 grand the whole time! Then again, when you're playing with a combination of daddy's money and borrowed Russian money, why not?
