George H. W. Bush, 41st President of the United States of America, passed this evening

Statement by the Office of George H. W. Bush on the passing of the 41st President of the United States of America this evening at 10:10pm CT at the age of 94.



George H.W. Bush dies at 94. The 41st president of the United States helped guide the world out of a four-decade Cold War.

Bush was a steadfast force on the international stage for decades, from his stint as an envoy to Beijing to his eight years as vice president and his one term as commander in chief from 1989 to 1993.

The last veteran of World War II to serve as president, Bush came to be seen as a consummate public servant and a statesman who helped guide the nation and the world out of the U.S.-Soviet Cold War that had carried the threat of nuclear annihilation.

He was also the father to George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the United States.
This is a developing story. It will be updated.

3. As awful as he was, he thought Trump wasn't up to his standards.

Which makes one pause.

4. He didn't get enough credit

I agree with President Obama, G. H. W. Bush didn't get enough credit for what he did for this country. As just one example, if not for his actions, Reagan's Recession would have been far deeper and longer and hurt many more people.
