'SNL' pays tribute to Bush 41 with montage of Dana Carvey's impressions

"President George H.W. Bush led a long, successful and handsome life".

Now that Donald Trump has set himself at odds with a significant part of voters with his fiery rhetoric, some point out that he could learn a thing from the late 41st president.

Some historians regard George H.W. Bush as more-bipartisan than his presidential successors - and his softer-spoken, humbler style is a far cry from Trump.

"Mr. Bush was a seasoned diplomat, a person who knew that politics demands - not just needs - but demands give-and-take. working with people who do not believe the way you do", he says. "The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens".

Trump and China called a trade war truce - now what?
The gathering's final statement , however, did not mention protectionism after negotiators said the US objected to the wording. But it stopped short of agreement on the two biggest challenges facing the G20: The future of world trade and climate change .

The Queen described Bush as "a great friend and ally of the United Kingdom", while Theresa May said his "ethos of public service was the guiding thread of his life and an example to us all". "They understand this is what they are supposed to do".

Bush didn't attend Texas A&M, but in 1991 chose the campus as the library's site.

Dozens of world leaders and American dignitaries are expected at the National Cathedral for what will be the fourth state funeral there of a president (following those of Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan). His wife, Columba, was born in Mexico, and Jeb and George P. Bush like to chat in Spanish.

Rep. George Holding: "From the war-torn skies over the Pacific to the hallowed halls of the White House, George H.W. Bush led a life of extraordinary service and profound effect".

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein told of his personal gratitude for Bush's hard work to secure his release from a prison in the Soviet Union.

Tiger Woods on Saturday recalled George H.W. He had enlisted in the US Navy on his 18th birthday. He left office in 1963, the same year John F. Kennedy was assassinated and the year after Teddy Kennedy was elected senator from MA. The Clintons and the Obamas both became friendly with the Bush family and attended Barbara Bush's funeral in April. He did say that Bush's death "really puts a damper" on his participation at the summit. He later accomplished something no one else in the family ever had in 2014: he won the first political race he ever entered in securing Texas' land commissionership.

Soon after he reached the zenith of his political popularity following the liberation of Kuwait, the US economy began to sour, however, and voters began to believe that Bush, never a great orator, was out of touch with ordinary people.
