Donald Trump praises Barbara Bush
"I want to begin today by expressing my deep condolences to the entire Bush family on the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush, a wonderful, wonderful person," he said at a presser at an April 18, 2018, presser alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe.
"For decades, Barbara was a titan in American life. Her presence and character were engraved into America’s identity. Her strength and toughness really embodied the spirit of our country. And her warmth and devotion earned the admiration of an entire nation and, indeed, the entire world. She was a tireless champion for literacy. She was a fierce advocate for the American family. And she was a woman of proud patriotism and profound faith."
