Bush Hailed Across Party and Global Lines as Man of Decency

Trump says he spoke with former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to express his sympathies.

Bush, who was president from 1989 to 1993, died late Friday at age 94. There will be very tough times, made even more hard by criticism you may not think is fair.

George HW Bush's service dog Sully pays touching last tribute
He was recommended to Bush through VetDog's relationship with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Mr Bush , who served as the 41st United States president between 1989 and 1993, died late on Friday at the age of 94.

Although the two Republican presidents were in many ways polar opposites - the soft-spoken, patrician Bush reportedly once dismissed the blustering New Yorker as a "blowhard" and even voted for his rival Hillary Clinton - Trump paid the late leader a gracious tribute, saying he had "inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service". Bush is to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda from Monday evening through Wednesday morning. He'll be interred later on Thursday at the George Bush Presidential Library & Museum on the grounds of Texas A&M University in College Station, after making the final leg, from Spring, Texas, by train. The remains will be transported by funeral auto (train) to College Station.

George Bush Jnr said in a statement his father was "a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for". He credited Bush's ability to negotiate with former Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev as playing a key role. "Partly it was a great team with the president as commander in chief, Brent Scowcroft, national security adviser, Jim [Baker], the secretary of state and myself", he said. Guided by his wisdom, sound judgment, and unshakable faith in freedom, President Bush forged a lasting worldwide order and ushered in an era of national peace and prosperity. "President HW Bush's ethos of public service was the guiding thread of his life and an example to us all".

World AIDS Day to be marked with vigils and rallies
HIV treatment can reduce viruses in the blood (also known as viral load) and other bodily fluids to undetectable levels. UNAIDS in its global report reveals that research "shows that 75% of all people living with HIV know their HIV status".

In recent years, Bush suffered from numerous health problems, including Parkinson's disease that kept him wheelchair bound and a bout of severe pneumonia in 2013. "I love you, too", Bush replied.

"Thank you [SNL] for the Trump cold open (which we know he hates) then on Weekend Update reminding us that some presidents have a sense of humor about themselves". But the world of politics was calling this son of a USA senator. Eight years later, in accepting his party's nomination for president in 1988, Bush pleaded for a "kinder, and gentler nation". "I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described", Bush continued in a somewhat heartfelt manner - an exchange hardly expected between two presidents in today's highly divisive political environment in the United States.

New HIV Cases Diagnosed In NI Last Year
Meanwhile, the report also found that new HIV diagnoses continued to decline, falling 17% from 5,280 in 2016 to 4,363 in 2017. The momentum to revamp political commitment to end AIDS by 2030 has never been so strong in the European Region.

Bush, who months before writing his letter had warned voters to "watch your wallet" with that Democrat Clinton, was self-effacing and personal in his handoff.
