The 41st President of the United States of America, George HW Bush who helped his country to steer through the World War II, passed away on Friday night at the age of 94 and tributes from all around the world have started pouring in as America mourns the loss of an “unflappable leader”.

Known as the World War II hero, who also helped the US to survive the Cold War, George Herbert Walker Bush passed away yesterday night and will be remembered as a patrician New Englander who soared to the position of President of the United States during some of the landmark incidents and times. Bush presided the States from 1989 to 1993, and has played an important role in peaceful conclusion of the World War II, the Cold War and also the dispersion of Soviet Union after the war.

In 1992, he lost the election against businessman Bill Clinton, but Bush the senior survived long enough to see his son George W Bush taking his seat as the president of the country again. On Friday night, it was announced that Bush has passed away, just a few months after his wife Barbara Bush passed away in April 2018. George HW Bush, sometimes also known as George Bush Senior is now survived by five sons and 17 grandchildren. Shortly after the notice, Trump issued a statement and the White House lowered its flag to half-mast in the honour of the deceased leader.

Soon after the news, tributes started pouring in and Donald Trump, Barack Obama and George W Bush lend respect and tributes for the 41th President of the US. Former US President and Bush’s son George W Bush said that “Bush senior was the man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for”. Former US President Barack Obama says America has lost a patriot and humble servant in George Herbert Walker Bush. Also, other White House employees, global leaders, celebrities and all twitteratis have poured tributes for the former American President, who had actually “made America great”.
