Donald Trump has made a personal call to those closest to the late George HW Bush, saying he was without doubt the best president this nation has ever seen.
“A wonderful, intelligent, amazing president. Really incredible. The best ever,” Mr Trump told the family, adding that he would rank George HW Bush as probably eight or ninth best.
During the ten-minute call with Bush’s family, Mr Trump said he gave so much to his country, and will continue to give more over the next two years as president.
“What a guy. He’s a credit to his country,” Mr Trump said.
