George H.W. Bush was an honorable man.
Bush, who was president from 1989 to 1993, died late Friday at age 94.
"Thank you very much everybody", Trump replied.
"I met Mr. President back when I was an amateur, so back when we were practicing in Houston, so it's been a long time", 14-time major champion Woods said at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, where many in the 18-man field remembered Bush with the number "41" on their caps.
In South America, Trump canceled a planned news conference, tweeting that "out of respect for the Bush Family and former President George H.W. Bush we will wait until after the funeral" to hold one.
Bush will lie in state in the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol from Monday at 7:30 p.m. until Wednesday at 8:45 a.m. The remains will be transported by funeral vehicle (train) to College Station. 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.
From former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to current heads of state, leaders praised Bush both for his strength and his moderation, as well as the commitment to internationalism typified by his assembling of a global coalition to oust Iraqi invaders from Kuwait in 1991. He ran against one of Bush's sons, Jeb Bush, in the GOP presidential primaries in 2016, and was sharply critical of the two-term presidency of another, George W. Bush.
President Bush's mother and father were married at the church. Gorbachev called him "a true partner" in winding down the Cold War.
After suffering a crushing defeat by Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential election, Bush had to pack up and get out of the White House by January 20, 1993.
Affection between presidents, across today's toxic political divide, has extended beyond Clinton and the elder Bush. Bush subsequently bristled at suggestions that was racist, saying his heart contained "nothing but pride and love" for his grandchildren.
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. With President Bush's passing, the United States has lost one its greatest statesmen.
On his last day there, Bush sat at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office and penned a letter to his successor.
