Trump: Bush a 'Titan in American Life'

President Donald Trump is praising former first lady Barbara Bush as a "wonderful, wonderful person" and a "titan in American life."

Trump says her presence and character were engraved into America's identity and her strength and toughness embodied the nation's spirit.

He noted her tireless advocacy for literacy, along with her patriotism and "profound faith."

Mrs. Bush, who was the wife and mother of two presidents, died Tuesday. She was 92.

First lady Melania Trump plans to attend the former first lady's funeral Saturday in Houston.

Trump did not say whether he would also attend. He commented as he opened a news conference in Florida with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
