Bush after his death, honoring his “public service, integrity, and determination.”

Political figures of all stripes have memorialized Bush, 94, after the 41st president's death was announced late Friday.

“A life very well lived; an American who made us all proud. May he rest in eternal peace,” he added.

Brennan, who describes himself on Twitter as a “nonpartisan American who is very concerned about our collective future,” has emerged as one of Trump’s fiercest critics.

Trump was among the political figures honoring Bush early Saturday morning after his death, saying he “inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service.”
