The passing of George H.W. Bush gave Trump and the Bush family a unique opportunity to come together civilly and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, that is something the elder Bush would have wanted. This is a great story.

Jeb Bush: President Trump ‘Couldn’t Have Been Nicer’ After Father Died
Both the Trump and the Bush families have been all class in the wake of the 41st president’s passing. On top of refusing to pull a McCain by inviting President Trump to the funeral, the Bushes have only expressed kind words regarding the current president.
On Tuesday, while speaking before the WSJ CEO Council, Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, thanked both Donald and Melania Trump for their graciousness throughout this process, adding that President Trump “couldn’t have been nicer” when he called to pay his respects.
None of that means, however, that Jeb Bush and President Trump’s differences have been resolved. In the same talk, Jeb spoke about his father’s famous call for a “kinder, gentler America” and how that needs to come back.
“Politically it’s not winning,” Mr. Bush said of his father’s style. “But that’s not to say we shouldn’t restore it.”
Jeb Bush hoped that his father’s death would not be “an end of an era.” Later, he spoke of the optimism he has that such an era will return.
Things like this are good for the country. It is a sad time for the Bush family, but in a way, George H.W. Bush has done a great service to America once again.
