Former US President George HW Bush has died at age 94.

Trump tweeted his statement from Buenos Aires, where he arrived on Thursday for the G20 summit.

Bush was president of the US from 1989-1993 and brought a "dedication to traditional American values" and a determination to make the USA a "kinder and gentler nation", according to a White House biography.

Months into his presidency he was faced with the dissolution of the Soviet Union and he oversaw the removal of Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega.

George H.W. Bush died at the age of 94 on November 30, 2018.

He also served as a congressman, Central Intelligence Agency director and Ronald Reagan's vice-president. His failed 1980 presidential ended in his tenure as Reagan's vice president.

In 2001, Bush became just the second USA president after John Adams to see his son become president.

As one of his first major decisions, Bush chose to remove Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega - a former USA ally turned global drug lord - from power.

In August 1990 he responded to Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, creating a national coalition led by the USA that liberated the oil-rich yet tiny nation but stopped short of toppling the Iraqi dictator. Bush was able to create an worldwide coalition and led a military strike to drive Hussein out of the country. Around 425,000 USA troops and 118,000 coalition forces were mobilized for weeks of aerial strikes and a 100-hour ground battle. He was succeeded by Democrat Bill Clinton.

Bush continued: "The new breeze blows, a page turns, the story unfolds".
