George HW Bush becomes the longest-living president

26 Novembre 2017

Bush, the 41 president in US history, surpassed Gerald Ford, who lived until he was 93 years, 165 days and died in 2006.

Former President George H.W. Bush reached another milestone Saturday when he became the longest-living commander-in-chief in USA history. He was born a little more than a hundred days later than Bush. He originally served as Ronald Reagan's vice president in the 1980s and succeeded him as a 64-year-old.

Recently, the former president has been restrained to a wheelchair or motorized scooter.

Ford died in December of 2006, when he was 93 years and 165 days old.

Bush has faced significant health complications this year, and has been hospitalized for pneumonia and chronic bronchitis.

In October, Bush joined the four other living former presidents - Barack Obama; Bill Clinton; Jimmy Carter; and his son, George W. Bush - for a hurricane relief concert in Texas.

The milestone was first reported on Twitter Saturday by Gabe Fleisher, a high school student who writes a newsletter "Wake Up To Politics".
