Bush Sr. becomes the oldest president with 94 years

Former President George H.W. Bush (1989-1993) became today the oldest exmandatario of this country to turn 94 years, despite their health problems, local media reported today.

Bush will spend his birthday accompanied by his family in Kennebunkport (Maine), after the day 4 was discharged from a hospital after spending ten days admitted for low blood pressure and fatigue.

The former president, who suffers from a type of Parkinson’s that forces him to go in a wheelchair, has been hospitalized several times in recent years for different reasons.

In addition, last April he suffered a severe blow with the loss of his wife, the former first lady Barbara Bush, who died at 92 years.

Other nonagenarian former heads of state in US history they have been Gerald Ford (1974-1977), who died at 93; and Ronald Reagan (1981-1989), who also died at 93.

Jimmy Carter (1977-1981), still alive, was born four months after Bush and will turn 94 on October 1.

The Bush family saga is one of the most relevant in the country’s politics, since two of George H.W. Bush and Barbara have also had a prominent role, such as George W. Bush, who was president between 2001 and 2009, and the former governor of Florida (1999-2007) and presidential candidate in 2016, Jeb Bush.
