“Rush was very sick at the time. I didn’t want to do the surprise thing and give him the medal. We didn’t really have the power of doing that because it was a very difficult thing for him to come to Washington from where he was. He was a brave guy,” the former President said.
“He was a very unique guy. He had tremendous incite. He got it, he was very street smart,” said Mr. Trump. “We developed a very good friendship. He was a very strong guy, we played golf together.”
