By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is offering his condolences following the death of longtime Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar.
Trump says in a statement Monday that he and first lady Melania Trump extend their “deepest condolences to the citizens of Indiana and the entire Lugar family following the loss of a great American and public servant.”
Trump is calling Lugar “a proud Hoosier and patriot” and says he “leaves behind a long record of legislative accomplishments and a tremendous legacy of service.”
The statement was sent along with a photo of Trump meeting with Lugar in the Oval Office last June.
Lugar was a leading Republican voice on foreign policy during his 36 years in the Senate. He died Sunday at age 87 at a hospital in Virginia.
