Former President George H.W. Bush is in intensive care, a day after a funeral was held for his wife, Barbara Bush, CNN has learned.

Bush, 93, was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital Sunday morning after contracting an infection that spread to his blood, family spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement Monday.

“He is responding to treatments and appears to be recovering. We will issue additional updates as events warrant,” said McGrath.
According to a source close to the former Republican President, Bush was admitted to the hospital with an infection that led to sepsis, which can be life-threatening. He was in critical condition, the source said.

Obama to deliver Mandela event speech in latest contrast with Trump:

Former President Barack Obama will deliver a high-profile address in July marking the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth as he continues to shape his post-White House platform.

Like all of Obama’s public appearances since leaving the White House, the lecture in Johannesburg isn’t likely to raise his successor, President Donald Trump, by name. But the topic and setting will provide an implicit contrast to Trump and his view of US leadership around the globe.
The July 17 speech, which was announced on Monday, will be paired with a five-day gathering of young African leaders that will include workshops and training, as well as a town hall with Obama. The Obama Foundation said it had received 10,000 applications for the 200 available slots in the program.
