President Bush commented on food aid to the Soviet Union in response to a question from a reporter while on vacation in Kennebunkport, Maine. President Bush said his administration would study the possibility of assistance to the Soviet Union following the failed coup by communist hard-liners very carefully. He also said the term “aid” sounded gratuitous, whereas he would prefer the term “humanitarian assistance.” He also bragged about being able to withstand bee stings after having taken shots in defense against them. close
