George W. Bush refused to criticize Barack Obama for eight years.
Many wondered if he would continue deferring to Donald Trump.
Bush answered that question and many were appalled at his answer.
George W. Bush inserted himself into the public dialogue to blast Trump.
He moaned that he didn’t like the “racism and name calling” in Trump’s America.
“Former President George W. Bush says he dislikes the “racism,” “name-calling” and “people feeling alienated” under Donald Trump’s presidency.
In an interview alongside his wife Laura with People, the former president was critical of the current political climate in Washington, which he described as “pretty ugly.” “I’m not going back nowhere!” he said, according to the magazine.
“I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” Bush said. “Nobody likes that.”
But Bush didn’t stop there.
He repeated his support for open borders and attacked Trump’s executive order to pause travel from terrorist connected nations.
“Monday on NBC’s “Today,” former President George W. Bush was asked to offer his thoughts on President Donald Trump’s executive order halting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Bush emphasized to host “Today” host Matt Lauer the importance to “worship freely.”
“I think it’s very important for all of us to recognize one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to or not worship at all,” Bush said. “The bedrock of our freedom, a bedrock of our freedom, is the right to worship freely. And I — you see, I understood right off the bat, Matt this, that is an ideological conflict. And people who murder the innocent are not religious people. They want to advance an ideology. And we’ve faced those in the past…
…Later when pressed on whether or not he approved or disapproved of the policy, Bush refrained.
“I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” he added.”
Bush betrayed Donald trump in the worst way possible.
It’s normal for President’s to not talk about their successors.
Bush refused to criticize Barack Obama for eight years.
But in one interview he ripped Trump more than he ever did Obama during his two terms in office.
Pundits believe it’s because Trump is undoing the Bush legacy and grip on the GOP.
For twenty years, the Bushes brand of big government, globalist Republicanism has ruled the GOP.
With his victory, Trump shattered that hold.
And his “America First” vision is a complete rejection of the globalist policies of the Bush administration.
That is why Bush violated his word and attacked Trump.
