Former President George W. Bush does not mince his words. The 43 rd head of state of Usa is turning up the heat on President Donald Trump. Bush dissed Trump in an interview with People magazine published Monday, hours after he threw shade on the commander in chief’s policies on NBC’s “Today” show.
“I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” the 70-year-old told the magazine. “Nobody likes that.”
The 43rd president, who had been reluctant to come down hard on Trump, told People that the Bush Center is involved with initiatives that appear to counter the new administration’s policies. He listed several events at the presidential library and museum, such as pro-immigration programs and leadership training for Muslim women, to highlight the work.
“There’s a lot of ways to speak out,” Bush told People, “but it’s really through actions defending the values important to [my wife Laura] and me. … We’re a blessed nation, and we ought to help others.”, reported the international news, www.huffingtonpost.com
Earlier on Monday, Bush took a jab at Trump’s controversial executive order banning Syrian refugees and temporarily barring visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries.
“I am for an immigration policy that is welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” show
