It is curious that the former President George W. Bush could not be reached for a single comment when it came to criticizing Barack Obama.
He openly admitted that he was working towards the goal of “fundamentally” and radically transforming the United States.
All of a sudden, George W. Bush seems to have found his voice.
On Thursday, the former President said that the United States needs to “welcome” immigrants and thank them for doing the jobs Americans will not do. “Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that,” he said. “We ought to say thank you and welcome them.”
According to our source, Conservative Post, while speaking at a summit in Abu Dhabi, George W. Bush criticized President Donald Trump’s approach to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (the DACA program), which protects undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children from deportation.
“America is their home,” Bush said of DACA. He also told his audience that there is clear evidence of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
“There’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled,” Bush said, the news service reported. “Whether they affected the outcome is another question.”
“It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system,” he added. “Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results.”
“It is important for our economy and also important for our soul that the immigration system functions well,” he said. “I view it as a relationship vital for our economy and for our stability. We’ve got to enforce our borders and we’ve got to enforce our laws.”
Bush also criticized the Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that he has a “chip on his shoulders.”
“The reason he does is because of the demise of the Soviet Union troubles him,” Bush said, according to the AP. “Therefore, much of his moves are to regain Soviet hegemony.”
