GEORGE W. BUSH ON TRUMP: “I DON’T LIKE THE RACISM AND I DON’T LIKE THE NAME-CALLING”

After refraining from criticizing his successors for eight years, on Tuesday former president George W. Bush revealed in a Today interview that he takes issue with President Trump’s attacks on the press and the travel ban.

He even said, “We all need answers” on the president’s potential ties to Russia.

Then in an interview with People published on Tuesday night, Bush added that he’s not a fan of the “racism” and “name-calling” he’s seeing today.

“I’m optimistic about where we’ll end up. I mean, yes, I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated. Nobody likes that,” said Bush, who is promoting a book featuring his portraits of wounded veterans.

“On the other hand, we’ve been through these periods before and we’ve always had a way to come out of it. I’m more optimistic than some.”
