Recently, former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush came out firing against President Donald Trump. The latter implied that Trump was responsible for a revival of racism throughout America while the former called Trump a “blowhard” who he worried could destroy the Republican Party.
But the Trump administration – never known to take criticism lying down – is firing back. They are pointing out the failures of the two Bush presidents, most notably in Iraq. Both presidents took America to war with Iraq with little to show for it, and the current mess in Middle East is largely a consequence of their decisions made in the Oval Office.
“If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had,” a White House official said to CNN. “And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history.”
The elder Bush, now confined to a wheelchair with an appearance that could be defined charitably as decrepit, gave his criticism to historian Mark Updegrove to publish in his book, “The Last Republicans.” Additionally, the elder Bush added that Trump “doesn’t know what it means to be president.”
The Bush family stayed largely silent during the Obama years. In fact, the younger Bush appeared arm-in-arm with Michelle Obama during a bizarre funeral display last year. It is clear that the Bush family is more comfortable with globalist insider Democrats such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton than they are with the brash outsider Trump. The Trump administration, as usual, is not fazed by the haters.
“President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an ‘America First’ foreign policy and standing up for the forgotten men and women of our great county,” the White House official said to CNN.
Trump has his work cut out for him if he wants to reverse the damage that has been done throughout many decades by globalist presidents, none with their fingerprints more on this disaster than the Bushes’ themselves.
