Ex President George Bush Doesn’t Like Donald Trump

According to Fortune Magazine:

For much of the past eight years, former president George W. Bush has been absent from the political sphere, choosing instead to spend his time on his ranch in Texas. Now, though, the former head of state is making moves to try to help Senators who are in danger of losing this November, especially those who may be hurt by the up-ballot presence of Donald Trump.

Friends of Bush told the New York Times that he is upset with the way Trump has conducted his campaign — which makes sense, considering that Bush’s brother Jeb was Trump’s favorite punching bag, and that one of the major points of Trump’s campaign has been to denigrate the War in Iraq, the controversial centerpiece of the Bush administration. Trump even echoed the left wing theory that Bush and his administration intentionally lied to Congress and the American people to convince them to support the war.

“President Bush believes that it’s critical to keep the Senate in Republican hands,” said Freddy Ford, Mr. Bush’s spokesman, to the Times. “He is actively helping some senators in tight races who are strong leaders and share timeless conservative values.”
