George W. Bush Makes Shocking Announcement, Breaks Silence on Election

During the presidential election, former president George W. Bush regularly spoke out against Donald Trump. Bush has stayed silent since Trump’s win on Election Day, not saying what he thinks about his victory: until now.

This week, Bush spoke out to warn Trump about letting anger dictate policy, especially when it comes to trade.

“I understand anger, and some people might have been angry when I was president, but anger shouldn’t drive policy,” Bush said. “What should drive policy is what’s best for the people who are angry and how does it benefit people in our country and people in our neighborhood.”

Bush began his comments by saying that he does not “think it’s helpful for a former president to criticize successors.” He then pushed back against Trump’s frequent campaign argument that trade deals have been bad for the U.S. economy, sending jobs overseas and shrinking wages.

Bush said that during Trump’s presidency, he should “recognize that trade encourages growth and fair trade is important for the workers of our respective countries.”

Former President Bush doesn’t seem to realize that Trump will likely bring about great change to our economy for the better. Trump is trying to make a real difference in the U.S., and Bush should allow him to do that.

    Bushes Idea’s did not work that well, so he should keep his mouth shut. Let a professional who has conducted business here and abroad with success, so let him do his thing. It might just turn this country around faster than you ever seen.

    George W. Bush has the brains of a squirrel, to do him a favor.
    He has done more than anyone in recent history to make a whole mess of the world, with his criminal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, that have resulted in millions of casualties, the eradication of Christianity in most of the Middle East, the unleashing of terrorism and the tsunami of Islamic invasion of Europe. He is largely responsible for what is probably the last nail in the coffin of Western civilization.
    But specifically to the point of his comments: Bush said …. “recognize that trade encourages growth and fair trade is important for the workers of our respective countries.”
    He (Bush) was elected to work on what is important to the workers of the USA, not that of “other countries”. But Bush was just parroting what he has been told to think and to say.
    Go back to play with your crayons, George.

    George Bush had his day in the sunshine. It’s now Donald Trumps turn and we all know he’s not one to beat around the Bush.

    I voted for Bush both times. However, I think the nation is one hell of a lot better off with a negotiator who has a firm grasp on getting things done in the best interest of the country. After the last 8 years the country is much worse than when Bush took office. I’m confident that Trump has the skills to turn the nation around.

    Since the Bush’s turned on Trump during his campaign and also did not vote for him, i don’t even hear them any more. They disgust me with their goal of the ,’One World Order.”

    In my humble opinion, Past President Bush spoke out against President-elect Trump because of emotions (family), oil and Haiti. The unfortunate decision of the Bushes to speak against President-elect Trump and move to the Clinton Camp spoke volumes to the relationship (business past and present) that the Bushes and Clintons have forged for what purposes? Follow the money!

    Bush, it turns out, was as yellow as a summer squash.
    He was a caretaker president.
    Donald Trump has revealed just how impudent and sorrowful his predecessors were. They talked a lot and did nothing.
