Former President George W Bush is proving what many conservatives have figured out long ago about the Bush family, they’re part of the progressive GOP. The former President, who carefully avoided criticizing FORMER President Obama during his 8-year reign, saw no problem with coming out swinging against President Trump. He essentially accused President Trump of being a Racist.
“I’m optimistic about where we’ll end up,” former President Bush tells PEOPLE of the current political unrest in America
“I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” Bush, 70, tells PEOPLE in an interview for the new issue of the magazine on newsstands Friday.
“Nobody likes that.”
The former president, joined by his wife Laura, spoke with PEOPLE in the third-floor painting studio of their Dallas home to launch his first art book, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors. The collection of portraits of the wounded warriors of America’s war on terror aims to raise awareness and funds for the post-9/11 veterans’ health care and employment programs of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.
