During the last eight years, former president George W. Bush had typically been one to not speak out against another president…, until now.
The former president had quite a few things to say during a recent People magazine interview, when asked about the Trump presidency, including that he still remains optimistic.
“I’m optimistic about where we’ll end up. Yes, I don’t like the racism, and I don’t like the name-calling, and I don’t like people feeling alienated. Nobody likes that. On the other hand, we’ve been through these periods before and we’ve always had a way to come out of it. I am more optimistic than some. The job has a way of bringing a reality to each president’s situation and that’s what’s going to happen now,” Bush stated.

According to the Washington Examiner, Bush added, “When President Obama got elected, friends would call [saying], ‘You must speak out! You must do this. You must do that.’ Turns out, other people are doing the same thing this time.”
Bush said that, although he won’t speak out against President Trump’s policies, he will continue to do the work he has been involved in, like the work done by the Bush Center.
“I didn’t feel like speaking out before because I didn’t want to complicate the job, and I’m not going to this time. However, at the Bush Center, we are speaking up.”
The Bush Center program hosts immigration ceremonies, sponsors African AIDS prevention programs, and runs leadership training for Muslim women.
