George W. Bush hammers his own Republican Party – By Mary Rose Corkery (Daily Caller) / April 20 2021
‘It’s not exactly my vision, but I’m just an old guy they put out to pasture’
Former President George W. Bush commented on the present-day Republican Party on Tuesday and said it wasn’t what he had envisioned.
“I would describe it as isolationist, protectionist and to a certain extent nativist,” Bush said on “The TODAY Show.” The former president said that the GOP’s platform is not what he had envisioned now that he is not actively engaged in Washington, D.C., politics.
“Well it’s not exactly my vision, but you know, I’m just an old guy they put out to pasture so just a simple painter,” Bush said.
Bush proposed solutions to the current migrant crisis, including revamping the U.S.’ asylum system and retooling worker visas, as there are a plethora of unfilled jobs across the country many hard working immigrants could fill.
