    President Donald Trump said former President George W. Bush’s decision to go to war in the Middle East was the biggest mistake in American history, in an interview published on Wednesday. “The worst single mistake ever made in the history of our country — going into the Middle East by President Bush,” Trump said in an interview with The Hill.TV. “Obama may have gotten ‘em out wrong, but going in is to me the biggest single mistake made in the history of our country.” Trump said that the American Civil War was “different” and that he could understand the motivations...

    Noticeably absent from [Bush’s] list is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican who is facing a surprisingly robust challenge from Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso. Cruz once worked for the former commander in chief, both on Bush’s presidential campaign and then in his administration. The senator also met his wife, Heidi, while working for Bush’s campaign, leading him to say that he “will always be grateful” to the former president…

    Today marks the 17th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks that left 2,996 people dead and more than 6,000 others injured in the United States. The horrific day began when hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93-99 of the World Trade Center’s North Tower at 8.46am. Minutes later at 9.03am, United Airlines Flight 175 was crashed by hijackers into floors 75-85 of WTC’s South Tower. Everyone aboard both planes were instantly killed along with those on the affected floors inside both towers. Within less than an hour of the two attacks on the Twin Towers, a...

    In April 2005, a Republican-led Department of Justice did something quite unusual. After catching a Democratic operative stealing and destroying highly relevant classified documents, the DoJ punished him as though he had stolen the Snickers bars from the office vending machine. On October 28, 2005, another curious event took place in those same halls of justice: an allegedly Republican special prosecutor indicted a White House advisor of his own party for a series of process crimes unrelated to the original intent of his investigation. As will become clear, this double injustice not only foreshadowed future injustices, but it also served...

    Vladimir Putin, wannabe cowboy and newly minted close buddy of President Bush, eagerly wanted to ride a horse in Texas, so he may have been disappointed to learn that Bush zips around his ranch in a Ford pickup. That's what was awaiting the Putins as they landed at the Bush ranch outside Waco in midafternoon. The Bushes, in ranch gear and carrying umbrellas to shield their guests from the rain, met the casually attired Putins when they arrived by helicopter for an overnight and barbecue at the Bush home. "The president brought the rain, for which we're always grateful in...
  • George W. Bush: I am ‘disturbed’ by the immigration rhetoric

    Former President George W. Bush is “disturbed” by the "rhetoric" in the current immigration debate. Bush attended an event at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Ark., on Thursday with former President Bill Clinton, CNN reported. He said the current immigration debate “undermines the goodness of America.” "I think it doesn't recognize the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society," Bush said. "And it obscures the fact — the rhetoric does — that the system is broken and needs to be fixed." There has been a national debate over handling immigration after the Trump administration implemented what it...

    Former President George W. Bush says he’s “disturbed” by the immigration debate occurring under President Trump, where after decades, Americans are speaking out against mass immigration to the United States. During a panel discussion alongside former President Bill Clinton, Bush said the current immigration debate “doesn’t recognize” the “valuable contributions” of foreign nationals. “I’m disturbed by the debate that’s taking place because I think it undermines the goodness of America,” Bush said. “I think it doesn’t recognize the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society.

    The George W. Bush Presidential Center is tweeting out coverage and analysis of human rights abuses in North Korea, just one day after President Trump’s historic summit with the country’s leader on Tuesday. The center has shared older posts on the human rights violations as well as pieces arguing for human rights to be included in future talks with North Korea. Asked about the posts, a spokesperson for the Bush Center told The Hill that it was “simply sharing content that we work on every day within our Human Freedom Initiative.” The spokesperson did not directly respond to an emailed...

    Kanye West revealed in a TMZ interview on Tuesday that he wanted to apologize to George W. Bush for saying in 2005 that the president did not care about black people in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Kanye West said he was always told not to apologize to Bush, but that he recently saw the former president pushing his father’s wheelchair at Barbara Bush’s funeral in March, and he felt sympathy for him. “Do you know how bad I would want to go to George Bush and say I’m sorry for hurting you. I was an artist I was hurting...

    Former President George W. Bush often jokes that President Trump's administration makes his own former White House team look "pretty good," according to a Republican source. The former Republican president regularly knocks the current administration, a source close to the Trump administration told National Journal, unable to understand why the White House often seems to be in chaos. "Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: 'Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn't it?' " the Journal reported. "He's shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can't get their act together," the source added....

    Former president George W. Bush said he believes Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, departing from President Trump, who has been skeptical of intelligence agencies’ findings that the Kremlin had interfered to help him win. “There’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled. Whether they affected the outcome is another question,” the 43rd president said at a summit in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. He added: “It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results.” Bush has been critical of Russia, slamming it for working...

    There are only two President addresses to the full Congress which I have listened to from beginning to end: President George W. Bush’s speech delivered in 2001 after the 9-11 terrorist attacks; and President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, delivered at the end of January this year. In 2001, I had just settled in for my third year at UC Irvine, serving as an office assistant at my college dorm. The 9-11 terrorist attack rattled everyone on campus and preoccupied us for the next two months, but we got through it and helped incoming freshmen move...

    Some weeks ago, former President George W. Bush delivered a speech attacking the incumbent president, Donald Trump, and his supporters. That was the “unmistakable” thrust of Mr. Bush’s remarks, in the apprehension of virtually everyone, even though he chose not to mention President Trump by name. The address consisted largely of elliptical references to sins committed against democracy, with the guilty parties left unidentified. But all of the sins referenced -- bigotry, white supremacism, nativism, protectionism, isolationism, “casual cruelty,” Russian interference in the last election -- sounded like liberal talking points. This address, given at an assemblage entitled “Spirit of...

    Anti-establishment firebrand Corey Stewart wasted little time Tuesday night before offering his synopsis of why Republicans lost big in Virginia's elections: They picked the wrong guy. After watching Republican Ed Gillespie go down in defeat in the governor's race, Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors and the former chairman of President Donald Trump's Virginia campaign, blasted Gillespie in a statement, saying he "refused to stand with the grassroots of the party and refused to fight ultra left wing Democrats." "Tonight was a humiliating rejection of the failed Bush wing of the Republican Party," said Stewart,...

    The only Republican President since World War II not to get elected to a second term, George Herbert Walker Bush, has broken President Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment to speak ill of another Republican, President Donald Trump, in his new book, The Last Republicans. Perhaps the book in which Bush whacked Trump should have been called, “The Last RINOs” for in addition to calling Trump a “blowhard” Bush 41 saying he voted for Hillary Clinton: The new book, by author Mark K. Undegrove, consists mostly of interviews looking back at the Republican Party over the past few decades and explores the...

    (CNN)The White House has struck back at both Bush presidents Saturday after the two made stinging comments about President Donald Trump in a new book about the father and son. "If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had," a White House official told CNN. "And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history." "President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an 'America First' foreign policy and standing...
