GW Bush trashes Trump

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, decrying bigotry, bullying and fabrication as he urged citizens to oppose threats to American democracy.

“This is a unique moment. The great democracies face new and serious threats yet seem to be losing confidence in their own calling and competence,” Bush said, in concluding remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York.

“When we lose sight of our ideals, it is not democracy that has failed. It is the failure of those charged with protecting and defending democracy,” adding later, “We need to recall and recover our own identity. Americans have great advantage. To renew our country, we only need to remember our values.”

By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations General Assembly.
