Bush Gets Trolled for 'Russian Meddling' Remarks

George W. Bush

Bush made the comments at a talk in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates. But the intent was undeniable, he said.

United States intelligence agencies have concluded Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election to help Mr Trump win.

"He's got a chip on his shoulder", Bush said of Putin, calling him "zero-sum". "We ought to say thank you and welcome them".

Although Trump was not mentioned by name, Bush's remarks seemed to target him.

Mr Putin "is pushing, constantly pushing, probing weaknesses", the former president said. Therefore, many of his movements (are) to regain Soviet hegemony.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation intervened in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

Ingraham said Bush should understand - especially after the American people spoke in the 2016 election - there is no constituency for perpetual military intervention, open borders and unpoliced global trade deals.

He added: "It is important for our economy and also important for our soul that the immigration system functions well".

The Republican also spoke out in defense of young people brought into the U.S.by their parents and who now face deportation after Trump abruptly ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

While Bush said he didn't know whether Russian meddling actually affected the outcome of the election, he was still troubled by the damage that such meddling can do to American democracy.

"America's their home", he said.

The 43 president then commented on Mexico, along whose border Trump wishes to build his now infamous wall.

"Our system is broken but we've got to fix it".
