George W. Bush says he wrote to Rice in the 2020 presidential election in Condoleezza
Former President George W. Bush recently announced that he did not vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election but wrote on behalf of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. “She knows,” Bush reportedly told People of Rice magazine, which served as secretary of state during his presidency. “But she told me she would refuse to take the office.” In 2016, Bush and former first lady Laura Bush did not cast votes for a presidential candidate, they only voted for Republican candidates in voting rounds, his spokesman said. Bush’s decision not to vote for his party’s candidate for two consecutive presidential cycles could be the result of bad blood between the Bush family and Trump following the 2016 GOP primary election. During the 2016 race, Trump repeatedly insulted Bush’s brother Jeb Bush, who also ran for the presidency in 2016. During the campaign, Trump also criticized Bush’s legacy, blaming George W. Bush for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Although Bush criticized the GOP in recent advertising interviews for his new book Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants, he used the People interview to retrace his latest harsh assessment of the party. In an interview with NBC’s Today aired Tuesday, Bush called the GOP “an isolationist, protectionist, and to some extent nativist.” He later toned down his remarks in his interview with People: “Really, what I should have said – there are loud voices that are isolationists, protectionists and nativists, something I was talking about when I was president, by the way.” “But I painted with a brush that was too wide … because my words were excluding a lot of Republicans who think we could fix the problem,” he added. While promoting the new book, which features portraits of American immigrants, Bush hopes to initiate a “more respectful tone” on Capitol Hill. The book’s mission is to help change Congress’s views on the country’s immigration policy. “Please put the harsh rhetoric about immigration aside,” Bush said, addressing Congress in an interview with CBS News that aired on Sunday. “Please put aside the attempt to score political points on both sides.” Bush, a Republican who served as president from 2001 to 2009, has supported a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants as they pass a background check and pay taxes.
