Former president George W. Bush said Thursday that the United States should be thankful to immigrants because Americans don’t want to “pick cotton.”

Despite the fact that cotton is picked by machines and it is not done manually anymore, Bush hearkened back to a different age in America in order to make his point about ethnic and racial assimilation.

“Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees [Fahrenheit], but there are people who want [to] put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that. We ought to say thank you and welcome,” Bush stated in his speech at a summit in Abu Dhabi.

Bush also sided with anti-President Trump conspirators, pushing the narrative of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Bush, who left office with historically low approval ratings following a failed war in Iraq and an economic collapse, has improved his standing with the mainstream media by criticizing President Trump (though without using Trump’s name). Bush always refrained from slamming Barack Obama, stating that he does not seek to criticize his successors.
