Iraq War architect and former U.S President George Bush slammed President Trump’s moves to get the United States untangled from endless and distant foreign wars when speaking alongside Bill Clinton at the Nir School of the Heart.
Bush’s words come days after the political establishment has erupted in rage over President Trump’s decision to remove around 1,000 U.S service members from Syria’s Civil War.
The member of the political dynasty said that “an isolationist United States is destabilizing around the world. We are becoming isolationist and that’s dangerous for the sake of peace.”
For many Americans, it’s frankly rich to hear the widely unpopular and disliked former President attack one of his successors for a foreign policy of restraint. As President, George Bush initiated one of the worst foreign policy disasters in the history of the United States, invading Iraq on the false premise of a nuclear program that the country didn’t actually have.
Millions died as a result of Bush’s colossal blunder, and the Middle East remains destabilized to this day, in part because of the invasion that removed dictator Saddam Hussein from power. Thousands of American military personnel were killed or injured in the war, and countless more continue to suffer from post-traumatic stress. Many Iraq War veterans have committed suicide.
George Bush claimed he was obeying an unwritten rule during the presidency of Barack Obama by declining to criticize him. That rule flew out of the window almost immediately during Trump’s presidency, with the former President tacitly and explicitly criticizing Trump from almost the beginning of his presidency.
It may come as a relief for the family-dynasty former President to see his image rehabilitated by elite liberals with a short memory hoping to align with the well-entrenched neoconservative element in the federal bureaucracy he represents.

Trump White House Chief of Staff Claims America “Desperate” For More Immigration
Safe to say that’s not what the President’s supporters voted for.
President Trump’s White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney sharply departed from previous Trump administration policy on immigration when speaking at an event in England on Wednesday, according to new reporting from the Washington Post.
Mulvaney claimed that the United States is “desperate” for higher levels of legal immigration.
“We are desperate — desperate — for more people. We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we’ve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants.”
Mulvaney framed his call for additional levels of legal immigration by merely stating the process had to be lawful. It wasn’t a consideration that unauthorized immigration is already illegal for a reason- it drives down wages of American workers, raises costs of housing and utilities, and places burdens on communities unprepared for elevated levels of population growth.
Unfortunately, Mulvaney’s perspective on immigration policy- one that prioritizes a desire for more cheap labor for American corporations- is widely held among the donor class elite of the Republican Party, who ignores concerns on the impact of such policy on American workers. Charles Koch, a notable political enemy of President Trump, bankrolls influence efforts to massively increase annual legal immigration levels, putting himself on the same page as Mulvaney on the topic.
President Trump has given mixed messages on legal immigration policy, running on a strong pro-American worker restrictionist platform as a candidate and flirting with the idea of increased levels as President. Immigration levels broadly have decreased during his presidency, a development likely linked to the increase in wages among America’s blue collar workers.
Early Trump supporters such as Stephen K. Bannon and Stephen Miller have proved instrumental to blocking plans suggested by those such as Jared Kushner to buff immigration levels. Unfortunately, it appears as if the Chamber of Commerce crowd has an ally in a high place within the White House, who seeks to deliver the cheap labor programs they need to avoid paying higher wages to American workers.
Mulvaney’s desire to push the policies of the Chamber of Commerce and Koch Brothers raises serious questions about his high-ranking place within the administration.
