Bush takes veiled swipe at Trump, slams 'bullying and prejudice'

10/19/2017
Former US President George W. Bush on Thursday decried "bullying and prejudice" in a New York speech that appeared to be a sweeping, thinly veiled critique of President Donald Trump.

Bush, 71, used a rare public address to discuss nationalism, racial divisions and Russia's intervention in the 2016 election, all flashpoints of his fellow Republican's nine-month White House tenure. He did not mention Trump by name.

"Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children. The only way to pass along civic values is to first live up to them," Bush said at the Bush Institute's National Forum on Freedom, Free Markets and Security.
