In a new interview this week, former President George W. Bush revealed who he voted for in the 2020 presidential election, and the person he picked might surprise you.
Bush reveals who he voted for
Bush told People Magazine that he did not vote for Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Instead, he voted for his former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
“She knows,” he said. “But she told me she would refuse to take the office.”
Bush gave this interview to promote his new book of paintings entitled “Out of Many, One,” which, in addition to their stories, contains a selection of his portraits of American immigrants. A press release said the book highlights “the inspiring journeys of American immigrants and their contributions to the life and prosperity of our nation.”
Bush clears up previous comments
Bush also clarified some controversial comments he made about the Republican Party earlier this week on “Today” when he said of it, “I would describe it as an isolationist, a protectionist and, to some extent, a nativist.”
“Really, what I should have said – there are loud voices that are isolationists, protectionists and nativists, which, by the way, I talked about when I was president,” he said. “My concerns [are] about these -isms, but I painted with a brush that was too wide … because what I said left out a lot of Republicans who believe we can fix the problem. “

“I built a lot of the wall myself, as did Clinton and Obama, and the reason is because the American people expect our laws to be respected,” Bush said. “The truth is, a wall will only work if there are major reforms such as work visas, fixed asylum systems and border guards focused on their jobs. So there needs to be a comprehensive approach to securing the border, and we shall see. “
Nonetheless, Bush remains optimistic about the future.
