Former President George W. Bush will continue his criticism of the Trump administration, telling People magazine in its upcoming issue, “I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated.” The ex-president’s comments come after he chastised the Republican president—for whom he did not vote—for his ongoing war with the media. Bush told the Today show he believes the media are “indispensable to democracy” and that sensible immigration policy should be “welcoming and upholds the law”—both comments in stark contrast to how the Trump White House has conducted itself in its first month-and-a-half. Asked by People whether Trump has reached out to his Republican predecessor for advice, Bush said no, adding, “It doesn’t hurt my feelings. I understand the nature of the job. There’s a lot incoming when you’re the president and you just got to focus on your job.”
