Trump Rails Against A “Failed And Uninspiring Presidency,” Just Not His Own
Twice-impeached, one-term former president Donald Trump on Monday criticized a “failed and uninspiring presidency” and said a former president shouldn’t be “lecturing” Americans. Trump’s comments were directed at former president George W. Bush, who commented about the threat posed by domestic terrorism during his remarks at the Sept. 11 ceremony in Shanksville, Pa., on Saturday.
In decrying “violent extremists at home,” Bush condemned the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, when the pro-Trump mob overran the complex in a violent siege that resulted in the deaths of five people.
“So interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East (and then not winning!), as he lectures us that terrorists on the ‘right’ are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America, and that are pouring into our Country right now,” Trump said in a statement.
