Bush family condemns racial bigotry amid Trump backlash
August 17 , 2017
George HW Bush and his son George W Bush have condemned racial bigotry in the Charlottesville incident. While they have not exactly mentioned Donald Trump, the President of the US (POTUS) by name, it still remains the latest in line of the rebuke coming the way of Trump after he attempted to defend a far-right rally held in this Virginia city. In their joint statement both father and son – former presidents of the US – have come down hard on phenomena such as “antisemitism and hatred”.
