Former President George W. Bush has revealed who he voted for in the 2020 election.
And it wasn’t for then President Donald Trump or current President Joe Biden.
Instead, Bush wrote on behalf of Condoleezza Rice.
“She knows it,” Bush told People magazine in an interview published Thursday. “But she told me she would refuse to take the job.
Rice was Bush’s secretary of state from 2005 to 2009.
She is now director of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
Also in the interview with People, Bush sought to clarify his criticism earlier this week of Trump-era Republicans, whom he described on the “Today” show as “isolationist, protectionist and, to a certain extent, nativist ”.
“Really what I should have said – there are strong voices that are isolationist, protectionist and nativist, something, by the way, that I talked about when I was president,” said the 43rd president, who has made multiple media appearances this month to promote his new art book, “Out of Many, One: Portraits of Immigrants in America.”
“My concerns (are) about these -isms,” he added, “but I painted with a brush that was too wide … because by saying what I said, it excluded a lot of Republicans who believe we can fix the problem. ”
