Watch: Former President Bush didn’t condemn Trump – but he did warn against these threats

What happened?

Former President George W. Bush warned about nationalism and the rising resentment against immigrants in a speech in New York on Thursday.

No, he didn’t blame Trump – but what did he really say?

Liberals have been praising Bush’s speech as a slam against President Donald Trump, but he never mentioned Trump’s name or the administration. They also seem to have missed when he talked about the dangers of socialism later in the speech.

Here’s what he said:

“There are some signs that the intensity of support for democracy itself has waned, especially among the young, who never experienced the galvanizing moral clarity of the Cold War, or never focused on the ruin of entire nations by socialist central planning. Some have called this ‘democratic deconsolidation.’ Really, it seems to be a combination of weariness, frayed tempers, and forgetfulness.”

Glenn’s take:

Protectionism, nationalism, isolationism: These are the things that Bush was warning us against in his speech.

“They have never ever been a part of American success,” Glenn said on today’s show. “We want to share our values, our principles and our prosperity. That’s what makes us great.”
