President Trump ripped former President George W. Bush during a Save America rally last Friday in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, calling him “one of the worst presidents in our history.”
The 45th president continued, “Whether you like him or not, whether you like a Republican or not, he got us into the Middle East – he should be ashamed of himself for what he did.”
Trump also pointed out that Bush “never got us out” of the Middle East, and “neither did Obama get us out.”
“But I got ya out,” Trump said, drawing cheers from the crowd of excited rallygoers.
Trump’s Friday remarks are not the first time that he has criticized the “younger” Bush for his move to send U.S. troops to the Middle East in the early 2000s. In September 2021, the Washington Examiner reported that Trump attacked President Bush’s 9/11 remarks regarding terrorism and violent extremism within the borders of the United States.
In an official statement made through his Save America PAC, Trump said, “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…He shouldn’t be lecturing us about anything.”
Despite rainy weather conditions, Trump supporters showed up by the thousands on Friday in Pennsylvania. Pre-rally speakers included MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza, and Republican candidate for Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seat, Dr. Mehmet Oz.
