Laura Bush, wife of former republican president George W. Bush, speaking at the 2016 Women in World Summit in New York City, said that she wanted our next president to be someone who cares about women in Afghanistan and that it was a core issue for her.
While she didn’t come right out and say who she was speaking about, it describes exactly zero republicans, and describes Hillary Clinton perfectly. Clinton visited Afghanistan four times as Secretary of State.
Here is Bush’s entire quote:
“I want our next president — whoever he or she might be — to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will continue U.S. policies … that we continue to do what we’re committed to do as a country.”
“That’s who I want — or the kind of people that will do that and will pay attention to our history, and know what’s happened before and know specifically how we can continue to do the good things that we do around the world.”
I have a hard time believing that Bush wasn’t hinting that she was supporting Hillary Clinton for president, and it seems most of the people in the audience took it that way as well.
Hillary Clinton is the only candidate who will fight to rebuild the region and help women gain rights there. Donald Trump’s foreign policy plans are such a jumbled disaster. There’s no way Laura Bush could have been talking about him.
