Questions Are Asked About Former First Lady Laura Bush Possibly Supporting Hillary Clinton Over Donald Trump

News has already surfaced of several Republicans who will either stay home on Election Day or vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Some are implying that former First Lady Laura Bush, wife of George W. Bush, may be included in that category.

At last week's Women in the World summit, Bush detailed the qualities she thinks makes a good presidential candidate. She said, “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."

She went on to say that the candidate should “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.” She did not mention any names, but some news outlets have speculated that she was referring to Hillary Clinton who has worked to help improve the lives of women in developing countries while serving as Secretary of State.

She went on to say, the U.S. has a tendency “to become sort of isolationist and xenophobic. I understand that Americans are angry and frustrated but we do not need someone in the Oval Office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration.”

She did not mention a name, but her statement can be considered a comment on Donald Trump, who has been criticized as exploiting voters’ anger and frustration. A spokesperson for the former First Family denied speculation that Bush was supporting Hillary Clinton. Their spokesperson told CBS, “They are definitely trying to make this into something it isn’t.”
