George W. Bush, the 43rd president of United States, was quiet for eight years when president Obama was in office. Now, however, with president Trump in power, it took him just four weeks to join the numerous other critics of Trump.

He said in the beginning of this week that "Here's what I believed when I was president and post-president. The nation needs a free and independent press. Power can be very corrupting, and we need a press to hold politicians to account, including me. I didn't like it sometimes when people said things about me, but that's the job. Power doesn't make you immune to criticism."

In an article with People Magazine he said that "I don't like the racism and I don't like the name-calling and I don't like the people feeling alienated."

He also said that the political climate in Trump's Washington is "pretty ugly", but that he's "optimistic about where we'll end up. /.../ We've been through these periods before and we've always had a way to come out of it. I'm more optimistic than some."

Although it might look at criticism, he felt he needs to explain that "Sometimes my remarks can be construed as criticism. They're certainly not meant to be, and after I finish this book tour you probably won't hear from me for a while."

One could say that Trump has been complaining about the investigation into his possible ties with Russia since the beginning of time. And while he can't be (or at least hasn't been) charged with anything specific yet, he's been found to have lied about his connections with Russians so, so many times that my head's about to blow.
