  • Associated Press  file 2016		Former President George W. Bush said Thursday he believes Russia meddled in the 2016 US election

You know there's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled. "Whether they affected the outcome is another question".

"It's problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results".

Although Trump was not mentioned by name, Bush's remarks seemed to target him.

"He's got a chip on his shoulder", Bush said of Putin. "The reason he does is because of the demise of the Soviet Union troubles him".

"Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication", said Bush during a speech in NY last October. That is why most of his actions aim at the return of Soviet hegemony.

Bush in 2008 became the first sitting USA president to visit the UAE. "Putin is a brilliant tactician who has the capacity to detect weakness and exploit it", he said.

In an apparent criticism of the immigration policies US President Donald Trump, Bush called for changes in US immigration rules, saying it was important to recognise that the United States had a history of welcoming people regardless of their religion or where they were born.

In October, Bush said the Russian government "made a project of turning Americans against each other".

Bush was speaking at a summit organized by the Milken Institute, a Santa Monica, California-based think tank. He pleaded guilty in 1990 to six felonies and agreed to pay $600 million in penalties to settle a massive Wall Street fraud case.

Milken, who is a prostate cancer survivor, and his family have given hundreds of millions of dollars away in recent decades.
