Earlier, the former president called on Democrats and Republicans to unite in the face of a “common threat” from the Coronavirus.
U.S. President Donald Trump criticized former President George W. Bush on Sunday after he called on both parties to join forces to fight the Coronavirus epidemic.
“Let us remember how small our differences are in the face of this common threat,” Bush said in a three-minute video posted on Twitter on Saturday. – In the end, we are not party combatants. We are people who are equally vulnerable and equally beautiful in the eyes of God. We rise or fall together, and we will surely rise.
In a Sunday tweet, Trump condemned Bush for not supporting him during an impeachment trial earlier this year.
No one has ever heard him speak out against the greatest fiction in American history!” – he wrote.
Trump’s Twitter was a reaction to Fox News anchor Pete Hegsett’s comment, who wondered why Bush hadn’t proposed to put party affiliations aside during the impeachment proceedings.
he House of Representatives impeached Trump last December, accusing him of demanding that Ukraine launch an investigation into the activities of its political rival Democrats. In February of this year, the Senate ruled to acquit the president.
