Laura Bush suggested that if the general election came down to a contest betweenHillary Clinton and Donald Trump, she would likely vote for her fellow former first lady.
“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 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… that we continue to do what we’re committed to do as a country,” she said.
“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.”
Bush’s comments were made Friday at the “Women in the World” summit in New York City and reported on by the Telegraph.[h/t NY Daily News]
