The American intelligence community concluded that Russian Federation was behind the hacking of Democratic groups and other activity in the 2016 election in an effort to help elect Donald Trump.

Bush said on Thursday that "there's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled" in the 2016 US presidential election.

Numerous investigations are under way to determine whether Mr Trump's campaign aided the Kremlin in its efforts.

In 2008 Mr Bush became the first sitting USA president to visit the UAE. After a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Hanoi, Vietnam, in November, Trump said Putin was "sincere" in his denials. As president-elect, he conceded for the first time previous year that Russian Federation had carried out cyberattacks against the Democratic Party during the election but denied that it was meant to help him win.

On "The Ingraham Angle", Laura Ingraham said Trump should wear this criticism from Bush as a "badge of honor".

"There are people willing to do jobs that Americans won't do", he said.

Mr Bush also said that the United States needs to reform its immigration law. "But there are people who want to put food on their family's table and are willing to do that". "We ought to say thank you and welcome", Bush said.
