Bush: 'pretty clear evidence' that Russian Federation meddled in 2016

US President Donald Trump

The former 43rd President of the US added that there was "clear evidence" about "Russians meddling" in the 2016 USA presidential election which incumbent Republican President Donald Trump won against Democrat opponent Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Bush said on Thursday that the usa needs to "welcome" immigrants and thank them for doing the "jobs that Americans won't do".

He added: "It's problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system".

Bush also said Russian President Vladimir Putin has a "chip on his shoulder".

Yameen's administration defied the top court's order last week to release the prisoners, and Monday asked the court to revoke it. Security forces also on Monday arrested the country's former president Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, the ex-president's spokesman said.

Trump has repeatedly denied any "collusion" with Russian Federation.

In 2001, Bush famously said that he looked in Putin's eyes and "was able to get a sense of his soul" calling him a man who was "deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country". "That's why North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is very important".

During a December rally in Pensacola, Florida, on the eve of the Alabama Senate election, the president castigated the North Atlantic Trade Organization (NATO) as helping Europe "a hell of a lot more than it helps" the U.S.

The United States has to reform its immigration laws, he said.

The White House did not immediately comment on Bush's remarks, CNBC reports.

The Republican also spoke out in defense of young people brought into the U.S.by their parents and who now face deportation after Trump abruptly ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Though Bush has avoided explicitly criticizing the Trump administration, he has voiced veiled opposition toward the president's "America First" platform. "We ought to say thank you and welcome", Bush said.

Bush was speaking at a summit organized by the Milken Institute, a Santa Monica, California-based think tank.
