While neither mentioned Donald Trump by name, Bush gave a speech in NY expressing concern that "bigotry seems emboldened" in a climate of cruel rhetoric and nativism, while Obama referred to the "politics of division" and "folks who are deliberately trying to make folks angry" at Democratic campaign stops in New Jersey and Virginia. In it, George W. Bush says, "People are hurting down here". The 93-year-old elder Bush suffers from a form of Parkinson's disease and appeared in a wheelchair at the event. "Now, as we begin to rebuild, some of America's finest public servants are spearheading the One America Appeal".
Jim McGrath, spokesman for former president George H.W. Bush, confirmed the figure Saturday.
The five living former US presidents made a rare appearance together on stage on Saturday night at a fundraiser for those affected by recent hurricanes that struck Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
They have joined together to raise money after devastating hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Those standing in line told KBTX that seeing five living former presidents under one roof is a once in a lifetime opportunity. His father, George H.W. Bush, then replies, "We love you, Texas".
President Donald Trump did not attend the concert, but praised the effort in a video message released earlier, terming it a "wonderful" and "vital effort".
The concert starts at 7 p.m. CDT.
