Speaking at a summit in Abu Dhabi, the first sitting USA president to visit the UAE in 2008, Bush had plenty to say.

Bush said it wasn't clear if Russia's "meddling" directly affected the election, though he said it was clear they tried. "Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results", he later added.

Although he did not mention the current president, Donald Trump, by name, Bush seemed to criticise the president's decisions on immigration, as well as for trying to get closer to Russian Federation.

Regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is suspected of knowing or guiding the cyber attacks during the election, Bush said he "does not think how both sides can win, but always thinks how to win and the other side to lose ". "The reason he does is because of the demise of the Soviet Union troubles him".

Putin, said, "The press is constantly, looking for weakness," said the former president.

Bush insisted on the need to support North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and other United States alliances with other countries. That is why North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is so important, "said the former U.S. president. We ought to say thank you and welcome", Bush said.

In an apparent criticism of the immigration policies of U.S. President Donald Trump, Bush called for changes in U.S. immigration rules.

"America is their home", Bush said, referring to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, more commonly known as "dreamers". "They've got to get it fixed".

"Our system is broken, but we have got to fix it".
