George W. Bush left office with a dismal 22 percent approval rating, so unpopular that he wasn't even invited to his own party's convention in 2008. But Bush has enjoyed a minor renaissance of late; people applauded when he spoke out for freedom of the press and a "welcoming" immigration policy. But others say Bush doesn't deserve rehabilitation after destabilizing the Middle East. For many, Bush will always be America's worst president ever, and Trump is the superior leader. What do you think?

George W. Bush's refusal to endorse Donald Trump won him some approval, as did this statement to People magazine on Trump's young presidency:

“I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling, and I don’t like the people feeling alienated."

Others point to the quagmire in Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, and Abu Ghraib as just three reasons why Trump is a much better president than Bush.

For many conservatives, Trump is already a far stronger president.

But critics argue Bush at least staffed the government, which Trump has so far failed to do. Bush didn't give his twin daughters West Wing offices, didn't run a business out of the White House, and as far as we know, never grabbed any woman by the pussy.

But decorum and respect for norms aside, others point out that 4,486 U.S. soldiers died in Iraq, as did half a million Iraqi citizens. George W. Bush didn't go on Twitter rants, but many hold him responsible for scores of deaths.

But Bush was president for eight years. Trump's only been in office for six monthsgive him time.
