Former President Trump has feuded with the Bush family, repeatedly needling former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush during the 2016 GOP presidential primary.

Former President Bush is doing a spree of media appearances promoting his new book, "Out of Many, One: Portraits of American Immigrants," which is based on oil paintings by the former president on national figures and migrants.

Bush appeared on NBC's "Today" on Wednesday where he described the current state of the Republican party as "isolationist, protectionist and to a certain extent nativist."

Immigration thrust a new facet to troubled Bush reputation .
Out of office for a dozen years and still castigated for his "war on terror," former US president George W Bush has resurfaced as a passionate immigration advocate just as his Republican Party careens in the opposite direction. The 74-year-old Texan, whose disastrous invasion of Iraq and failure to implement immigration reform helped give rise to Donald Trump, is enjoying a resurgence of sorts in the aftermath of Trump's erratic tenure.
