George W Bush spokesman Freddy Ford revealed that the pic was taken on Friday in Florida, but he did not specify the location. Freddy Ford also said, “He is buying meals for Secret Service agents on his detail as a small way, however insufficient, to show his gratitude for their hard work without pay during the shutdown .”
George W Bush did not face a single government shutdown during the eight years he was president.
As the shutdown enters its 29th day on Saturday, the Secret Service personnel are among the hundreds of thousands who are not being paid.
According to the latest report, nearly 6,000 Secret Service agents are currently without a paycheck.
The shutdown has sparked the protests across the US, with it affecting a range of the tourist attractions and government services from the national parks to the domestic violence shelters
Trump has shown no sign of bringing the crisis to an end as he continues to clash with his Democrat opponents over funding for his proposed southern border wall, despite 800,000 federal employees having been off work since 22nd December.
In the month of December, George W Bush was also in news headlines when he handed former first lady Michelle Obama a mint or cough drop at his father’s funeral.

@LauraWBush and I are grateful to our Secret Service personnel and the thousands of Federal employees who are working hard for our country without a paycheck. And we thank our fellow citizens who are supporting them. It’s time for leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown.
