Washington, Jan 19: Former US President George W. Bush on Friday continued to embrace the role of good guy, with a photo of himself delivering pizzas to his Secret Service and called for the partial government shutdown to end.

George Bush delivers Pizza to unpaid secret service agents amid shutdown

"Laura W. Bush 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," he captioned an image showing himself delivering pizzas on Instagram on Friday.

"And we thank our fellow citizens who are supporting them." The former leader bought his staffers at least six pizzas, he wrote in an Instagram post.

"It's time for leaders on both sides to put politics aside, come together, and end this shutdown," he said.

The message comes as the shutdown, already the longest in history, entered the 28th day on Friday, as President Donald Trump's demand for $5 billion of funding for a border wall has met the harsh political realities of a divided government.
