New Book Claims Bushes Had Harsh Words For Trump

The White House fired back at the Bushes' legacy and the second Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq in the early 2000s. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", Bush senior told Updegrove in May 2016. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. "Because I have a very good brain and I've said a lot of things", said the candidate, who had no diplomatic or military experience.

Bush and George H.W. Bush speak to the crowd before game five of the 2017 World Series between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Minute Maid Park on October 29, 2017 in Houston, Texas.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, neither former president endorsed Donald Trump. More than anything though, the Bushes are concerned that Trump is destroying the Republican Party.

George W Bush, however, said he simply left his presidential ballot blank.

Updegrove said the title of the book came from a conversation he had with the junior Bush in which he said, "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president". "It was because Donald Trump represented everything that the Bushes abhorred". His son has been mostly measured in his public comments of Trump.

"The American people voted to elect an outsider who is capable of implementing real, positive, and needed change - instead of a lifelong politician beholden to special interests", she said.

"This guy doesn't know what it means to be president", he said.

In excerpts from a book about him and his father, The Last Republicans, where the Bushes criticize Trump and claim Dick Cheney "didn't make one fucking decision", the sales pitch is pretty clear: unlike today's GOP, these two were the reasonable, rational, decisive Republicans.

And that's not all - George W Bush didn't vote for Mr Trump either.

"I understand his frustration, because at the time there was the perception that Dick Cheney was the acting president", Updegrove told CNN.

The elder Bush said he voted for Trump's rival Hillary Clinton, a Democrat. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News.

A Bush family spokesman answered questions about Updegrove's book and the White House statement with a simple reply: "No comment, but thanks".
