George HW Bush on Trump: 'I Don't Like Him'

Former Presidents Bush reveal in new book they didn't vote for Trump

George HW Bush on Trump: He's a 'blowhard'

Before Donald Trump won the presidency, former President George W. Bush reportedly said in private: "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president".

Updegrove dives into the complexities of the father and son relationship and also reports on their opinions of President Donald Trump.

The criticism isn't really surprising considering that it comes shortly after the younger Bush gave a speech in which he didn't actually name the president but made it abundantly clear he wasn't happy with the current administration. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", the elder Bush said in May 2016, according to the New York Times.

The White House on Saturday disparaged the legacies of the only two living Republican presidents to precede Donald Trump, after reports that both men castigated Trump in interviews a year ago and refused to vote for him.

George W. Bush told Updegrove that he was surprised Trump won the nomination and presidency. After Carter said Trump was being given a hard time by the media, the latter thanked him by tweeting his thanks for the "nice remarks ..." His son, George W. Bush, didn't go as far as to vote for a Democrat but allegedly left the presidential ballot blank and now says Trump has no understanding of how to be president.

Trump reportedly no longer trusts advice from son-in-law Jared Kushner
Thanksgiving could be pretty tense at whatever Trump golf resort the first family chooses to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Trump's approval rating at 38 percent - the lowest for the survey since February, when he was a month into his presidency.

Upon learning this, Updegrove wrote, George W. Bush thought to himself: "Wow, this guy really doesn't understand the job of president".

One of the key differences, according to the former presidents?

So the historian wasn't surprised to see Trump's old campaign feuds embroil his White House in 2017, though he had to think back more than half a century to cite a comparable example. A representative said his comments weren't meant to criticize Trump.

Harper Collins says this about the book, it "tracks the two Bush presidents from their formative years through their post-presidencies and the failed presidential candidacy of Jeb Bush, derailing the Bush presidential dynasty".
