New Book Claims Bushes Had Harsh Words For Trump

Son George W. Bush also gets in on the criticism, believing that Trump "fans public anger and came to office without any understanding of the job", according to the report.

"I don't like him".

Updegrove got the title from a comment by the younger Bush during the 2016 election, "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president".

The release of the book comes weeks after the younger Bush delivered a speech seen as a rebuke of Trump's approach to the presidency and the world.

Former President George H.W. Bush has openly criticized President Donald Trump, calling him a "blowhard" in a new book, CNN reported.

Neither of the two Republican former presidents voted for Mr. Trump - the father voted for Hillary Clinton and the son voted for "none of the above", as he told Mr. Updegrove.

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

"And it wasn't just about Hillary Clinton becoming president, as the Republican Party was having a hard time finding itself".

The book, titled "The Last Republicans", will be published on November 14 by HarperCollins. "George Bush grew up thinking about the greater good".

The Last Republicans offers revealing and often moving portraits of the forty-first and forty-third presidents, as well as an elegy for the Republican "establishment", which once stood for putting the interests of the nation over those of any single man.

Once the bombastic billionaire real estate magnate secured the Republican nomination, Bush expressed surprise and anxious about Trump's lack of humility, and thus his inability to recognize his own limitations and surround himself with more knowledgeable people.

Addressing a conference in New York, Bush decried what he called the "nativism" of today's policies and the "casual cruelty" of today's politics. His son has been mostly measured in his public comments of Trump. But now, their disdain for the 45th president has been made very clear. He had just defeated Jeb Bush - the former president's son.

In the end, the younger Bush concluded it was "a unusual election year", and told Updegrove both candidates were "among the few in the country" who made each other "viable".

"George W. Bush described his relationship with Clinton, according to Updegrove, saying: "'In my presence, she was polite ... thoughtful", he said, but alluding to her using a private email server as secretary of state, he added, "obviously tangled up in bad judgment.

When asked his thoughts on George W. Bush's fear, Updegrove told CNN, "There's no question that I think there's a battle for the soul of the Republican Party". I always liked him, but I didn't like him so much for a while because I thought he hurt George. "I think he pushed things a little too far right". "The fact that there was any doubt in anyone's mind about who the president was blows my mind", he said. "Obviously, we can make mistakes, but that one was a beauty".

But he insisted Cheney served him well and said the vice president's sometimes dark reputation was inevitable.
