Both Bush presidents bash 'blowhard' Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency

Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush have never been close to or openly amicable with President Donald Trump. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader" the senior Bush told historian Mark Updegrove, for his new book The Last Republicans.

"I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard". 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 ..."

He then added, Trump seems drive by "a certain ego". The book earned its title from comments George W. Bush made during the last 2016, when he said he fears that he will be the last GOP president.

Trump had recently had nice things to say about another former president, Jimmy Carter, whom he once called worst president in USA history. Donald Trump's election marked the end not only to the Bushes' hold on the White House, but of a rejection of the Republican principles of civility and global engagement and leadership that the Bushes have long championed.

This is not the first time that the younger Bush has criticised the United States president. It also highlights ideological divisions within the Republican Party.

Updegrove said the book title came from a comment made by the younger Bush previous year.

A new book on the two Bushes who served in the White House provides a glance at their apprehension over Trump's rise to power and what it means for the country.

In "The Last Republicans", Mark K. Updegrove chronicles an era that feels nearly dated in today's reality-show politics, when the Republican establishment controlled the party and Washington, and when a single family could occupy the presidency and vice presidency for a combined 20 years.

"At the time, I think he was concerned that Hillary Clinton would win", Updegrove said in an interview, according to the Times.

"If you look at the Bush family, it makes ideal sense". George HW Bush said he voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, while his son told Mr Updegrove he did not vote for anyone. He had just defeated Jeb Bush - the former president's son. "George Bush grew up thinking about the greater good".

The younger Bush also pushed back hard on the widely-held perception during his time in office that his vice president Dick Cheney and secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld controlled the White House from behind the scenes.
