New Book Claims Bushes Had Harsh Words For Trump

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

George H.W. Bush simply considers Trump a "blowhard" while his son, George W. Bush, thinks he has no concept of what being president means.

"I don't like him", Bush, 93, says in the book, according to a review by The New York Times. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", he remarked.

Bush Sr., who voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, thought Trump seemed to have "a certain ego" but initially had hopes that he could unite the country if he possessed a sense of "humility". Bush and George W. Bush have consistently expressed their disagreement with President Donald Trump, through his election and into his presidency.

Mark Updegrove, the author of the book, talked to both Bushes on the record and they made it clear previous year they were none too happy about the former reality television star becoming president.

British PM calls US Trump over attack in New York - May's office
Investigators found thousands of ISIS-related propaganda images and videos on Saipov's cellphone, the complaint said. A law enforcement official said Kadirov was a friend of Saipov's and may not have any role in the case.

Both former presidents have candidly voiced concerns about Trump's leadership ability. "Donald Trump is everything that the Bush family is not", Updegrove told CNN's Jamie Gangel.

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. It also highlights ideological divisions within the Republican Party.

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.

A White House official hit back, telling CNN: "If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had".

National Football League pizza sponsor Papa John's blames $70mn loss on anthem protests
The CEO refused to take a knee (take a knead?) and instead blamed the National Football League anthem protests. They praised Schnatter for distancing the pizza brand from the NFL.

"You can either exploit the anger, incite it", George W. Bush told Updegrove, "or you can come up with ideas to deal with it".

That inspired the title of the book - which will be published November 14 by HarperCollins - as a quote that seemed to carry a double meaning.

George W. Bush, on the other hand, left the top of his ballot blank because he didn't want to vote for Clinton, saying that she has "bad judgment". "And so, this notion that Cheney was making the decisions is ludicrous".
