Bush 41 calls Trump a 'blowhard'; White House strikes back

05 November 2017

In the upcoming book, The Last Republicans, which explores the terms of both Bush presidents, former President George H.W. Bush reportedly calls Trump a "blowhard" and reveals that he voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in last year's elections. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", Bush senior told Updegrove in May 2016. And if you talk to those around him, they have confidence in his leadership.

Previously, Bush had not commented publicly about his thoughts on the Trump era, other than reports he considered the 45th President's inauguration speech was, "some weird s-t".

Updegrove, which will be released later this month, was previewed by The New York Times and CNN on Friday and revealed the former presidents' criticism of Trump, including George W. Bush's fear that he will be "the last Republican president" despite Trump's political affiliation.

President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an America First foreign policy and standing up for the forgotten men and women of our great county [sic]. It also highlights ideological divisions within the Republican Party.

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.

"The Last Republicans" is set to be released on November 14. "But if you look at his values and those shared by his father and Ronald Reagan, they are very much in contrast to the values of the Republican Party today, in particular the platform that Donald Trump ran on, which is essentially protectionism and a certain xenophobia". "Remember that", Trump told his primary opponent, former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
