George HW Bush said to have called Trump a 'blowhard'

Bush and George W. Bush have consistently expressed their disagreement with President Donald Trump, through his election and into his presidency. "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president", the younger Bush told Updegrove at one point during the campaign. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", he said, according to CNN's report. And if you talk to those around him, they have confidence in his leadership.

"I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president", George W. Bush confided to to the author.

In an upcoming book being released by historian Mark Updegrove, the elder Bush was quoted calling Trump a "blowhard", while the younger Bush said he doesn't believe Trump knows what it means to be president, adding that he believe he will be the last true Republican president.

Criticism between the Bush family and President Trump has gone both ways. "George Bush grew up thinking about the greater good".

Updegrove said the title of the book came from a conversation he had with the junior Bush in which he said, "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president".

He went on to say that the current president is driven by a "certain ego" rather than civic duty. But under Updegrove's analysis of their values and those of past Republican presidents compared to Trump's exhibition of Republicanism, the title still stands.

"I voted "None of the Above" for president, and Republican down ballot in 2016", he said of choosing not to support Trump. But, she wrote, if voters "were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won".

Trump had recently had nice things to say about another former president, Jimmy Carter, whom he once called worst president in U.S. history.
