George HW Bush on Trump: 'I Don't Like Him'

George Bush says Donald Trump 'doesn't know what it means to be President'

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

Former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush apparently had some harsh words for Donald Trump, according to a new book.

This, despite standard etiquette among former presidents in which they generally refrain from speaking ill of one another. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader".

In a speech on October 19, W. Bush took aim at bullying from public figures, and although a representative said his comments weren't meant to criticize Trump, the current president was embroiled in a feud with a Democratic congresswoman over whether he made an insensitive remark to the grieving wife of a fallen soldier.

The book also revealed that George H.W. Bush doesn't like Trump and called him a "blowhard" when he was running for president.

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.

After Trump said, "I'm my own advisor", Bush quipped: "Wow, this guy really doesn't understand the job of president".

Campaign adviser says Trump listened to Papadopoulos and 'heard him out'
He later acknowledged that he met then-Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak twice during the campaign. Asked if Sessions should amend his testimony before his committee, Grassley told CNN: "I'm looking into it".

"Updegrove reveals for the first time their influences and perspectives on each other's presidencies; their views on family, public service, and America's role in the world; and their unvarnished thoughts on Donald Trump, and the radical transformation of the Republican Party he now leads".

The two men disputed Shakespearean assumptions about father-son rivalries and insisted they remained close throughout the younger Bush's presidency, despite suspicions about a rift over the Iraq War. It also highlights ideological divisions within the Republican Party.

"I voted "None of the Above" for president, and Republican down ballot in 2016", he said of choosing not to support Mr Trump.

The revelations, contained in historian Mark Updegrove's "The Last Republicans", available in bookstores later this month, represent the strongest criticism to date from the Bush clan on why their Republican successor is uniquely unfit to hold office.

"At the time, I think he was concerned that Hillary Clinton would win", Updegrove said in an interview, according to the Times. "I think his heart operation made a difference. And so, this notion that Cheney was making the decisions is ludicrous".
