George Bush Sr calls Trump a 'blowhard' and voted for Clinton

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

"Inside the Extraordinary Relationship Between George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush", H.W. Bush told the author Mark Updegrove in 2016 that he doesn't like Trump.

The comments come two weeks after George W. Bush warned of divisiveness and threats to modern democracy in a sweeping speech that took clear aim at Trump - without ever mentioning him by name. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader".

The elder Bush, Updegrove reported, counseled his son to consider "shaking up the ticket" in 2004, meaning to replace Cheney as his running mate - just as the younger Bush suggested to his father about Vice President Dan Quayle in 1992. He also commented on Trump's "ego". "It was because Donald Trump represented everything that the Bushes abhorred", Mr Updegrove told CNN.

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. The author also revealed that George W. Bush was concerned that he would be the "last Republican president". But George W. Bush's parents were clearly disturbed by the influence of Vice President Dick Cheney and neoconservative advisers.

Bush and George W. Bush have consistently expressed their disagreement with President Donald Trump, through his election and into his presidency.

What he does for the team is fantastic. - Playing football for a striker isn't just about scoring goals - Mourinho. He's untouchable in my team and I think in terms of support from the fans.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders hit back at the former presidents in a statement.

Indeed, at one point during the 2016 presidential campaign, the younger Bush confided to the author, "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president".

They told Updegrove they felt that trait was especially challenging, or even lacking, for Trump. I always liked him, but I didn't like him so much for a while because I thought he hurt George.

The book, "The Last Republican", was written by Mark D. Updegrove with the cooperation of both former presidents Bush and is due to be released November 14 by HarperCollins.

The younger Bush resented the implication that anyone was steering him.

Neither the 41st or 43rd presidents voted for Mr Trump in the election. "Somebody has to be the bad guy".
