George Bush Sr dislikes Trump

George Bush Sr dislikes Trump

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.

"I don't like him", George H.W. Bush told Updegrove before the election, according to the book. His son, George W. Bush, didn't go as far as to vote for a Democrat but allegedly left the presidential ballot blank and now says Trump has no understanding of how to be president. "And I'm not too excited about him being [our] leader".

"I don't like him".

In excerpts from a book about him and his father, The Last Republicans, where the Bushes criticize Trump and claim Dick Cheney "didn't make one fucking decision", the sales pitch is pretty clear: unlike today's GOP, these two were the reasonable, rational, decisive Republicans.

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".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders hit back at the former presidents in a statement. "And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history".

Kid Rock says he is not running for Senate in MI
During an appearance on the Howard Stern Show this morning (Oct. 24), Kid Rock directly addressed the rumors. F- no I'm not running for Senate! "I'm going on tour , too-which no one's going to print".

"This guy doesn't know what it means to be president", he said.

Last month George W Bush gave a speech in NY that appeared to be a sweeping, yet thinly veiled critique of the Trump administration, its policies, and the President's blunt style.

As the previous Republican president before Barack Obama took office, he told the author: "You know, I fear that I will be the last Republican president".

"We should have never been in Iraq", Trump continued.

A White House official told CNN, in response to the Bushes' comments, "If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had".

George W Bush, adding to his remarks that Mr Trump "doesn't know what it means to be president", said "you can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it".
