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

Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and his son, George W Bush Jr, made stinging comments about President Donald Trump in a new book about the father and son, by Mark Updegrove, titled "The Last Republicans

While the senior Bush said, Trump is a "blowhard." Bush Jr also had harsh words for his Republican successor: "This guy doesn't know what it means to be president."

Both men went on the record to give Updegrove their candid assessment of Trump, as well as rare insight into their thoughts on the 2016 presidential race as the drama unfolded.

“I don’t like him. I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader” the Senior Bush told Mark Updegrove.

Neither the 41st or 43rd presidents voted for Trump in the election. George HW Bush said he voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, while his son told Updegrove he did not vote for anyone.

“I voted ‘None of the Above’ for president, and Republican down ballot in 2016,” he said of choosing not to support Trump.

He went on to say it was “a strange election year”, while his 93 year-old father said he was skeptical of the President’s political motivations, saying he believed he was partly driven by “a certain ego.”

However, the White House has struck back at both Bush presidents.

"If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had," a White House official told CNN. "And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history."

"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," the official said.
