Why we didn't vote for Trump - George W Bush family

George HW Bush on Trump: He's a 'blowhard'

But a new book puts that on stark display with former President George H.W. Bush describing the current commander in chief as a "blowhard" and revealing he voted for Hillary Clinton.

"I understand his frustration, because at the time there was the perception that Dick Cheney was the acting president", Updegrove told CNN.

"I don't like him".

The White House on Saturday disparaged the legacies of the only two living Republican presidents to precede Donald Trump, after reports that both men castigated Trump in interviews previous year and refused to vote for him. "And I'm not too excited about him being [our] leader".

"I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard", former President George HW Bush told historian Mark Updegrove for his upcoming book The Last Republicans, according to CNN. But, in fact, George W. Bush had had a lifetime of making bold decisions.

"The American people voted to elect an outsider who is capable of implementing real, positive, and needed change - instead of a lifelong politician beholden to special interests". It also highlights ideological divisions within the Republican Party. "Trump represents the outsider, and the Bush family are quintessential insiders".

These statements were reportedly made before the election. His son has been mostly measured in his public comments of Trump.

His son, George W. Bush, who assumed the presidency just over a decade after his father, had similar feelings about Trump. "How can George W. Bush resurrect his post-presidency career when the sitting president is telling everyone every day how very bad he is?" However, at the time, he thought Bush was more concerned that Clinton would win the presidency, not Trump. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News.
