  • George W. Bush ‘I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president

Former President George H.W. Bush has openly criticized President Donald Trump, calling him a "blowhard" in a new book, CNN reported.

Discussing Trump, the elder Bush was blunt in his assessment, saying, "I don't like him. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader".

"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.

George W. Bush, who told CNN he believes there is a "battle over the soul" of the GOP, told the author, "you know, I fear that I will be the last Republican president".

During the 2016 presidential campaign, neither former president endorsed Donald Trump. "Donald Trump is everything that the Bush family is not", Updegrove told CNN.

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".

"And it wasn't just about Hillary Clinton becoming president, as the Republican Party was having a hard time finding itself".

A new book on the two Bushes who served in the White House provides a glance at their apprehension over Trump's rise to power and what it means for the country.

"I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president", he told the author.

But in the new book, George Bush Sr confirmed that he voted for the rival party's candidate in Hillary Clinton.

As could be expected, the White House didn't stay quiet as the New York Times and CNN revealed details included in The Last Republicans, a book that is scheduled to be released on November 14.

This, despite standard etiquette among former presidents in which they generally refrain from speaking ill of one another.

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.

Bush and George H.W. Bush speak to the crowd before game five of the 2017 World Series between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Minute Maid Park on October 29, 2017 in Houston, Texas. "And so, this notion that Cheney was making the decisions is ludicrous".
