Former President George H.W. Bush mocked then-candidate Trump as a "blowhard" and voted for a Democratic president, while the younger Bush anxious aloud that Trump would destroy the idea of a Republican president in all but name, according to "The Last Republicans", which is scheduled to go on sale later this month.

"I don't like him", Bush, 93, says in the book, according to a review by The New York Times. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. Last year, neither voted for him - and that meant going against a party they both once led. However, at the time, he thought Bush was more concerned that Clinton would win the presidency, not Trump. However, unlike his father, George W. Bush did not vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and instead left the top of his ticket blank.

Mark Updegrove, the author of the book, talked to both Bushes on the record and they made it clear a year ago they were none too happy about the former reality television star becoming president. The elder Bush was blunt in his critique of then-candidate Trump. The White House went on to call Bush's decision to invade Iraq, "one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history".

The book also has some surprisingly frank reactions by George W. Bush to certain claims, including that his vice president, Dick Cheney, and defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, were the real power brokers in his administration. But under Updegrove's analysis of their values and those of past Republican presidents compared to Trump's exhibition of Republicanism, the title still stands.

Trump had recently had nice things to say about another former president, Jimmy Carter, whom he once called worst president in United States history.
