George HW Bush Openly Criticizes Trump in New Book

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.

"If one Presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had", the White House wrote to CNN. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader" the senior Bush told historian Mark Updegrove, for his new bookThe Last Republicans.

"And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history", the official said.

The younger Bush had earlier described Donald Trump's inauguration speech in March as "some weird s**t".

Mr. Bush went on record along with his father, George HW Bush, to discuss their thoughts on Mr Trump as part of a new book about the pair.

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.

"I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard", the elder Bush continued.

George W. Bush didn't expect Trump to win the general election, Updegrove told CNN in an interview about the book.

"You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it", the 43rd president said, explaining that Trump never had real solutions.

Trump stood for rudeness, worldwide isolationism and weak leadership in the eyes of the Bushes, according to Updegrove - reservations echoed by many establishment Republicans. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication. A representative said his comments weren't meant to criticize Trump.

This is not the first time that the younger Bush has criticised the USA president.

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