Both Bush presidents bash 'blowhard' Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency

Former President George W. Bush also spoke ill of the current president, saying: "This guy doesn't know what it means to be president", CNN reported.

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

The book's title was inspired by the younger Bush's concerns that he had been "the last Republican president" - not just because Clinton was seen as favorite to win the election, but because Trump represented a major break from traditional conservatism.

The most critical comments about Mr Trump came from the elder Mr Bush, now 93, who told Mr Updegrove in May 2016, "I don't like him. And I'm not too excited about him being (our) leader".

In the last week's Thursday game, No. 20 Stanford was almost upended by Oregon State, still seeking its first conference win. Bryce Love has been the focal point of the offense with 1,387 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground.

Bush didn't mention Trump in his speech on October 19, but he seemed to be referring to the current president's policies when he talked about "nationalism distorted into nativism" and a forgetting of "the dynamism immigration" has brought to the U.S.

The release of the book comes weeks after the younger Bush delivered a speech seen as a rebuke of Trump's approach to the presidency and the world.

Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush said "bigotry seems emboldened" and "our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication". But now, their disdain for the 45th president has been made very clear.

Even so, the author said that George H.W. Bush was careful not to interfere when his son became President.

The pair's comments come from a new book, titled The Last Republicans. The elder Bush spent eight years in Ronald Reagan's administration as vice president and four years in the oval office as president, while the younger Bush was president for eight years. Like his father, the son disregarded the advice. "I do think he was different", she said.

Updegrove said the book title came from a comment made by the younger Bush previous year.

When asked his thoughts on George W. Bush's fear, Updegrove told CNN, "There's no question that I think there's a battle for the soul of the Republican Party". I wasn't that fond of him.

The younger Bush resented the implication that anyone was steering him. He added that Cheney and Donald H. Rumsfeld, his defense secretary, "didn't make one f-- decision". "I understand the way the system works", he said.
