Both Bush presidents worry Trump is blowing up the GOP

Air Force One with U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump onboard arrives at the U.S. Yokota Air Base on the outskirts of Tokyo Sunday Nov. 5 2017

A new book by Mark K. Updegrove, shows where George H.W. Bush stands when it comes to Trump and it's not favorable.

"I don't like him", the elder Bush told Updegrove in May 2016 before the elections in November of that year, according to excerpts of the book obtained by AFP. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", he said, according to CNN's report.

"I don't like him". Rather than being motivated by public service, Bush said, Trump seemed to be driven by "a certain ego".

The historian told the network that when Trump claimed he was his own adviser, George W Bush had said, "Wow, this guy doesn't know what it means to be president".

The first father-and-son to hold the presidency since John Adams and John Quincy Adams, the Bushes' dislike for Trump may have had some root in his treatment of the son and brother of the presidents., Jeb Bush, during the campaign.

Mark Updegrove, the author of "The Last Republicans", told CNN: "It makes flawless sense".

On Not Being Scared of a Halloween Attack
The inevitable next attack has lingered in the back of every New Yorker's head since 2001, since 1993, even since 1948, when E.B. First Lady Melania Trump, who was in Manhattan when the attack occurred, said: 'My heart breaks for NYC today.

George W. Bush told Updegrove that he was surprised Trump won the nomination and presidency.

Barack Obama, who has been more directly under fire from Trump, had recently hit back by speaking of the return of "politics of division that we have seen so many times before that dates back centuries". The two men, who served in the White House for a combined 20 years, revealed their assessment of the new commander-in-chief and the state of the Republican Party under his leadership in a new book. "At the time, I think he was concerned that Hillary Clinton would win", Updegrove told the Times.

The book, titled "The Last Republicans", will be published on November 14 by HarperCollins.

Just last month, George W. Bush delivered a speech that seemed to call out so-called Trumpism - and the bigotry, conspiracy theories and "casual cruelty" associated with it.

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

"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". He added that Cheney and Donald H. Rumsfeld, his defense secretary, "didn't make one f-- decision".
