George HW Bush blasts Trump in new book: 'I don't like him'

George HW Bush on Trump: He's a 'blowhard'

"I don't like him", Bush, 93, says in the book, according to a review by The New York Times.

"I don't like him. And I'm not too excited about him being (our) leader".

The comments are sure to escalate a long-running feud and come after George W. Bush gave a speech last month that condemned bigotry, bullying and lies in United States politics in what was widely seen as a broadside against Trump even though the president was not mentioned by name.

In an upcoming book being released by historian Mark Updegrove, the elder Bush was quoted calling Trump a "blowhard", while the younger Bush said he doesn't believe Trump knows what it means to be president, adding that he believe he will be the last true Republican president.

Trump had recently had nice things to say about another former president, Jimmy Carter, whom he once called worst president in U.S. history. It also highlights ideological divisions within the Republican Party.

Indeed, at one point during the 2016 presidential campaign, the younger Mr.

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

Once the bombastic billionaire real estate magnate secured the Republican nomination, Bush expressed surprise and anxious about Trump's lack of humility, and thus his inability to recognize his own limitations and surround himself with more knowledgeable people. 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. "Donald Trump is everything that the Bush family is not", Updegrove told CNN's Jamie Gangel.

"At the time, I think he was concerned that Hillary Clinton would win", Updegrove said in an interview, according to the Times.

"If you look at the Bush family, it makes flawless sense".

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

"The Last Republicans" is set to be released on November 14.

The younger Bush, meanwhile, was skeptical about then-candidate Trump's chances in a race in which his younger brother Jeb was an early favorite. He indicated that a president should not "exploit the anger, incite it" but rather "come up with ideas to deal with it".

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.
