George Bush Sr and Jr, two former USA presidents, have never liked Donald Trump, and now they have gone on record with their blunt assessment of him, calling him a "blowhard" who doesn't know what it means to be the president of the country.

Harper Collins says this about the book, it "tracks the two Bush presidents from their formative years through their post-presidencies and the failed presidential candidacy of Jeb Bush, derailing the Bush presidential dynasty".
The author went on to ask George H.W. Bush what he thought Mr Trump was seeking in running for president, and the former Navy war hero responded by saying that Mr Trump had "a certain ego".

Neither of the former Republican Presidents voted for Trump..
A White House official reportedly told CNN that "if one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had". Donald Trump's election marked the end not only to the Bushes' hold on the White House, but of a rejection of the Republican principles of civility and global engagement and leadership that the Bushes have long championed.
"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. "As you know from looking at my family, it is a certain heritage, that's what they expect, and we're not seeing that" in Trump. "George Bush grew up thinking about the greater good".
