The Bush Family Is Using the Trump Era to Attempt a Rebrand

Former Presidents Bush reveal in new book they didn't vote for Trump

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

Neither the 41st or 43rd presidents voted for Mr Trump in the election. And if you talk to those around him, they have confidence in his leadership. His son, George W. Bush, didn't go as far as to vote for a Democrat but allegedly left the presidential ballot blank and now says Trump has no understanding of how to be president.

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. The book earned its title from comments George W. Bush made during the last 2016, when he said he fears that he will be the last GOP president.

Updegrove said the title of the book came from a conversation he had with the junior Bush in which he said, "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president". "And I'm not too excited about him being [our] leader".

And George W Bush, who served in the White House from 2001 to 2009, reveals he voted for "none of the above" because he believes the billionaire businessman lacks humility and a necessary understanding of what it means to be president.

"President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an "America First" foreign policy and standing up for the forgotten men and women of our great county", the official said.
In October, George W. Bush gave a speech in which he didn't mention Trump but lamented these same vices - and politics that "seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication".




It is rare in the modern political era to see former presidents to openly criticize their successors.

A Bush family spokesman answered questions about Updegrove's book and the White House statement with a simple reply: "No comment, but thanks".

Gee Mr Bush, tell us how you really feel.

Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush make the play ball announcement before Game 5 of baseball's World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017, in Houston.

And not only did the Bush presidents lament the prospect of a Trump presidency in 2016, Updegrove wrote that they also shunned their party's nominee on Election Day.
