George Bush Sr calls Trump a 'blowhard' and voted for Clinton

A new book by Mark K. Updegrove, shows where George H.W. Bush stands when it comes to Trump and it's not favorable. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader".
His son, George W. Bush, who assumed the presidency just over a decade after his father, had similar feelings about Trump.
He also told the author of the book, Mark Updegrove, that he felt Mr Trump ran for the presidency because he had "a certain ego", in remarks reported by U.S. media outlets including CNN and the New York Times.
Both former presidents have candidly voiced concerns about Trump's leadership ability. 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.
Trump recalls little of Russia meeting Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University law school, said he views a perjury case against Sessions as weak. The revelations that Sessions may have made false statements under oath riled many top Democrats, especially Franken.
Trump, who doesn't like them either and shares a complicated relationship with all the living former presidents, will have something to say about it soon enough, given how he prides in his ability to counter-punch.
And both worry that Trump has blown up a Republican Party that they spent two lifetimes building, a party that was once committed to removing boundaries to trade and immigration, promoting democracy and civil society and asserting a robust US leadership role in the world. "At the time, I think he was concerned that Hillary Clinton would win", Updegrove told the Times.
Updegrove said the book title came from a comment made by the younger Bush previous year. He indicated that a president should not "exploit the anger, incite it" but rather "come up with ideas to deal with it".
The two men disputed Shakespearean assumptions about father-son rivalries and insisted they remained close throughout the younger Bush's presidency, despite suspicions about a rift over the Iraq War.
According to the book, neither Bush voted for Trump, with the elder Bush saying he voted for Hillary Clinton.
