  • George W. Bush ‘I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president

Before Donald Trump won the presidency, former President George W. Bush reportedly said in private: "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president".

But Trump, who has made more than 1,300 false or misleading claims in less than a year and nearly constantly insults his many rivals, did win the presidency.

"I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard".

Drawing extensively on exclusive access and interviews with both Bush presidents, Updegrove reveals for the first time their influences and perspectives on each other's presidencies; their views on family, public service, and America's role in the world; and their unvarnished thoughts on Donald Trump, and the radical transformation of the Republican Party he now leads.

The book also has some surprisingly frank reactions by George W. Bush to certain claims, including that his vice president, Dick Cheney, and defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, were the real power brokers in his administration. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", he remarked.

Mark Updegrove, the author of the book, talked to both Bushes on the record and they made it clear previous year they were none too happy about the former reality television star becoming president.

"It allows us to understand how much a renegade Trump is in the Republican Party", he said. He had just defeated Jeb Bush - the former president's son.

These statements were reportedly made before the election.

Trump had recently had nice things to say about another former president, Jimmy Carter, whom he once called worst president in U.S. history.

In 2016 George W. Bush lamented privately that he might be "the last Republican president". But, she wrote, if voters "were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won".
