Why we didn't vote for Trump - George W Bush family

Why we didn't vote for Trump - George W Bush family

Former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush apparently had some harsh words for Donald Trump, according to a new book. "And I'm not too excited about him being [our] leader".

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". However, unlike his father, George W. Bush did not vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and instead left the top of his ticket blank.

"I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard", former President George HW Bush told historian Mark Updegrove for his upcoming book The Last Republicans, according to CNN.

Both former presidents have candidly voiced concerns about Trump's leadership ability.

Suspect in Japan serial-killer case sought out suicidal people, police say
Takahiro Shiraishi , 27, has admitted killing all eight of his female victims after meeting them on Twitter earlier this year. The paper writes he was already serving a suspended sentence for sex-related crimes when the grim discovery was made.

As he watched Trump's campaign, the younger Bush feared he - Bush - would "be the last Republican president", said the author, who founded the National Medal of Honor Museum this year, after several years as director of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum.

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.

Bush told Updegrove that he worries that he may be the last Republican to hold the office of the presidency. But under Updegrove's analysis of their values and those of past Republican presidents compared to Trump's exhibition of Republicanism, the title still stands. "If they were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won".

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