In the new book entitle, "The Last Republication", written by historian, Mark Updegrove, the senior Bush said, "I don't like him". I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. "And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", he remarked.
That statement inspired the title of an upcoming book about George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
The interview took place in May 2016, while Trump was steamrolling his way through a packed field of Republican presidential hopefuls to the nomination. He criticized Trump for his lack of humility, which he said was a guiding force among the Bushes: "As you know from looking at my family, it is a certain heritage, that's what they expect, and we're not seeing that". 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. The White House went on to call Bush's decision to invade Iraq, "one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history". "It was because Donald Trump represented everything that the Bushes abhorred". It's part of his brand.
The criticism isn't really surprising considering that it comes shortly after the younger Bush gave a speech in which he didn't actually name the president but made it abundantly clear he wasn't happy with the current administration.
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. He had just defeated Jeb Bush - the former president's son. It also highlights ideological divisions within the Republican Party.
Trump had recently had nice things to say about another former president, Jimmy Carter, whom he once called worst president in USA history.
"I voted "None of the Above" for president", the younger Bush told the author, according to his book.
George HW Bush said he voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, while his son told Mr Updegrove he did not vote for anyone. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News.
