It's no secret that Donald Trump is not well liked by some in the Republican Party. While Trump has had a war of words with current members of the GOP, it's two former Republican presidents that are now speaking out.

Bush on Trump

Following eight years in office, George W. Bush left the White House in January 2009 with a record low approval rating as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan took their toll on the nation. In addition, the financial collapse of 2008 put further pressure on the GOP, which carried over into the presidential election and helped push Barack Obama to victory.

As Bush handed over the reigns to the new Democratic president, the Republican Party was primed for a new direction. Like his father before him, Bush excited the presidency on a down note and leaving much to be desired for the party in the future. However, over the next eight years, the far right Tea Party movement took control of the GOP and became a metaphorical brick wall for Obama and the Democrats during that time. By the time Obama was ready to leave office, the Tea Party movement morphed into the current leadership in the form of Donald Trump. With Trump in the White House, the old guard is not pleased, though many have remained silent. According to CNN on November 4, both George H.W.

Bush and George W. Bush are not fans of the current commander in chief.

In an upcoming book titled "The Last Republicans," historian Mark Updegrove dug deep into George H.W.

Bush and his son, George W. Bush. When the issue of Donald Trump was brought up, neither man was impressed. "I don't like him. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard," the elder Bush said of the former host of "The Apprentice." "I'm not too excited about him being a leader," the former president added during a sit-down interview that was recorded in the spring of 2016, but made public to CNN this week.

As far as George W. Bush goes, the former president was surprised that Donald Trump was able to win the election, but thinks he doesn't have what it takes to be the leader of the free world. "As you know from looking at my family, (humility) is a certain heritage," he said, while stating, "That's what they expect, and we're not seeing that." In addition, the younger Bush was quoted as saying, "Wow, this guy (Trump) doesn't know what it means to be president." Both men also came clean with who they voted for in 2016 election, with H.W.

Bush supporting Hillary Clinton, and W. Bush leaving his presidential choice unchecked.

Moving forward

With the release and promotion of "The Last Republicans," the two former Bush presidents have gone on the record to speak out against Donald Trump. It was well known that Jeb Bush wasn't a fan after the controversial Republican primary in 2016, and it appears that the rest of the family is right there with him in his opposition.
