“I don’t like him.”
That is how George H. W. Bush feels about the current president of the United States, as written in a passage in an upcoming book named “The Last Republicans.”.
“I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard,” he continued. “And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.”
That is probably how the people felt back in 1992 about Bush Sr.
His son also criticized President Trump.
“You can either exploit the anger, incite it,” George W. Bush said talking about Trump.
“If you’re angry with the powers that be,” he continued, “you’re angry with the so-called establishment, and there’s nothing more established than having a father and brother that have been president.”
They got one thing right: The with, middle class, working American people didn’t want another status quo” Bush presidency after the eight years Obama presidency. These people felt they were ignored by the Republicans who preached financial discipline.
Donald Trump was the last hope the people had of someone who will return the power to the people of America.
“I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president,” said George W. Bush. This was the baseline for Mark K. Updegrove’s book title, and it’s wistful and sagacious one. It slams Bushist elitism and the sense of privilege, anyhow, it views the Republican electorate as incapable of setting the political agenda, hence, unable to define the party.
The Trump electorate isn’t completely conservative and it’s frequently rabidly anti-establishment. And that why it makes conflicts between two groups in the Republican Party, in addition to taking the similar split between the socialist and Clintonite groups of the Democratic Party.
Bush Sr. was worried about this ‘Trump uprising’ that he voted for the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and his son left the ballot empty.
The White House views Bush critiques to be unhelpful.
Sarah Sanders Huckabee stated:
“The American people voted to elect an outsider who is capable of implementing real, positive, and needed change – instead of a lifelong politician beholden to special interests. If they were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won.”
The White House added.
“If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had,” the White House stated for CNN. “And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history.”
The Republican Party electorate is currently fragmented on social conservative matters, and it’s focused on the U.S. economy and protecting its citizens.
“President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an ‘America First’ foreign policy and standing up for the forgotten men and women of our great county,” the White House official added in the statement.
