'The Last Republicans' Highlights Former Presidents' Wariness Of Trump

"And I'm not too excited about him being a leader", Bush senior told Updegrove in May 2016.

"I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard". And if you talk to those around him, they have confidence in his leadership.

The historian told the network that when Trump claimed he was his own adviser, George W Bush had said, "Wow, this guy doesn't know what it means to be president".

In light of Trump's anti-trade, anti-immigration agenda that runs counter to decades of GOP dogma, George W. Bush feared he would be seen as the "last Republican president", a quote that gave the book its title.

Trump had recently had nice things to say about another former president, Jimmy Carter, whom he once called worst president in U.S. history. "Donald Trump is everything that the Bush family is not", Updegrove told CNN.

The younger Bush stated that he believes Trump came into office with no idea what he was getting himself into and said his tactics are destroying the Republican Party.

And both worry that Trump has blown up a Republican Party that they spent two lifetimes building, a party that was once committed to removing boundaries to trade and immigration, promoting democracy and civil society and asserting a robust USA leadership role in the world.

George W. Bush, on the other hand, left the top of his ballot blank because he didn't want to vote for Clinton, saying that she has "bad judgment".

The Last Republicans offers revealing and often moving portraits of the forty-first and forty-third presidents, as well as an elegy for the Republican "establishment", which once stood for putting the interests of the nation over those of any single man.

Bush and George H.W. Bush speak to the crowd before game five of the 2017 World Series between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Minute Maid Park on October 29, 2017 in Houston, Texas.

The elder Bush, Updegrove reported, counseled his son to consider "shaking up the ticket" in 2004, meaning to replace Cheney as his running mate - just as the younger Bush suggested to his father about Vice President Dan Quayle in 1992.
