Bush Sr. Voted for Clinton, called Trump a 'blowhard'

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.

Discussing Trump, the elder Bush was blunt in his assessment, saying, "I don't like him".

"I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard".

Previously, Bush had not commented publicly about his thoughts on the Trump era, other than reports he considered the 45th President's inauguration speech was, "some weird s-t".

Spanish judge orders arrest of ousted Catalan leader: La Vanguardia
He is believed to be in Belgium, where he and some aides fled after the Spanish government removed them from office a week ago. The separatist majority of Catalonia's Parliament voted in favor of a declaration of independence on October 27.

His son, George W Bush, said he worries that "I will be the last Republican president", even though President Trump is a Republican.

The book, titled "The Last Republicans", will be published on November 14 by HarperCollins.

Updegrove said the title of the book came from a conversation he had with the junior Bush in which he said, "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president".

A presidential dogfight erupted Saturday between the Trump administration and a pair of former commanders-in-chief.

Former Trinamool leader Mukul roy joins BJP for change; TMC indifferent
As we all know that the BJP is growing at a fast pace in Bengal, Roy's induction will strengthen the party in the state. Roy, a founder member of the Trinamool Congress, quit the party on September 25.

In this endearing, illuminating work, presidential historian Mark K. Updegrove 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. Bush confided to the author, "I'm anxious that I will be the last Republican president".

"I voted "None of the Above" for president, and Republican down ballot in 2016", he said of choosing not to support Mr Trump.

Barack Obama, who has been more directly under fire from Trump, had recently hit back by speaking of the return of "politics of division that we have seen so many times before that dates back centuries".

"At the time, I think he was concerned that Hillary Clinton would win", Mr. Updegrove, the author of several books on the presidency, said in an interview.

The declaration was the first time anti-India groups such as LeT and JeM were compared to the IS by the grouping. Earlier in June, China insisted that India provide "solid evidence" against the Jaish-e-Mohammed chief.

The younger Bush also pushed back hard on the widely-held perception during his time in office that his vice president Dick Cheney and secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld controlled the White House from behind the scenes. "I think his heart operation made a difference". I wasn't that fond of him. "Somebody has to be the bad guy".
