The white house responded to the criticism of Bush.
NEW YORK, November 4. /TASS/. A White house spokesman in response to criticism of the American leader Donald trump from ex-US presidents George Bush and George Bush Jr. criticized their political heritage and stated that the war in Iraq was one of the biggest mistakes in American history.
This is stated in the article, posted Saturday on the website of TV channel CNN.
Previously, he published an interview with historian Marc Updegrove — author of the book “the Last Republicans”, written on the basis of conversations with Bush. Updegrove notes that during the presidential race in the United States in 2016, a senior and a Junior Bushey spoke very negatively about trump, has said that he is not suited for the post of President. In addition, they reported that did not vote for trump for election.
“If one candidate could split a political party, it says a lot about how a lasting legacy actually left the last two presidents from her. And it starts with the war in Iraq — one of the biggest mistakes in foreign policy in the history of America”, — quotes the CNN review of the White house on this. Trump represents the Republican party. Senior and younger Bush were the last two presidents-Republicans to trump.
The book “the Last Republicans” is expected to go on sale in the U.S. on November 14. Official representatives of both Bush confirmed that the former American leaders talked with Updegrove.
In the presidential race of 2016 in the U.S. one of the opponents trump was the former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush, another son of George H. W. Bush. In November 2016, trump said that he received congratulations on his election victory from a number of Republicans that refused to support him. Among them he called Bush senior and his two sons.
