Barbara Bush Had Some 'Nasty' Criticisms of Trump. Here's What He Had to Say About It

'I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be.

This 18 April 2009 file photo shows former U.S. first lady Barbara Bush during the third inning of a Major League Baseball game in Houston.

"I hit him very hard in South Carolina", Mr. Trump said in the interview. "So sad", Bush wrote about Trump back in 1990, according to the book, which was written based on the former first lady's diaries.

Meanwhile, on April 5, Trump said he is weighing an economic penalty in addition to tariffs to counter the smuggling of drugs from Mexico into the United States.

Page's book noted that Bush's scorn for Trump apparently went back decades.

President Trump said he understands why former first lady Barbara Bush, who died last April, leveled harsh criticism of him in a newly published biography after he openly mocked her sons during his 2016 presidential campaign.

During the race, Trump used George W. Bush's presidency as a talking point to criticize his brother.

Since missing the first 38 games of the season after undergoing right hip/core muscle surgery, he has played in 39 games. The Trail Blazers are 50-and-28 on the season and one half game back of the Rockets for third in the Western Conference.

A new biography of Bush, "The Matriarch", by USA Today's Susan Page, contains a number of attacks on the president's character, both in her interviews with Page and also in her journals, which were provided to Page.

Trump campaigned against needless involvement in foreign wars and used President George W. Bush's decision to invade Iraq as a prime example.

"I hit him very hard in SC", he said. Coming into the 2016 race, Jeb Bush was considered among the front-runners for the Republican nomination, but after he had a disappointing showing in the SC primary - due in no small part to Trump's repeated attacks during the campaign - he dropped out of the race. "Remember? He was supposed to win SC and I won it in a landslide".

Barbara Bush told Page that she never thought Trump would win the general election against Hillary Clinton. Of course, she never sent that letter because she woke up on November 9, 2016 "and discovered, to my horror, that Trump had won".

Bush also said Trump's politics caused her angst to the point of heart troubles, according to the book, and pushed her away from the Republican party, which she refrained from embracing in her last months of life.

George H W Bush and George W Bush - Trump stood for rudeness, global isolationism and weak leadership in the eyes of the Bushes, according to CNN.
