Former President George W. Bush told aides he’s worried he may be the last Republican to live in the White House. He made the remarks at an April reunion for staff of his administration that included former Vice President Dick Cheney.
“I’m worried,” Bush told the group, “that I will be the last Republican president.”
The remarks illustrate a divide between Donald Trump — the party’s presumptive presidential nominee — and establishment figures like Bush nervous that Trump’s brash talk will alienate future voters and preclude political victories. Donald Trump, who will officially become the Republican nominee on Tuesday, has done little to inspire renewed confidence since.
