Former President George W. Bush used to joke in 2018 that Trump made him look “pretty good,” according to a Republican source.
The former Republican president used to regularly knock Trump’s administration, a source told National Journal in 2018.
“Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: ‘Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn’t it?’ ” National Journal reported.
Bush in 2018 “He’s shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can’t get their act together,” the source added. “He wants the guy to succeed but thinks a lot of his problems are self-inflicted.”
