Author Susan Page composes in her approaching tome, entitled The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of an American Dynasty, that the previous very first woman had a clock in her bed room that counted down the days, hours, minutes and seconds that Trump had actually left in workplace.
A pal talented the clock to Bush as a joke following Trump’ s 2016 success, Page kept in mind in an adaption of her book that USA Today released Wednesday.
“ It rested on her night table, where she might see it every day. It existed to the day she passed away, ” composed Page. Her book is slated for an April 2 release.
Page had access to Bush’ s individual journals and performed many interviews with the previous very first woman in the 6 months prior to her death, aged 92, in April 2018.
Bush composed in her individual journal in 1990 that Trump was the “ genuine sign of greed in the 80s, ” per Page. Trump ’ s election win left the previous FLOTUS frightened, she kept in mind.
Page likewise detailed how Bush blamed Trump’ s 2016 project attacks on her child (then-GOP governmental confident Jeb Bush) for triggering her “ angst ” which led to her hospitalization.
Bush did not choose Trump or his Democratic competitor Hillary Clinton, rather deciding to compose Jeb Bush’ s name on the tally. Her hubby, previous President George H.W. Bush, nevertheless, chose Clinton. It was “ the very first time in his life that he had actually cast a tally for a Democrat for president, ” composed Page.
By February 2018, Bush informed Page that she would “ most likely state no ” to being asked if she considered herself to be a Republican.
