Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon slammed former President George W. Bush Friday, calling his presidency the most "destructive" in the history of the United States.

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sought to deny the speeches were targeting Mr Trump. Trump's former adviser said Bush "embarrassed himself" with a "high falutin" speech that was written for him. Former President Barack Obama also made a veiled swipe against Trump at campaign rallies in New Jersey and Virginia.

Bush also spoke at an event hours earlier on Thursday in NY, hosted by his George W. Bush Institute, where he outlined what he said were "new and serious threats" to democracy. "It's clear he didn't understand anything he was talking about..." "He has no earthly idea of whether he's coming or going, just like it was when he was president of the United States". "Bush-for-'destructive'-presidency">everything that is wrong with the Republican Party today. Though he didn't mention President Donald Trump directly, he criticized a political system he says opposes globalization and is vulnerable to conspiracy theories and lies. "This means people of every race, religion and ethnicity can be fully and equally American", Bush said.
