The White House challenged criticisms made against President Donald Trump by former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, and questioned the "legacy" of each, The Hill reported Saturday.

"If one Presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had," the White House said in a statement, CNN initially reported. "And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history."

"President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an America First foreign policy and standing up for the forgotten men and women of our great country," the statement continued.

In a new book, "The Last Republicans," both Bushes offered damning criticism of Trump's presidency. The elder Bush called Trump a "blowhard" and admitted he voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

"I don't like him," George H.W. Bush wrote in the book. "I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader."

And George W. Bush, who also admitted he didn't vote for the president, opting instead for "none of the above" at the ballot box, claimed Trump "doesn't know what it means to be president." He said he also feared he would be "the last Republican president."
