PJ Morton said he would rather have George W. Bush as president than Donald Trump, the Maroon 5 keyboardist and R&B musician told CNN in an interview.

"I think this is the first time we've had a president and even a candidate to, you know, call Mexicans rapists, to say the judge wasn't able to properly do his job because he's Mexican, asking black people what do they have to lose ... who would have ever thought it would make Bush not be so bad?" he told CNN.

"We'd take President (George W.) Bush in a minute right now," Morton said.

"As crazy as things seemed to be, (Bush) was still a level-headed person who seemed to care and if he didn't care and if he had a racist bone in his body or something like that, it wasn't OK to show that. He wasn't overt."

Morton said he was left dumbfounded when Trump blamed the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on "both sides."

"I think (Trump) shows us who he is over and over and we should believe that. ... That was him. That was non-reading-teleprompter Trump, and that's our guy."
