An introspective President Trump told the Washington Times on Thursday that he wasn’t surprised by some of former first lady Barbara Bush’s posthumous comments about him in the new book “The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of a Dynasty.”

“I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be. Look what I did to her sons,” he told the Washington Times.

In the book, by USA Today reporter Susan Page, Bush calls Trump the “symbol of greed” and blamed him for a heart attack she suffered in 2016. She also told Page after Trump was elected that she no longer considered herself a Republican.
