Former President George W. Bush often jokes that President Donald Trump’s White House makes his own former administration look “pretty good,” a Republican source close to the Trump administration told National Journal.
“Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: ‘Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn’t it?’ ” National Journal reported.
“He’s shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can’t get their act together,” the source added. “He wants the guy to succeed but thinks a lot of his problems are self-inflicted.”
A representative for Bush did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
The former president has stayed largely tight-lipped when it comes to criticizing Trump.
