Former President George W. Bush is worried that Donald Trump could be the end of the Republican Party, media outlets were reporting on Tuesday.

According to Politico Magazine, Bush is worried “that I will be the last Republican president.”

Bush reportedly made the comment at a reunion for his administration in Dallas, Politico reported Tuesday morning.

The Bush family has frequently criticized Trump.

Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, declined to attend the convention, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has refused to endorse Trump.

Jeb Bush was the favorite last year to win the nomination.

As groups of protesters skirmish, police intervene

Police broke up scuffles between groups of demonstrators a few blocks from the Republican National Convention as crowds in the hundreds gathered Tuesday afternoon.

There were no arrests, police said, despite several tense moments that saw officers step in between protesters pushing and shouting at each other during some of the biggest, most raucous gatherings in downtown Cleveland since the four-day convention began on Monday.

One skirmish broke out when right-wing conspiracy theorist and radio show host Alex Jones started speaking in downtown’s Public Square through a bullhorn. Police on bicycles pushed back a surging crowd, and Jones was whisked away.

Minutes later, more officers on bicycles formed a line to separate a conservative religious group from a communist-leaning organization carrying a sign that read, “America Was Never Great.”

Overall, five people have been arrested since the convention started, said police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia.

Clinton likens opening night to scene from ‘Wizard of Oz’

Addressing a large labor gathering in Las Vegas, Hillary Clinton on Tuesday compared the opening night of the Republican National Convention to a well-known scene in the classic movie “The Wizard of Oz.”

There was “lots of sound and fury, even a fog machine,” Clinton said. But “when you pulled back the curtain, it was just Donald Trump with nothing to offer the American people.”

Her comments came early in an address to about 6,000 members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, one of the nation’s largest labor unions, gathered for a conference here.

While the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was greeted enthusiastically, Clinton hardly has a lock on the families such unions represent. Polls have showed one of Trump’s strongest constituencies to be white working-class men.

In her address, Clinton cautioned her audience to be wary of Trump’s claim that he is on the side of working families.

“We heard a lot of anger and division, but we did not hear a single solution that would help working families get ahead,” Clinton said of the GOP convention’s opening night, which she described as “surreal.”

Dozen California staffers sickened with norovirus

The highly contagious norovirus appears to have hit the Republican National Convention.

A dozen California Republican Party staff members, who arrived last week in Ohio ahead of the state’s delegates, have fallen ill with the virus, said Jim Brulte, chairman of the state GOP.

So far, none of the state’s 550 delegates appear to have caught the virus.

“Our best guess is that this came from California,” Brulte said. The first staffer to fall ill infected her spouse.
