President Trump says he isn't surprised to hear that the late Barbara Bush viewed him as a "symbol of greed," the Washington Times reports.

"I have heard that she was nasty to me, but she should be. ... Look, she's the mother of somebody that I competed against. Most people thought he [Jeb Bush] was going to win and he was quickly out."
