A well-known Republican who grew up in the Hudson Valley blamed Donald Trump for her "heart attack."

In a new biography on Barbara Bush, the former First Lady blames Trump for her heart attack in 2016, according to excerpts published by USA Today.

Bush was 91 in June of 2016 when her long battle with congestive heart failure and chronic pulmonary disease flared up and "hit her like a sledgehammer." It wasn't technically a heart attack, but Bush called it one, according to excerpts.

'The Matriarch: Barbara Bush and the Making of an American Dynasty' is set for an April 2 release. The book also states that Bush was so horrified by President Trump she no longer considered herself a Republican in the weeks before her death in 2018. The book is based off diaries and interviews Bush conducted with USA Today's Washington bureau chief Susan Page.

Bush was born in 1925 in New York City, but was raised in Westchester County. She grew up in Rye and attended Rye’s Milton Public School and Rye Country Day School, according to biography.com

"Growing up in the affluent suburb of Rye, N.Y., Barbara and her three siblings enjoyed many advantages," the Encylopedia Britannica writes.
