I would say that Bush was arguably a more effective *authoritarian* but the style and substance of the Trump phenomenon is still more akin to fascism. Bush did not have any support from the extreme right, they did not recognize him as one of their own.
It may not be significant in the long term or provide any political cachet, but Trump has definitely inspired paramilitaries and street fighters, this is a hallmark of fascist and proto-fascist politics. This was not a feature of the Bush years.
The reason why Bush was such an effective authoritarian was in part his deep continuity with American political traditions, which allowed liberals to identify with his administration's goals.

Everyone's like liberals just don't like Trump's personality blah blah, because he's crude, no, Trump did made my life materially worse in a number of ways. My life was way better before Trump took office, his stupid bullshit totally wrecked it.
It was psychologically stressful because he clearly was a lunatic and an idiot, and he provoked all sorts of tumultuous events that were additionally stressful and caused personal hardship, and I lost my job. This has been a terrible era.
If you're like "Oh I don't get why people get so worked up about Trump, blah blah blah" my response is "Fuck you."
