A spokesman for the former president George W. Bush and his wife, Laura Bush, said they didn’t vote for Donald Trump. Trump also did not have the endorsement of George W. Bush’s father, George H.W. Bush, Mitt Romney, and John McCain.
Some early reports indicated that both of the former Presidents were going to vote for Clinton. It was not immediately known for who the Bush’s cast their ballots. Jeb Bush has said he would not vote for Trump.
Bob Dole, the failed Republican presidential candidate in 1996, was the only past nominee to remain loyal to the Republican party– he endorsed of Trump.
OUR FREE OPINION
Although none of the Bushs are likely to run for political office again, their decision to abandon the Republican party speaks volumes about their commitment to the party all along. The Bush family should be renounced by the Republican party in the future.
