George W. Bush Wiki
Former President George W. Bush is reportedly not going to back the re-election of President Donald Trump.
Bush, who was the nation’s 43rd president is one of several members at the top of the GOP who are keeping quiet on their support for the incumbent.
What is less clear is whether Bush will end up supporting Biden, according to the New York Times.
Geroge W Bush has not spoken out publicly against Trump
Bush has not spoken out publicly against Trump, but the president tweeted about his predecessor during his impeachment trial.
‘Oh bye [sic] the way, I appreciate the message from former President Bush, but where was he during Impeachment calling for putting partisanship aside,’ Trump wrote on Twitter. ‘He was nowhere to be found in speaking up against the greatest Hoax in American history!’
Dan Bartlett, who served in the Bush White House as counselor to the president told Statesman he hasn’t ‘heard of anything about Bush even contemplating an endorsement and would be surprised if he jumped in on either side.’
It’s a similar view held by Republican book author and expert Mark Updegrove.
