Jeb Bush’s Son Is First Member Of His Family To Support Trump

Donald Trump finally has a Bush endorsing his White House bid.

According to the Texas Tribune, George P. Bush announced Saturday at a meeting of Republican activists that he is supporting the party’s presidential nominee. He is the Texas land commissioner and son of Jeb Bush, who competed with Trump for the GOP nomination.

CNN noted that the former Florida governor, who frequently clashed with Trump during debates, has refused to endorse the billionaire businessman. Trump accused Jeb Bush of being “low energy,” while Bush called the nominee unfit for the presidency.

In a video recorded by an attendee at the meeting in Texas, George P. Bush is seen declaring: “From Team Bush, it’s a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton.” The grandson and nephew of ex-presidents broke ranks with George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, as well as his father, by lining up behind Trump. Both former commanders in chief boycotted last month’s Republican National Convention to protest the real-estate mogul’s nomination.

Jeb Bush recently told MSNBC News that Trump’s supporters will feel “betrayed” if the candidate wins the November election and fails to fulfill his campaign promises. “There isn’t going to be a wall built, and Mexico’s not going to pay for it, and there’s not going to be a ban on Muslims,” the former governor declared.
