Report that Bush won't support Trump reelection 'completely made up,' spokesman says | TheHill
George W. Bush's spokesman said Monday that The New York Times report that the former president won't support President Trump's reelection was "completely made up."

George W. Bush's spokesman said Monday that The New York Times report that the former president won't support President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcBath, Handel to face off in Georgia House rematchTrump thanks George P. Bush for his support: 'Great honor'Trump Jr.'s Mongolia hunting trip cost K in Secret Service protectionMORE's reelection was "completely made up."

Spokesman Freddy Ford told The Texas Tribune that the Times's report, which cited people familiar with Bush's thinking, was false, but that Bush will avoid speaking publicly on his 2020 presidential vote.

"This is completely made up," Ford said. "He is retired from presidential politics and has not indicated how he will vote."

The Times report also said Bush's brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), who was one of Trump's 2016 primary rivals, is unsure of how he will vote in the upcoming presidential election.

Ford had told the Times that the former president would not get involved in the elections and would only speak out on policy issues like he did last week when he said during massive protests against police brutality the U.S. must "examine our tragic failures."

Both Bush brothers, as well as their parents, former President George H.W. Bush and first lady Barbara Bush, said in 2016 that they weren't voting for Trump.

Trump had endorsed Jeb Bush's son George P. Bush in his reelection for Texas Land Commissioner in 2018. George P. Bush did not endorse his father's 2016 presidential run before the former Florida governor dropped out of the race.

The Saturday Times article reported that several Republican leaders are struggling with whether to endorse Trump's second term or throw their support behind presumptive Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Do you have a link (from a reliable source) showing Bush's exact words when he stated he is supporting Trump's re-election? I'd like to see his exact words when he made that statement.

Some fuzzy general staterement that could be interpreted eith way doesn't count-- I would like to see a clear staement he made supporting Trump's re-election.

TIA!

Who the hell ever said that?

THE NEW YORK TIMES LIED ABOUT BUSH "WON'T SUPPORT TRUMP!"   Bush never said any such thing. So instead of trying to turn it around - It's on the Times and you to back up the Times claim.

I'll wait.

Lets start with the original story.   Give us verifiable proof he said what they reported in the first place.

You don't get to jump past the story being bullshit from the start but i'm sure you'll keep trying

The lack of integrity on display here by some is a sad, sad commentary on what some try to spin as truth

Bush got outed. The Times story never said he had publicly spoke on the election. It said he had made it known he was not supporting Trump.  Someone who works for or is friends with George W Bush spilled the beans about private conversations. Bush has little choice but to say it isnt true , or he will face the wrath of Trump, which Bush is not looking for as he enjoys his privileged post politics retirement.

Ahhh - another of those "unnamed sources/sources close to Bush" proofs of context.

Excellent choice of sources/facts John.

If you do I'd like to interest you in buying the Brooklyn bridge.

Who knows but its certainly more possible than him supporting Biden who is basically a political polar opposite.

Do YOU think Bush will support Biden for re-election?

If you do i have some nice waterfront property to sell you in Death Valley

I don't think he will support anyone. Now how about answering my question?  Who spilled the beans?

"the Times's report, which cited people familiar with Bush's thinking"

The standard for the New York Times continues to be unnamed, unknown sources. 

George W Bush has done well as a retired president staying away from the political fray.
