Jeb Bush’s son George P. Bush urges uniting behind Trump
The #NeverTrump movement has seen a powerful defection in the person of George (aka Jorge) P. Bush, the articulate, handsome, half-Hispanic son of Jeb Bush. This is significant because there has been talk for years that George P. Bush was a likely presidential contender in the next generation of the Bush dynasty. A reconciliation between the perceived leading light of the next Bush generation and the Trump camp could foretell an eventual entente.
David Mark of CNN reports:
Jeb Bush is resolutely #NeverTrump but his son, George P. Bush, no longer is.
George P. Bush, the Texas land commissioner, is breaking with his father, a former Donald Trump Republican primary rival, to back the GOP nominee. George P. Bush's move comes after a nasty Republican primary battle in which Trump repeatedly mocked Jeb Bush, a former Florida governor, as "low energy," among other insults.
The Texas Tribune reported Sunday that at a Saturday gathering of Texas Republican activists Bush said it was time to unite behind Trump in his fall campaign against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
"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," Bush said, according to video made by an audience member.
