Former Presidents George Bush Sr. and Son Bush Jr. Will Not Endorse Donald Trump as a Presidential Candidate
Neither Bush will support Donald Trump or any other candidate.
The Bush family is keeping quiet on the 2016 presidential election.
“President Bush has no plans to participate in or comment on the presidential campaign,” Bush Jr.’s personal aide Freddy Ford told PEOPLE about the younger of the two.
Meanwhile, Bush Sr. will also steer clear of the ongoing race for the White House.
“At age 91, President Bush is retired from politics,” spokesman Jim McGrath told PEOPLE about the 41st president. “He came out of retirement to do a few things for Jeb [Bush], but those were the exceptions that proved the rule.”
Donald Trump Has the Internet Going Wild
While neither has chosen to support a candidate this time around, Bush – the 43rd president – has actively endorsed candidates in the past five election cycles, the Texas Tribune reports.
