Well?…. We know the Bush family have no love Donald Trump….
But George W. Bush did say nice things about Donald Trump campaign…….
Former President George W. Bush on Sunday congratulated President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their election.
“I extended my warm congratulations and thanked him for the patriotic message he delivered last night,” Bush said in a statement, referring to his conversation with Biden. “I also called Kamala Harris to congratulate her on her historic election to the vice presidency.”
Bush’s congratulations come as many congressional Republicans have yet to publicly acknowledge Biden as the incoming president. News networks and The Associated Press called the race for Biden late Saturday morning after the Democrat was projected to win Pennsylvania, putting his campaign over the Electoral College threshold of 270 votes.
That means Biden will become the nation’s 46th president in January, while Harris will become the first woman, Black woman and Asian American woman to serve as vice president.
Acknowledging that he and the incoming Democratic president “have political differences,” Bush said he knows Biden “to be a good man, who has won this opportunity to lead and unify our country.”
Bush said he also extended to Biden the same offer he gave to his successors, Barack Obama and Donald Trump: his prayers for success and a pledge to help in any way he could.
Trump has had a tense relationship with the Bush family. He branded former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida as “low energy” during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, blamed George W. Bush for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and mocked his father, former President George H.W. Bush, for his “thousand points of light” volunteerism program. George W. Bush didn’t support the president’s reelection…..
