Two months after Jeb Bush proudly announced to no one that he wasn’t voting for Donald Trump, George P. Bush broke away from his father on Saturday, asking Texas Republicans to support the Republican nominee without directly naming Trump.
“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,” said Bush, the eldest son of the man who lost, in a video obtained by The Texas Tribune.
Appointed as the Texas GOP’s victory chairman in May, Bush has faced criticism for not endorsing Trump since he became the presumptive nominee. In June, Bush told the Austin-American Statesman he was “not in a position” to do so due to “concerns about his rhetoric and his inability to create a campaign that brings people together.” Apparently, Trump has sufficiently addressed those fears.
