NYT: Mitt Romney and George W. Bush Won’t Support Trump 2020



*Update: 6/9/20: George W. Bush spokesman, Freddy Ford, says the NYT article that says Bush won’t support Trump in 2020 is ‘completely made up‘.

I’m not sure this news will have the effect that media outlets are thinking it will. Many of this President’s supporters say President Trump was hired to do this job not only as a result of Barack Obama but also as a result of Republicans like Mitt Romney and George W Bush.

The New York Times reported:

“Former President George W. Bush won’t support the reelection of Trump, and Jeb Bush isn’t sure how he’ll vote, say people familiar with their thinking,”

Mitt Romney also said he won’t back Trump and may just write in his wife, Ann, or possibly vote for someone else.

In another piece of expected news, Cindy McCain (John McCain’s wife) is said to be all but sure to support Biden but careful about going public with it because….

One of her sons is thinking about running for office. This kind of political theatre is exactly why Trump was elected.

William H. McRaven, a retired Navy Admiral, also said he won't be supporting President Trump in the 2020 election. He went on to praise wartime leaders, like George W. Bush, who "inspired" people with words.

McRaven, making his first public comments opposing Trump’s election in an interview on the 76th anniversary of D-Day, noted that those wartime leaders inspired Americans with “their words, their actions, and their humanity.”

Remember back to January 2009, as Barrack Obama took over, when Bush said he wasn't going to play politics anymore and would not criticize a sitting president?

Those days are over. Bush has subtly accused President Trump, without naming him, of bigotry and permission for cruelty.

Trump responded to Bush:

“Oh, by the way, I appreciate the message from former President Bush, but where was he during impeachment calling for putting partisanship aside.” Trump wrote on Twitter in May. “He was nowhere to be found in speaking up against the greatest Hoax in American history!”

  1. Bush and Romney always love the status quo. Why? Because they have no vision, guts, or common sense. It’s all politico’s for them. Kiss ass is their motto!

  2. Here’s a question: Mitt Romney, George Bush, Cindy McCain, William McRaven — who are they? They are individuals — most no longer in any position of importance (McRaven, Bush) or never were (McCain) – so they are nothing more than individual voters. I really can’t see that any of their opinions matter any more than other individual voters.

  3. I am totally disappointed in George W Bush. He would rather have Joe Biden as our President? It is time
    he gets over his anger and puts his Country first. Do you really want your grandchildren growing up in a socialist
    country? Trump may be a lot of things, but he has done more for our country in ways that really count, despite
    the vilification of the press. I think you know a little about that. They gave you a pretty hard time but nothing
    in comparison to what they have done to Trump. What about all the American people who voted for you and still
    believe the values of the conservatives. Do you throw all of that away and disappoint all those who supported you?
    You are letting us down.

    1. Hi Steve – This was updated on 6/9 at the top of the article when that information became public.Thank you.

  4. I am so Proud of you for standing up to this clown. You are a Good Man!! We should vote on Character NOT by Party!!

  5. It was the American people that elected President Trump.not you politions. I’ve been a democrat my adult life.

    I did not vote for you, Mitt or Obama in the 2012 election, both of you belong to the same do nothing club.

    President Trump has done more in the last three and half years for the American people, than all you slugs in congress! All you people in congress have done over the last twenty five years is work for lobbyist and foriegn countries. Sending our jobs over seas, ect.

  6. I have confidence in the President and his advisors who support and stand by him and America because they were hired to do that! By far, he has been a most active and hard-working leader that we have had in a long time. No one is perfect; he tries hard and I believe he loves America and all of its people! I pray that if he is re-elected, it will be a better four years for him and our beloved free country with less malice toward him and all of our citizens, etc. May we all come together soon and behave like mature adults with ability to control our tongues and tempers causing less violence and discrimination toward others. The past is history; look at Rome, Greece, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Africa, Central America, Mexico, etc., etc. People pay enormous bucks to visit their historical sites that they have preserved for others to see. Why are some Americans so narrow minded that they can’t also face the truth about our history including its good, bad and evil times. What are we going to do? Fight for eternity over what has been? Think about it folks! Life is too short! Love one another and be kind to all!

  7. What a disappointment to all those who supported and voted for them in the past in addition to betraying the Republican Party. Such a shame and a major blow to the Republican Party. Perhaps they should officially sign up with the Democratic Party. How unfortunate since Romney and Bush USE to be highly respected. Now, they are simply known as DESERTERS.
