George P. Bush on Supporting Donald Trump

In this presidential election cycle, the family of former presidents George W. and George H. W. Bush has been active in supporting and even fielding candidates. George W. Bush’s brother Jeb was the early favorite in the GOP primaries until his well-funded campaign was torpedoed by Donald Trump (who famously disparaged Jeb’s “low energy” in one of the early Republican presidential debates).

After Jeb dropped out of the race, he and his brother Neil Bush endorsed Texas Senator Ted Cruz while Cruz played second fiddle to Trump during the later primaries. Once Trump won his party’s nomination, Jeb’s other brother Marvin Bush announced that he’d be supporting Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.

Jeb, George W. and George H.W. Bush have said they would not support Trump under any circumstances, becoming prominent members of the “#NeverTrump” faction that still holds sway among Republican Party elites. It’s growing increasingly likely that they will back Johnson as well in the 2016 election.

Jeb’s son George P. Bush, however, is another story.
