Former Florida governor Jeb Bush refuses to support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president, but his son appears to be breaking with the rest of the family.
“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,” George P. Bush said, according to video obtained by the Texas Tribune at a Texas GOP event on Saturday.
Bush, who is the Texas Republican’s victory chairman, did not officially endorse Trump and has not responded to requests for comment. But the 40 year old does appear to have plans for a political future.
His father, however, has repeatedly expressed his frustration with Trump after losing big to the New York billionaire.
“Trump’s abrasive, Know Nothing-like nativist rhetoric has blocked out sober discourse about how to tackle America’s big challenges,” Bush wrote in July in an op-ed for the Washington Post.
