Former President George W. Bush’s camp is countering a New York Times report that claimed Bush gained’t vote for President Trump in November — calling it “utterly made up.”
The report printed Sunday described how members of the Republican institution together with the two-term former president, his brother former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, former Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell and John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain, had been not backing Trump and, in some instances, voting for Democratic opponent Joe Biden.
Freddy Ford, a spokesman for Bush, stated the report was merely not true.
“This is utterly made up,” Ford stated in an e-mail to the Texas Tribune. “He is retired from presidential politics and has not indicated how he’ll vote.”
Powell over the weekend stated he could be endorsing and voting for Biden.
