Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, people from all over the political spectrum are letting America know how they feel about backing his campaign. Such is the case with former presidents George W. Bush and his father, who said exactly where they stand on the issue, and it could be a good thing for The Donald.
One of the main factors driving the Trump Train has been voters upset with establishment politics and empty promises of change that manifest into nothing more than business as usual in D.C., which is why Trump has taken out 16 other prominent Republican candidates. People are fed up with career politicians, and Trump is their chance at sending a virtual nuke into Washington to finally destroy the apparatus responsible for allowing the likes of Hillary Clinton to remain in politics her entire life.
With that in mind; the fewer establishment politicians that endorse Trump, the better off he’s going to be in the general election, since voters don’t want to see him align with the very people they can no longer tolerate. So while George Bush and his father may think they’re hurting Trump’s chances at becoming president by refusing to endorse him, they’re more than likely giving him a boost among disenchanted voters.
MailOnline has more on the Bush’s refusal to endorse The Donald:
Presidents 41 and 43 said they would not back Trump, despite him becoming the presumptive nominee after his two Republican rivals dropped out of the race for the White House.
Both of the former commanders-in-chief joined a growing list of prominent Republicans who have refused to back Trump’s run for the presidency.
Former President George W. Bush, whose brother Jeb pulled out of the race in February after a string of dismal results, will not be taking part in the campaign whatsoever.
When asked if the most recent Republican president would throw his significant political weight behind Trump, his spokesman Freddy Ford said: ‘President Bush does not plan to participate in or comment on the presidential campaign.’
Former President George H. W. Bush’s spokesman Jim McGrath said: ‘At age 91, President Bush is retired from politics.’
So that’s that. Although it’s not really surprising, considering Trump gave Jeb! the ass-whooping of the century that caused him to drop out of the race.
But it’s quite telling that party elite and GOP power-brokers alike are refusing to get behind Trump’s bid for the presidency. They claim it’s because he’s unqualified for the job, even though he runs a successful multi-billion dollar business, which makes him more qualified than any of the hacks in office now, but the reality is they know that with a Trump administration would come an end to their gravy train and their ability to fleece the taxpayers for their own personal gain.
Finally, Americans have someone who’s actually fighting for them and our beloved nation instead of a political party or big-money donor, and the elites are having a cow. While it’s not surprising that they’re terrified of losing their stranglehold on our government, their reaction to Trump alone is reason enough to cast a vote for him, but then add his qualifications in business, his ability to negotiate, and his refusal to back down to bullies, and he’s likely to be one of the best presidents this nation has ever had, if not the very best.
It’s really too bad that the political establishment is more concerned about keeping its power than turning our nation around. Unfortunately, it’s that very type of thinking that got us here, but fortunately, it’s that type of thinking that’s going to propel Trump to a landslide victory in November.
Mark my words.
