George W. Bush Gave Max Donations to Anti-Trump Republicans Cheney and Murkowski in 2021

For several decades, former presidents avoided criticizing their predecessors. It was both a professional courtesy and an acknowledgment of just how complex the job is.

George W. Bush largely remained silent during the rise of Donald Trump. The Bush family was upset with Trump’s treatment of Jeb, but there was neither condemnation nor praise. According to a new report from Politico, though, the 43rd president is attempting to hurt Trump in other ways.

The piece reveals that Bush gave maximum donations to anti-Trump Republicans Lisa Murkowski and Liz Cheney in 2021. Trump has gone on the attack against both women, vowing to find strong primary contenders to take them on. The 43rd president gave $5,800 to Cheney in October and $2,900 to Murkowski in December.

And while Bush hasn’t spoken out against Trump publicly, it was clear that he was thinking about Trump during an address given on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” Bush said. “But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit. And it is our continuing duty to confront them.”
