Trump is the Center of this Party: George P. Bush Continues to Throw Dad Jeb Under The Bus [VIDEO]
Plenty of prominent Republicans have been willing to follow Donald Trump. The members of the Bush family, however, aren’t among them. Neither George H.W. Bush or George W. Bush ever endorsed him. And Jeb Bush, who ran for the Republican nomination against Trump in 2016, clearly loathes him.
There is one ambitious Bush, though, raving about the former president. George P. Bush, son of Jeb, has reportedly broken his father’s heart with his Trump support. During a Wednesday night appearance on Fox News, George P. continued to gush about Trump, calling him the “center of the party.”
The Texas Attorney General hopeful told Fox News’ Tammy Bruce, “I’m my own man. The fact is that in 2016 I was one of the first statewide election officials to come out and support him. I raised a million and a half in support of Republican candidates with him at the top of the ticket.”
Bush continued, “And in 2020, I boldly declared that Trump was the only thing standing between our country, the American people, and socialism. Trump is the center of the Republican party. I’m my own man. I support him. And we need to carry on that legacy, capture the lightning that he brought to the Republican party so that we can help all of our fellow Republicans down-ballot.”

When asked about his father, Bush responded, “We’re just like any American family, in that we have our differences of opinion. I just have my own vision, my own plan, my own track record here in Texas.”
