George W. Bush stabbed Donald Trump in the back with this letter to Joe Biden
When Donald Trump won the GOP nomination in 2016, he displaced the Bush family as the head of the Republican Party.
The Bushes fumed and waited for their chance at revenge.
And now George W. Bush stabbed Donald Trump in the back with this letter to Joe Biden.
After the media falsely described Joe Biden as the President-elect, former President George W. Bush issued a statement congratulating Biden on his win.
“I just talked to the President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden. I extended my warm congratulations and thanked him for the patriotic message he delivered last night. I also called Kamala Harris to congratulate her on her historic election to the vice presidency. Though we have political differences, I know Joe Biden to be a good man, who has won his opportunity to lead and unify our country,” Bush wrote.
Even though Donald Trump is contesting the election results in several states and the results are not certified, Bush incorrectly claimed Biden won the election.
This move struck Trump supporters as a slap in the face.
In 2000, when Al Gore spent 36 days litigating the results in Florida, Bush and everyone on his team would have pitched a fit if someone claimed Al Gore really won the race and was President-elect.
But in his statement, Bush did bow to political reality and acknowledge that by turning out over 71,000,000 voters, Donald Trump was the leader of the Republican Party now and for the foreseeable future.
“I want to congratulate President Trump and his supporters on a hard-fought campaign. He earned the votes of more than 70 million Americans – an extraordinary political achievement. They have spoken, and their voices will continue to be heard through elected Republicans at every level of government,” Bush added.
