George W. Bush will not support the re-election of Donald Trump, according to people familiar with his thinking, the New York Times reported Saturday.

Former President George W. Bush won’t support the re-election of Mr. Trump, and Jeb Bush isn’t sure how he’ll vote, say .

The paper quoted "people familiar with their thinking" to say the former president and Texas governor won't vote for Trump's reelection and that his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, "isn't sure how he'll vote." The paper spotlights several members of the Republican Party who are dissenting from party lines, though Bush was the only prominent Texas politician mentioned. Freddy Ford, a spokesman for Bush, did not respond to Tribune requests for confirmation but told the New York Times that Bush would steer clear of speaking publicly on the race for president.

It is unclear whether Bush will be voting for Joe Biden, Trump’s Democratic rival.
