Former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush did not vote for Donald Trump. But the rumors flying around that the Bushes cast their votes for Hillary Clinton are being denied by a Bush spokesperson, according to breaking media reports.
In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, the spokesperson declined to say whether the former president and first lady had voted for a third-party candidate or whether they had written in another name. Although reports apparently erroneously claimed that the Bushes had voted for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, the failure to vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump is in itself a major departure from political tradition.
Although the elder President George H.W. Bush has been rumored to support Clinton, there’s no information on how he and Barbara Bush actually voted.
