A report on Sunday by The New York Times claimed that three prominent RINOs — Colin Powell, Sen. Mitt Romney, and former President George W. Bush (okay, 2.5 RINOs) — were not going to support President Donald Trump in November and were instead going to cast a ballot for Sleepy Joe Biden.
“Former President George W. Bush won’t support the reelection of Trump, and Jeb Bush isn’t sure how he’ll vote, say people familiar with their thinking,” The New York Times reported on Saturday. “Senator Mitt Romney of Utah won’t back Trump and is deliberating whether to again write in his wife, Ann, or cast another ballot this November. And Cindy McCain, the widow of Senator John McCain, is almost certain to support Biden but is unsure how public to be about it because one of her sons is eyeing a run for office.”
Well, Romney joined George Floyd demonstrators on Sunday to embarrass Trump and members of his own party. Powell voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. So that just leaves former President Bush.
And his spokesperson is pushing back against the Times report, calling it false.
'This is completely made up,' Bush's spokesman Freddy Ford said in an email according to the Texas Tribune. 'He is retired from presidential politics and has not indicated how he will vote.'

Is that a flat-out denial that Bush won’t support Trump? No, but given the Times’ terrible track record in reporting on Trump fairly and accurately, it wouldn’t surprise us if the paper ‘fudged’ to include the former president on a list of RINOs who can’t get over their disdain for a president who’s a helluva lot more conservative than any of them.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
