Bush officials back Biden, want 'robust' discussions again

Two girls protest BushAlumni from the George W. Bush administration have set up a Super PAC to help Joe Biden win the White House but a confidante of President Trump says it shows the corruption in Washington, D.C.

“They cannot get over their bitterness that Donald Trump was voted into office,” says Pastor Robert Jeffress, “and absolutely overturned the Republican establishment.”

Jeffress, who is a spiritual advisor to President Trump, witnessed then-candidate Trump soar past well-known GOP candidates in 2016. Surrounded by seasoned politicians, the trash-talking New Yorker positioned himself as the anti-establishment candidate who promised to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C. only to learn, much later, the Swamp was coming for him.

USA Today, among other national media outlets, reported the PAC plans to reach “disaffected” Republican voters in key states – presumably to urge those voters to choose Joe Biden on Election Day.

Joe Biden and George W. BushThe PAC will concentrate on the swing states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, and Ohio. Trump won all of those states in 2016, delivering an Electoral College victory of 304-227 over Hillary Clinton.

A statement from the PAC said it is important to revive “civil, honest and robust policy discussions.”

Jeffress, meanwhile, has never defended Trump’s trash-talking rhetoric or his sordid past, but the longtime pastor has told OneNewsNow that Trump stood out in 2016 as the only candidate who could defeat Clinton.

As the President’s first term winds down, Jeffress has praised President Trump for vocally supporting the pro-life movement, nominating constitutional judges to the federal courts, and pushing for a stronger armed forces while demanding other countries spend more their own defense forces.

Trump speech in FL PanhandleThere is some irony for former George W. Bush officials to oppose Trump: Their former boss was denounced as “Hitler” by anti-war Democrats marching in the streets, and Hollywood and the national media mocked Bush as a clueless clown. 

“When you get down to it,” Jeffress tells OneNewsNow, “there's probably not a dime's worth of difference between George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush and Joe Biden.”
