During the Republican primaries, things got very heated between Donald Trump and Jeb Bush. As a result, once Trump won the primary, former President George W. Bush refused to endorse him and, in fact, regularly spoke out against him. He then took things a step further by refusing to vote in this election at all, making it clear that he disliked Trump so much that he would turn on his own party.
Thankfully, it now appears he is finally singing a different tune.
This week, George W. and Laura Bush released a statement saying that they WILL attend Trump’s inauguration, adding that they are “pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power—a hallmark of American democracy.”
“President and Mrs. George W. Bush will attend the 58th Presidential Inauguration Ceremony on January 20, 2017, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C,” their statement read. “They are pleased to be able to witness the peaceful transfer of power—a hallmark of American democracy—and swearing-in of President Trump and Vice President Pence.”
Welcome to President and Mrs. Bush. https://t.co/EAuOCzVjri

We’re glad to see that the Bushes have finally gotten onboard with our President Donald Trump!
