9/27/16, "50 Former Bush Administration Alums – Including Donald Rumsfeld – Endorse Trump," Daily Caller, Alex Pappas
"More than 50 alumni of the George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush GOP
presidential administrations — including former Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld and White House press secretary Ari Fleischer — have formed a
coalition to express support for Republican presidential nominee Donald
It comes amid reports that George H.W. Bush might be voting for
Democrat Hillary Clinton in the general election. Neither George W. Bush
nor his brother, Trump primary rival Jeb Bush, have endorsed Trump in
the race. Some former Bush administration officials, like former
Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez, are backing Clinton.
Others who have joined the coalition include former U.S. Attorney
General John Ashcroft, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, former
Treasury Secretary John Snow, former director of the Office of National
Drug Control Policy Bill Bennett, former White House political director
Matt Schlapp and former Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi.
Here is the full list of those who joined the coalition.
The group is asking other former Bush officials to join them by filling out a form on a website.
That petition cites the “need for bold leadership, a strong national
defense, sound economic policy and a Supreme Court committed to preserve
the freedoms framed in the Constitution.”
“Americans want to trust our leaders again, to know that they are
fighting for everyday Americans by creating jobs, growing our economy,
defending our nation from terrorism, and respecting the voters enough to
be straightforward and honest with them,” said said former Health And
Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson. “Donald Trump and Mike Pence
will put America first, and make our country great again.”"
