Secretary of State during her eight years in the White House.

“She knows I did.” Said George W. Bush, who particularly criticized the Republican millionaire who defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016.

When the result was still being challenged by Trump, saying the vote was “fundamentally fair” and with a “clear result.”

George W. Bush, who hurriedly issued a statement four years ago, made it clear: “I offered him the same offer that I made to Presidents Trump and Obama: My prayers for his success and my commitment to help in any way possible.” He did not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.
