Bush said he wrote in Condoleezza Rice for president in 2020 election
Former President George W. Bush said that wrote in his former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice when he voted for president in 2020.
In an interview with People, Bush tells the magazine that he didn’t vote for either Republican Donald Trump or Democrat Joe Biden in November’s election, but cast his vote for Rice.
Bush told Rice that he voted for her, according to People.
“She knows it,” Bush said to People. “But she told me she would refuse to accept the office.”
Rice served as Bush’s secretary of State during his second term as president.
Former President Trump has feuded with the Bush family, repeatedly needling former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush during the 2016 GOP presidential primary.
Former President Bush is doing a spree of media appearances promoting his new book, “Out of Many, One: Portraits of American Immigrants,” which is based on oil paintings by the former president on national figures and migrants.
Bush appeared on NBC’s “Today” on Wednesday where he described the current state of the Republican party as “isolationist, protectionist and to a certain extent nativist.”
