Texas Attorney General Candidate George P. Bush said that he is very supportive of former President Donald Trump and his policies. In an interview with “Fox News Primetime” Wednesday Bush is currently Texas land commissioner discussed his 2022 run to unseat current Republican attorney general Ken Paxton.
“The fact is that in 2016 I was one of the first statewide elected officials to come out and support [Trump],” said Bush.
“I raised a million and a half in support of Republican candidates with him at the top of the ticket. It was a high watermark for Republican Party politics in the state of Texas,” continued him.
“In 2020 I boldly declared that Trump was the only thing standing between our country, the American people, and socialism. And lo and behold, I turned out to be correct with over $30 trillion in total spending, $6 trillion in just next year’s annual budget. So when you look at my policies, I’m all about America first. Trump is the center of the Republican Party. I am my own man. I support him. And we need to carry on that legacy and capture the lightning that he brought to the Republican Party so that we can help all of our fellow Republicans down ballot.”
