The former president and Trump's former opponent weighed in on Twitter
Former Republican president George H.W. Bush and his son Jeb—once the frontrunner for the 2016 Republican nomination—congratulated president elect Donald Trump on Wednesday morning, offering support and prayers.
Earlier in the election season, Jeb said he would not vote for either Trump or Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Rumors suggested H.W. was considering voting for Clinton, while George W. Bush and his wife Laura reportedly did not vote for any presidential candidate, a major departure from presidential tradition.
