George W. Bush HATES This Republican Candidate for President

George W. Bush recently addressed a hundred donors of his brother Jeb’s presidential campaign at a fundraiser in Denver. The former president was giving his perspective on the race. According to donors, he said pleasant things about all the Republicans with the exception of one. And President Bush was rather blunt regarding this candidate.

Politico reported that Bush spoke of Ted Cruz and said, “I just don’t like the guy.” He was rather blunt in his criticism of Cruz, who worked in the Bush administration.

One donor, paraphrasing the former president’s comment in response to a broad question about how he viewed the primary race and the other Republican candidates, said: “He said he found it ‘opportunistic’ that Cruz was sucking up to Trump and just expecting all of his support to come to him in the end,” that donor added.

Senator Cruz refused to get entangled into a public spat with the former president. Instead he issued a graceful statement to Politico.

“I have great respect for George W Bush, and was proud to work on his 2000 campaign and in his administration,” Cruz said. “It’s no surprise that President Bush is supporting his brother and attacking the candidates he believes pose a threat to his campaign. I have no intention of reciprocating. I met my wife Heidi working on his campaign, and so I will always be grateful to him.”
