Former Republican President George W. Bush is preparing to endorse Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, one Fox News star speculated on Monday.
Juan Williams, a Fox News contributor and best selling author, wrote that a Bush 2020 endorsement announcement could come soon — and the former Republican president wouldn’t be supporting President Donald Trump.

Bush has been a regular critic of Trump even before the president took office.
The Bush family, including the late former President George H. W. Bush, famously said they refused to vote for either Trump or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
Bush also remained silent during the impeachment of Trump, which Trump later said frustrated him.
And on Tuesday, Bush released a scathing op-ed critical of Trump’s reponse to the recent unrest.
To his credit, Trump has also been critical of the former Bush administration. He has criticized the former president for his response to the September 11th radical Islamic terror attacks during his first presidential campaign.
“I’ve heard for years he kept the country safe after 9/11 — what does that mean?” Trump said in 2016. “What about during 9/11? … The worst attack ever in this country. It was during his presidency. I mean, we had the worst attack ever.”
According to Williams, former presidents Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and Barack Obama have all endorsed Biden — leaving on Bush as the only living president not to weigh in on the 2020 election.
Williams says some “Never Trump” Republican groups have recently “set the table” for Bush to endorse Biden.
“There is no question about whom Carter, Clinton and Obama plan to support,” Williams wrote. “That leaves Bush holding the biggest stick here. Groups of leading conservative thinkers in The Lincoln Project and a new group including several former top GOP officials called Republican Voters Against Trump have set the table for Bush to speak up. If he announces he is voting for Biden, it will change some votes.”
