RUMSFELD NOT CON­CERNED IF BUSH 41 BACKS CLIN­TON

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - NEWS -

Re­ports sur­faced this past week that for­mer pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush has said pri­vately he planned to cross party lines and vote for Hil­lary Clin­ton in Novem­ber. An­other prom­i­nent Repub­li­can, Don­ald Rumsfeld, ap­par­ently isn’t fazed, though.

“He’s up in years,” the 84-yearold for­mer De­fense sec­re­tary said of the 92-year-old Bush on MSNBC on Thurs­day. “He ob­vi­ously comes from a to­tally dif­fer­ent cut than Don­ald Trump,” Rumsfeld added.

In June, Rumsfeld said he was “clearly go­ing to vote” for Trump, call­ing the GOP pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee “a known un­known.”
