Trump not endorsing George P. Bush for Texas AG after Bush betrayed his father, turned his back on his family name, and pledged his loyalty to Trump, is some real Game of Thrones type shit.

The left’s out of control policies are eroding the fabric of our nation. It was great to see Pres. Trump today & discuss how we must come together as a party to restore America First Priorities. I appreciate his friendship & kind words as we work together to Keep America Great. pic.twitter.com/pEMuCUOCBi
