DALLAS (AP) – Another former president Bush is congratulating Donald Trump on winning the race for the White House.

George W. Bush said in a statement that he called Trump Wednesday. He said he and his wife, Laura, wished the president-elect and his family “our very best as they take on an awesome responsibility.”

Bush added: “We pray for the success of our country and the success of our new president.”

A spokesman said Bush and his wife didn’t vote for Trump when casting early ballots for Tuesday’s election.

Bush’s father, George H.W. Bush, also called and congratulated Trump on Wednesday.
