    Former president George W. Bush and Laura Bush did not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in this year's presidential election, NBC News has confirmed.

    A spokesman for the Dallas-based former first couple said they voted two weeks ago and did not cast a ballot for Clinton or Trump, confirming a report in the Wall Street Journal.

    Spokesman Freddy Ford told NBC News they voted "None of the Above" for president, while voting for Republicans on the rest of the ballot. 

    Back in September, a prominent member of the Kennedy family said former Republican President George H.W. Bush told her that he plans to vote for Clinton for president this fall.

    Bush's spokesman, Jim McGrath, has said in a statement that the 92-year-old former president's vote is private and Bush isn't commenting on the race.

    Trump defeated Jeb Bush, son of George H.W. Bush and brother of George W., in the 2016 primaries, often attacking the former Florida governor for being "low energy."
