Family split: 'Tension' over Trump at George W. Bush staff reunion in Washington

Differences over President Trump reverberated during a weekend reunion bash for George W. Bush White House alumni, exposing rifts in the network of Republican operatives and officials.

Matt Schlapp, a lobbyist and enthusiastic Trump supporter who was political director in the Bush White House, had to be convinced to attend the reunion by a fellow "Bushie," often a term of scorn in the Trump White House, after he expressed fears of being confronted. Another Bush administration veteran, sometimes critical of Trump and sometimes not, was accosted at the gathering by a former colleague and accused of being too pro-Trump. 

Both the Never Trump faction and the pro-Trump group are outspoken, rarely hesitating to criticize each other despite their shared Bush roots. That was the case as approximately 2,500 of them met for a few days in Washington to reminisce about old times. “There’s been a lot of passion — and tension,” said Schlapp. His wife, Mercedes, also a Bush official, was a senior White House official until recently.

Bush, 73, and Dick Cheney, 78, his vice president, spoke at the reunion but generally steered clear of the disagreements roiling national politics. The party was held Saturday night at The Anthem, a concert venue in Washington.
