(PresidentialHill.com)- Donald Trump came under fire from Jeb Bush for suggesting that his deceased father had removed confidential papers from the White House and transported them to a Chinese restaurant and bowling alley.
Trump demanded investigations of former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, as well as dead President George H. W. Bush, who served from 1989 to 1993, at a rally on Saturday in Nevada.
Jeb Bush, a former governor of Florida, tweeted that he was confused by Trump’s statements about his father and questioned, “what the heck is up” with him.
During a rally in Minden, Nevada, on Saturday evening, Trump said that George H.W. Bush took millions of documents to a “former bowling alley and a former Chinese restaurant,” where they combined them.\
Trump noted that, contrarily, he had a minimal number of boxes and storage at Mar-a-Lago that the Great Secret Service secured.
The connection compares this summer’s raid on Donald Trump’s Florida home to an article from 1993 concerning the improper management of computer data under George H. W. Bush.
The information regarding the Chinese business and bowling alley is taken from a 1994 Associated Press article about how Bush Sr. stashed everything from his life in the building adjacent to the Chinese restaurant and a warehouse-like space previously a bowling alley.
Trump claimed last week in a Truth Social post that in 1993, a federal court had ordered the preservation of recordings from the George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan administrations, but the tapes were later destroyed.
In his piece, he asserted that the National Archivist had granted Bush Sr. “exclusive authority over all Presidential material.”
“Compare that to how the 45th President, myself, has been handled unjustly and unlawfully!”
Bush Sr.’s papers were transported to a bowling alley, a Chinese restaurant, and a former furniture store.
Jeb Bush tweeted in response to Trump’s remarks: “I am so confused.”
