HOUSTON -- Former President George H.W. Bush took to Twitter early Wednesday to congratulate President-elect Donald Trump on his big presidential win.

“Barbara and I congratulate @realDonaldTrump, wish him well as he guides America forward as our next President. His family is in our prayers,” @GeorgeHWBush tweeted.

Bush’s tweet comes after a bitter election and speculation that H.W. and his son, George W. Bush, would vote for Clinton instead.

But a spokesperson for the Bush family, Freddy Ford, told USA TODAY that the 43rd president and former First Lady Laura Bush voted "None of the Above" for President, and went Republican for the rest of the ballot.
