Hundreds of former aides to former President George W. Bush and the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) announced Thursday that they are endorsing Democrat Joe Biden for president.

The endorsements for the Democrat nominee come as President Donald Trump prepares to officially accept his party’s nomination on the last night of the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Thursday, NBC News reported.

A political action committee, 43 Alumni for Biden, posted a list of nearly 300 Bush administration members or campaign aides that openly supported Biden.

The names include former Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman as well as former ambassadors and White House staffers.

More than 100 of McCain’s congressional and campaign staffers also endorsed Biden and dissed Trump in a letter.

“Given the incumbent president’s lack of competent leadership, his efforts to aggravate rather than bridge divisions among Americans, and his failure to uphold American values, we believe the election of former Vice President Biden is clearly in the national interest,” they said in a letter.

Some former McCain aides who signed the letter include Mark Salter, the senator’s one-time chief-of-staff; Mike Murphy, a GOP political consultant who worked on strategy for McCain’s 2000 presidential campaign; Christian Ferry, who was McCain’s deputy campaign manager for his 2008 bid for the presidency; and Joe Donoghue, who served as McCain’s legislative director.

Trump and McCain frequently butted heads, especially over efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Several other Republicans also jumped ship to the Democrat side to endorse Biden last week at the Democratic National Convention, including former Secretary of State Colin Powell, former New York Rep. Susan Molinari, former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

All of these Republicans just so happened to speak at the 1996 Republican National Convention nominating Bob Dole in his failed bid against former President Bill Clinton.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted out a few tips on Saturday to illegal aliens looking to evade sweeps conducted by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) officers.

“Warning: The Trump admin is expected to begin ICE raids across the country TOMORROW, targeting people for round up,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in the Saturday tweet.

The self-described Democratic socialist then linked to tweets from Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) and United We Dream— both organizations which posted the locations of the suspected ICE raids.

“NOW is the time for us to come together: – Check in w/ your neighbors – Share “Know Your Rights” info – If you see ICE, report to @UNITEDWEDREAM 1-844-363-1423,” the post continued.

The freshman Democrat continued her series of tweets Saturday, claiming that the Trump administration is running “concentration camps” on the southern border where children do not get “toothpaste or soap.”

Donald Trump Jr. quickly refuted her “concentration camp” claim, sending Ocasio-Cortez a tweet with messages from Holocaust survivors.

Although Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats have strongly condemned the Trump administration for going after people who stay in the country illegally, their rhetoric did not match up to the reality of Trump’s plan on border enforcement.

Trump announced later on Saturday that he would be delaying the administration’s effort to deport more illegal aliens until both political parties can work out a bipartisan solution to solve the problems at the southern border.
