Jeb Bush called Donald Trump to offer congratulations.

"They had a very productive call and Gov. Bush was extremely gracious congratulating Mr. Trump on his victory and wishing him well as our next president," Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, told reporters in New York on Sunday morning.

Not long after Trump wrote on Twitter: "Jeb Bush, George W and George H.W. all called to express their best wishes on the win. Very nice!"

Bush, whom Trump relentlessly attacked as "low energy," said he could not vote for Trump but made clear he did not support Hillary Clinton.

"Governor Bush reached out and called the President-elect on Friday to congratulate him on his victory and wish him well in the coming weeks and months," spokesowman Kristy Campbell said in an email.
