Trump Tweeted Wednesday night.
"Snyder, whose political career was ruined by Flint, hurt a lot of people in Michigan…" Trump continued, "… I’ll take the Endorsement of Law Enforcement all over the Country, and Joe can have the RINO’S. This Snyder mess was made during the OBiden era – no wonder they’re friends!" The failed former Governor of Michigan, RINO Rick Snyder, who was responsible for the Flint Water Disaster (and I let him know it!), is now endorsing Sleepy Joe Biden, who doesn’t have a clue! Snyder, whose political career was ruined by Flint, hurt a lot of people in Michigan…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2020 Snyder has endorsed Biden in a USA Today editorial, writing that he is a Republican vote for the Democratic Biden.
"I will continue to support and stand up for Republican policies and values, and support Republican candidates, but I will not support Donald Trump for reelection," Snyder wrote.
Throughout the editorial, which can be viewed here , Snyder chastised Trump for dividing the country while Biden, Snyder wrote, has shown strong moral character and empathy while seeming willing to listen to people whose views and perspectives differ from his own.
"We will not continue to be the greatest nation in the world if we can’t get along among ourselves," Snyder wrote. "We have only become more divided over the past four years. We need a leader who believes in civility and bringing Americans closer together."
Trump will be visiting Michigan on Thursday, delivering remarks at 7 p.m. at an airport hangar in Freeland, according to his campaign website.
The president’s last visit to Michigan was in May, when he visited a Ford Motor Company parts plan on Rawsonville. Vice President Mike Pence visited Michigan in August.
Biden spoke in Warren, Michigan, on Wednesday, announcing a two-pronged plan that includes focusing on building and buying American-made products and creating American jobs.
The Democratic candidate used the opportunity to criticize Trump ’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, and said many campaign promises made by Trump turned out to be lies.
" Donald Trump makes a lot of promises," Biden said. "He promised that he alone could stop the offshoring jobs. He promised he’d bring back jobs (and) stop companies from leaving.
"He now hopes we don’t notice what he said and won’t remember."
