Bill Schuette Backs Trump and His Racist Policies
Michigan’s right-wing attorney general sides with right-wing presidential candidate
MICHIGAN — Attorney General Bill Schuette has officially announced he plans to support Donald Trump for president. With the announcement, Schuette joins a growing list of Michigan Republicans, including Lt. Governor Brian Calley, who are supporting Trump and his racist, misogynistic and dangerous ideas.
While at the Mackinac Policy Conference, Schuette was quoted saying, “I’m going to support the Republican Nominee and that’s going to be Donald Trump.”
“If Bill Schuette was looking for more ways to convince the people of Michigan that he has the wrong priorities, he’s certainly done it by endorsing a dangerous candidate like Donald Trump,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “As Michigan’s attorney general, Schuette is supposed to protect Michiganders, but by supporting Trump he is endorsing violence against protesters, the criminalization of women’s health care and predatory business practices like those pushed by Trump University. Schuette and Trump both have the wrong priorities for Michigan.”
