President Donald Trump on Friday blasted former Republican Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan for issuing an endorsement for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, which he announced on Thursday.
Trump, in a tweet Friday morning, claimed that he wouldn’t have even accepted Snyder’s endorsement.
“I would NEVER have taken the endorsement of the man who, through gross incompetence, poisoned the people of Flint, Michigan,” he wrote.
The president went on to claim that Snyder, a longtime member of the GOP, is a “Republican in Name Only,” or RINO.
“Former RINO Governor Rick Snyder should be ashamed of himself and his service. I was asked to help fix it. Biden took his endorsement. VOTE TRUMP!!!”
Snyder told Fox News on Thursday that he’s already cast his ballot.
“I’ve already voted,” Snyder told Neil Cavuto, the host of “Your World.” “I’m a proud Republican. This was a big decision, but you come back to the basics, I’m an American first.
"We shouldn't let partisanship get in the way of good decision-making for our country," he added. "Joe Biden is a better decision than Donald Trump for the next four years."
Trump tweeted that night: “Failed RINO former Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan was a disaster with respect to the Flint Water CATASTROPHE, and a very bad Governor overall. He hurt so many people with his gross incompetence. He reminds me of Sleepy Joe!”
