Schuette, Calley Must Respond to Trump’s Comments
Silence means they approve of Trump’s “shithole” comments
MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan is calling on Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley to respond to Donald Trump’s racist, xenophobic remarks about other countries.
“Bill Schuette and Brian Calley have both aligned themselves with President Trump and therefore have a responsibility to respond to Trump’s disgusting comments and they need to be asked repeatedly until they answer. This type of harmful, racist rhetoric cannot be tolerated,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Silence on this matter means one thing: Bill Schuette and Brian Calley agree with Donald Trump’s racist remarks.”
