WASHINGTON -- Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says he's not planning to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump -- and it doesn't look he'll change his mind anytime soon.
In a Wednesday interview with The Detroit News, the Republican governor said he has bigger issues to deal with, namely the ongoing water crisis in Flint, which left thousands without clean drinking water.
“I’ve stayed out of the whole thing, and I’m going to continue to,” Snyder told The Detroit News Editorial Board. “I’ve got important things I want to work on in Michigan.”
While Snyder refused to endorse Trump, he didn't say he wouldn't vote for him. He added that his focus is on re-electing Republicans to the Michigan House of Representatives.
Snyder's comments reflect the division within the Republican party over their presumptive nominee. Many have been slow to coalesce behind Trump, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who continues to hold off on making an endorsement. A number of Republican governors and members of Congress are also steering clear.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
