Former Gov. Rick Snyder in an op-ed published by USA Today on Thursday endorsed Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, making waves as a Republican who isnt backing incumbent President Donald Trump.
Hes one of a number of Republicans who are speaking out against Trumps reelection, according to Jeff Timmer, a senior advisor with The Lincoln Project, a group of disillusioned Republicans working to defeat Trump and his supporters in Congress.
Theres never been a time like this when so many members of an incumbent presidents party have said vote for the other guy, Timmer said on a taping of WKARs Off The Record on Thursday.
So, what was behind Snyders decision? MLive caught up with him in a telephone interview on Thursday. Its published below, with slight edits for length and clarity.
Q: You didnt endorse Donald Trump in 2016, did you vote for him?
Ive never said. What I would say is, I was not a big fan of Donald Trumps before, but I had an open mind, and in particular, in the op-ed piece I wrote about going to his inaugural address. I was sitting there in the stands. And I view it as an opportunity to see how he was going to lead. It was an opportunity to heal the country after a very divisive election season between Trump and (Hillary) Clinton.

He is joined by fellow MI traitors Ex-Congressman Joe Schwarz, a leftist pig who started endorsing rats the minute he was bounced in the GOP primary and Dave Trott.
Also Joe Schwarz (I had forgotten about him) and DAVE TROTT, I guess I owe the Kerry Benvitolio fan club an apology.
Another never Trump maggot surfaces.
Yeah, reading the interview, it sees he really soured on the whole “republican” thing. And doesn’t think he has anything to say about state politics.
Lincoln Project == Log Cabin “Republicans” == Closeted homos and chomos with an “R” after their name.
We’ve had a real succession of assholes since John Engler.
I dont agree with Trump on everything, but I absolutely LOOOOVE how Trump is forcing all the RINOs out of their rat-holes.
Support for Israel?
Draining the Swamp?
Tells us something you cowards!
He says he thinks Trump is too mean.
“Another never Trump maggot surfaces.”
“Snyder wants to find a way to inject his “relentless positive action” philosophy and civility into public discourse, Baird said. “I think a portion of his next chapter is going to be devoted to trying to influence a behavioral revolution in the public arena,” Baird told Crain’s.”
“I find it interesting that I havre never heard why these RINOs don’t support Trump. Tell us why.”
They want a seat at the NWO table. Trump is killing the NWO.
Pride and greed.
Trump is making these old Republicans irrelevant, they want Trump to lose thinking they’ll be back in the charge of the GOP.
Endorsing the democrats at this point in time is endorsing looting, rioting, and just crime in general. It is anti-small business. It is also anti-first amendment, the churches here in California remain closed.
It's called "Compassionate Conservatism", and it's neither compassionate, nor conservative.
Refuses to criticize Whitmer, which means he’s in her corner.
Just like a turd with an air pocket, right to the surface.
Promises made promises kept. Trump has been waaaay more than amazing the only reason not to support him is because you want usa to turn into Cuba.
These nitwits dont support Trump because he has effectively hijacked the GOP and stolen it from its corporate and foreign big-money donors.

Hes one of a SMALL number of Republican RINOs who are speaking out against Trumps reelection,
