President Donald Trump has released a very strong statement pointed at Republicans that refused to endorse him during the 2016 presidential election, saying, “I never forget.”
President Trump said this during a visit to Michigan, where he talked about how he was going to support expansion in the manufacturing sector, specifically in the automobile industry. He plans to take another look at the regulations that were put into place during the Obama administration that inhibited auto manufacturers.
He took that opportunity to rib Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who did not endorse Trump during the 2016 election in both the primaries and the general election once Trump was the Republican nominee. In one remark Trump said, “Come on governor, even though you didn’t endorse me…”
Apparently, this isn’t the first time he’s grilled his rivals. According to The Hill:
“I mean, he’s made that comment about quite a few people,” The Detroit News quoted Snyder as saying after the exchange. “So I view as something that, again, let’s move forward, let’s build bridges and let’s make a stronger economy in our country.”
Trump has bashed those who have failed to endorse him before. For example, he railed against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in July after the onetime GOP presidential candidate failed to endorse him at the Republican National Convention, urging Republicans to instead vote their consciences.
Are you ready for all of these ridiculous regulations to be repealed so we can start making amazing automobiles again? I know I am!
