MICHIGAN — The following is a joint statement by David Hecker, President of AFT Michigan, and Steve Cook, President of the MEA, calling on Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley to denounce President Trump.

“After finally condemning white nationalists after intense political pressure forced him to do so, on Tuesday President Trump’s true feelings reemerged when he again stated there is ‘blame on both sides’ for Charlottesville, even going further and blaming the ‘alt-left.’

Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley want to lead our state. AFT Michigan and the MEA call on the Attorney General and the Lt. Governor to publicly denounce President Trump’s statements made earlier today, statements that once again reveal his bigotry.”
