Haley Stevens Calls Out Representative Trott for Making Light of President Trump’s Shameful Remarks on Charlottesville
Birmingham, Michigan — Haley Stevens, Chief of Staff of the auto rescue and digital manufacturing executive issued the following statement in response to Rep. Trott’s comments on Twitter relating to President Trump’s press conference yesterday.
Instead of condemning the President for his lack of moral leadership, Representative Trott jokes that ‘more golf’ is the solution to Trump’s racist comments. This is not just insensitive, but shows a complete lack of leadership and disregard for standing up for basic moral principles. Condemnation of Trump’s comments and the act of terrorism that killed Heather Heyer should not be difficult. It is the very minimum of what must be done to begin to move forward in these complex and difficult conversations.
President Trump’s statement yesterday is unacceptable. Michigan deserves a representative who will stand up to hateful language and fight for an inclusive democracy and government that represents everyone.
Stevens is running to represent the 11th Congressional District, which includes portions of Oakland and Wayne counties. She resides in Rochester Hills.
