Will Flint Mayor Karen Weaver Stop Donald Trump From Visiting The Flint Water Plant?
Donald Trump is visiting Flint today, but Mayor Karen Weaver hasn't been as hospitable to Trump as she has to Presidential candidates that have visited in the recent past.
Trump is obviously trying to win over some votes in Michigan, but this is the first time he has directly addressed the Flint Water Crisis. There aren't very many details about his visit this afternoon, other than his plan to visit the Flint Water Plant.
Weaver has made it clear that there will be no welcome mat for Trump at the plant, and some are wondering if she's going to let him in at all after she said,
Flint is focused on fixing the problems caused by lead contamination of our drinking water, not photo-ops. The water plant can't afford the disruption of a last minute visit.
Trump also plans on some sort of speech today, but details about the speech have been hard to come by. We do know that he lands at Flint's Bishop airport shortly after 1pm today.
Do you think it's a good move for Weaver to deny Trump access to the water plant? She has publicly endorsed Hillary, but shutting out Trump doesn't seem like a very smart move.
What if Trump were to win in November? Is Weaver setting Flint up for more national neglect with the Flint Water Crisis?
