Trump Visit Shines Spotlight on “Division” in “Fractured” GOP Senate Primary, Mike Rogers’ Refusal to Support Bipartisan Border Deal

Even with Trump’s endorsement of him, Rogers has faced “immediate condemnation” from Republicans. 25 of the 60 Michigan RNC delegates have signed a resolution urging Trump to rescind his endorsement of Rogers, and “1,100 members of a group called Rescue Michigan signed a letter” urging Trump to endorse someone else.

The turbulence Rogers faces comes as he has decided to put scoring political points ahead of standing up for Michiganders. Rogers claimed that the bipartisan border bill “didn’t correct any of the problems.” In reality, it was “one of the toughest border and immigration laws in modern history” and the “most conservative border bill in decades” backed by border patrol agents and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that would’ve strengthened the border and stopped the flow of fentanyl into the country. 

Here’s what you need to know about how Trump has added more fuel to the fire in the “brutal” Republican Senate primary:
