Hagerstrom SHREDS Bill Clinton's Detroit Visit: "Stunning" He'd Visit On Labor Day While Trying To Give Michigan Jobs To Syrian Refugees

Michigan Trump State Director Scott Hagerstrom blasted Bill Clinton's planned Labor Day visit in a blistering press release Wednesday night.

Hagerstrom said it was "Stunning" Clinton would come to Detroit on Labor Day as he advocates for giving away the Motor City's jobs to Syrian refugees.

“Bill Clinton has zero credibility with Detroiters because they know how badly this city has been devastated by the Clintons’ failed trade policies and self-serving political agenda," Hagerstrom said.  "The audacity of Bill Clinton to come to Detroit on Labor Day – a holiday meant to commemorate the amazing contributions of the American worker – while at the same time suggesting that rebuilding Detroit with Syrian refugees is a “pretty good deal” is stunning.  As if costing workers their jobs wasn’t enough, now the Clintons’ want to hire unvetted Syrian refugees to fill the jobs Detroiters desperately need."

Hagerstrom also took a subtle shot at Gov. Snyder and other politicians like Bill and Hillary Clinton who seem relatively OK with the current state of affairs in Detroit. 

"Detroit can have a brighter future, but anyone who is satisfied with the status quo clearly does not understand the pain and suffering some Detroit families still face every day.  Detroit can do better, Michigan can do better, and Donald Trump is the only candidate that will fight for the Great Lakes State and all Americans as President.”

 The feud comes as polls in Michigan are tightening, Trump is buying ads in the state, and as "The Donald" prepares to visit Detroit again this Saturday...
