Hundreds of Trump Supporters Protest Against Biden in Michigan

Hundreds of protesters greeted Joe Biden as he rolled into Howell, Michigan Tuesday to tout the Democrats’ radical $3.5 Trillion “Build Back Better” bill that has stalled in the Senate.

Biden was scheduled to deliver remarks about the socialist spend-fest at the Local 324 of the International Union of Operating Engineers’ Construction Career Center at around 3:30 p.m.

Hundreds of demonstrators, mostly Republicans, gathered along the highway about a mile from the speech venue, holding signs blasting the Biden regime’s radical agenda, including “Build Back Broke,” “stop the mandates, stop the spending,” “Biden is a Traitor,” “f—k Joe Biden, “Let’s go Brandon,” and “TRUMP WON.”

 

“I wish he would just stay out of the state and leave us alone,” one Howell resident told a reporter ahead of Biden’s visit.

Jackie and Philip Ludwig, a Trump-supporting couple from Livingston County, wielded the TRUMP WON sign, the Detroit News reported.

“We’re going to support Trump still until he’s put back in,” Philip Ludwig said. “So we just want Biden to know we’re not happy with his spending. We’re not happy with the way our country’s going and the job he’s performing. And we would like him to step down.”

Jackie said, “Sleepy Joe thinks that this is sleepy little Howell and it’s not.”

A small handful of Biden supporters were greatly outnumbered by the Trump supporters.

Roughly 40 people were seated outside the union training facility to hear Biden read from the teleprompter.

In the front row were U.S. Reps. Andy Levin of Bloomfield Township, Debbie Dingell of Dearborn and Dan Kildee of Flint Township. A large American flag hung from a crane in the background.

Livingston County has been a Republican stronghold. Trump won it with 60% of the vote in 2020. However, the county is located in the battleground congressional district of U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Holly. Slotkin was reelected in 2020 by 4 percentage points against Republican Paul Junge.

Junge, who was at the demonstration Tuesday, said he “fully” expects to run again in 2022. A state commission is working to redraw the district lines.

“I continue to believe Elissa Slotkin is not the moderate she said she was,” Junge said. “The people of this district are going to see it and vote her out. I intend to be that alternative.”

Biden, who’s now been to Michigan four times since he took office, has seen his approval numbers plummet in the state in the wake of the regime’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, the surge in the delta variant of the coronavirus amid increased vaccination rates, the crisis at the border, and fallout over his radical proposals.

About 39 percent of Michigan voters approved of his performance and 53 percent disapproved, according to recent poll by the Glengariff Group.

Biden’s attempt to rouse the crowd of 40 people assembled to hear his speech was destined to fail due to his terminal lack of charisma.
