Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) backed Joe Biden for president on Thursday, becoming the latest high-profile Republican to support the Democratic nominee over President Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump has actually been leading the charge on incivility. The divisiveness in our nation has not been worse in our lifetimes,” Snyder told the Associated Press after he announced his decision in a USA Today op-ed. 

Biden, he continued, is “a good, decent man. … You can tell he’s a person of character that cares. We need to heal our country.”

In the op-ed, Snyder drew stark criticism on Trump, calling him a “bully,” also saying it is “tragedy watching our world suffer from one.”
