The next Commander in Chief has made it standard operation using Twitter to get his message across. President-elect Donald Trump tweets at all hours and a number of them have been controversial. 

Earlier this week, one tweet struck a nerve with some members of Trump’s party. For one West Michigan Congressional leader it wasn’t that one tweet, it’s the non-stop tweeting in general. WGVU sat down with the man who authored the tweet heard ‘round the world.

“I just said, ‘Dude, just stop!’”

Governor Rick Snyder is calling GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump's comments 'disgusting,' and a west Michigan Congressman says Trump should call it quits.

Some Michigan Republicans, such as Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and U.S. Reps. Fred Upton and Cascade Township’s Justin Amash, say Donald Trump's candidacy should end.

Gov. Rick Snyder says the presidential election is a "huge mess" and Republican nominee Donald Trump's "revolting and disgusting" comments about women could pose challenges for Republicans on Michigan's ballot.

West Michigan lawmaker Justin Amash says the state needs to take financial responsibility for mistakes made in Flint.

"The state spends $33 million on the Pure Michigan ad campaign, yet has only provided $28 million to make sure the people of Flint have pure water," he says.

"So the state has the resources. The state needs to make it right."

Amash's comments were made during a U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing that questioned state and regional environmental officials on decisions made in Flint.


  Florida Republican Congressman Daniel Webster says he's glad the House has elected a new speaker, but admits he’d hoped to have been the choice. U.S. Representative Justin Amash of Cascade Township was also a supporter of Webster. WGVU talks with the West Michigan Republican about Webster and the expectations for the newly elected Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.
