Gov. Haslam: Trump needs to step aside

A letter to lawmakers from Gov. Bill Haslam says the state health department is now requiring doctors who perform abortions to document how the fetal is disposed of.

NASHVILLE (WATE) – Governor Bill Haslam released a statement, Sunday, regarding Donald Trump and his presidential campaign.

“In the past I have expressed my concern with Donald Trump’s policy positions. Like many others, I have also objected to many of the things he has said during his campaign. Those concerns have kept me from endorsing him. I want to emphasize that character in our leaders does matter. None of us in elected office are perfect, but the decisions that are made in the Oval Office have too many consequences to ignore the behavior we have seen. It is time for the good of the nation and the Republican Party for Donald Trump to step aside and let Gov. Mike Pence assume the role as the party’s nominee. If he does not step aside, I will write in a Republican for the Office of President. Finally, I want to urge Republicans to vote. Now more than ever, who we elect to Congress and our state and local offices is critical to the future of this country and state that we love,” said Haslam.
