Not as bad as "covfefe," but still pretty funny.

The glowing praise from Trump comes after Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced earlier this week that he would be running for governor.

Schuette was a strong supporter of Trump when he was running for office, and stood by Trump's initial Muslim ban in January.
