MIDLAND, MI (WNEM) -

Midland’s Dow Chemical is defending itself after making a hefty donation to a controversial organization.

America First Policies has been reported as a pro-Trump dark money establishment founded by former Trump campaign officials.

Staffers have repeatedly been accused of making racist, sexist, homophobic and anti-Muslim statements.

It was reported Dow Chemical donated $100,000 to the non-profit, but the company said it won’t happen again.

In a statement to TV5, a spokesperson for Dow said the company was not aware of any discriminatory actions by staffers at America First Policies. He also said the company does not support discriminatory language or actions.
