MI governor disturbed by Trump criticism and 'lock her up' chants

MI governor disturbed by Trump criticism and 'lock her up' chants”

It is risky, not just for me and my family, but for public servants everywhere who are doing their jobs and trying to protect their fellow Americans.

When thousands of protesters, including armed militia members, converged on the state capitol in Lansing in April to protest Ms Whitmer's social-distancing measures, Mr Trump encouraged the demonstrators, tweeting, "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!". The crowd began chanting, "lock her up", a theme they often used when Trump brought up former Sec. Okay? And get your schools open. Get your schools open.

During a Sunday interview on "Meet the Press", Governor Whitmer accused Trump of "inciting domestic terrorism" for verbally attacking her following the discovery of a plot to kidnap her. Whitmer made the remarks in response to a video of Trump supporters chanting "lock her up" during the president's Saturday rally in Muskegon, Michigan, as Trump demanded that Governor Gretchen Whitmer re-open the state in the middle of a global coronavirus pandemic.

"Trump's campaign, which uses the Twitter handle "Trump War Room" on Twitter, pointed out the clearly visible "8645" on a table beside Whitmer during an interview with NBC News host Chuck Todd on 'Meet the Press" Sunday morning, claiming it is an anti-Trump message encouraging the President's execution almost two weeks before the election. "The schools have to be open, right?" "Lock 'em all up", the president responded as the chants continued.

Whitmer was the target of a failed kidnapping plot, according to authorities, who announced earlier this month that they charged 13 men with federal and state crimes in connection to the alleged scheme to overthrow Michigan's state government. It is unsafe. We do not tolerate actions like he is giving comfort to.

President Trump speaks during a campaign rally at Muskegon County Airport. So, I think people are frustrated, and, look, the president was at a rally. Of course he wasn't encouraging people to threaten this woman. Every single time the President does this at a rally, the violent rhetoric towards her immediately escalates on social media. "That's ridiculous", she later added.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking on ABC's "This Week, ' said Trump's statements were 'irresponsible" and accused him of injecting fear tactics.

Several Republican and Trump campaign officials appeared on Sunday news shows to defend the president. She urged people upset by Trump's comments to cast ballots in the upcoming election.

"Just last week, the president of the United States stood before the American people and refused to condemn white supremacist and hate groups like these two MI militia groups", she said then.
