“It is unfathomable that a mere ten days after a plot to kidnap and execute Gov. Whitmer was revealed, the President of the United States refused to call on his supporters to squash their dangerous chants of ‘lock her up’. The President has shown time and time again that he has no desire to discourage or condemn domestic terrorism or the use of violence to achieve his agenda, and his latest rally is just the most recent example.

“The fact that the President’s senior advisor even dismissed the chants at his rally as a “fun” setting is disturbing. There is nothing fun about continuing to threaten a female public servant for using science as a guide to protect the people of the Great Lakes State from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Continuing to dog-whistle with language like this does nothing but incite violence and expand the divide between the American people at a time when we need unity most.”
