President Trump says “put the governor of Michigan in jail” October 18 at 11:48 a.m.
With just over two weeks to go before the U.S. presidential election, President Trump spoke in the hard-festive state of Midwestern Michigan, where he said “put him in jail” about the state governor of the opposing opposition Democratic Party, which has caused controversy, including a strong backlash from the governor.
President Trump, speaking in the fiercely frayed state of Michigan on Sunday, criticized the opposition Democratic Governor Whitmer, who is focusing on anti-infection measures for the new Coronavirus, for “restarting economic activity and schools.”
Shortly after, in response to repeated calls from thousands of audience members to “put her in jail,” President Trump said, “Put her in jail.”
Governor Whitmer responded immediately on Twitter, accusing him of saying, “These statements endanger the lives of me, my family, and so on, and should be stopped.”
In Michigan this month, 13 people have been charged with attempting abductions by radical groups armed with guns against Governor Whitmer’s anti-infection measures, and Governor Whitmer has accused President Trump of not unearthing such groups as fueling radical behavior.
In response to this situation, the Michigan government has banned voters from possessing guns and other weapons in a 4-view form at polling stations as a measure that would allow voters to vote safely, causing controversy about whether President Trump’s remarks would encourage violence.
