President Donald Trump has resumed the rallies after getting the coronavirus treatment. Trump is back on the campaign trail as he was tested negative for COVID-19 for two consecutive days, confirmed by his physician Sean Conley. Trump is back, and so are the controversies in US politics. During his speech in Western Michigan, Trump suggested to Michigan Governor Whitmer to ease the lockdown restrictions and open up the economy. "You've got to get your governor to open up your state and get your schools open," Trump said to the cheers from the crowd. In response, his supporters erupted into chants of "lock her up." This was used by Trump in the 2016 campaign as well against Donald Trump.
Surprisingly, Trump did little to prevent the crowd. Instead, he said - "Lock them all up." The message reached Whitmer's attention very quickly as she responded even while the president was still speaking. "This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials' lives in danger. While we are trying very hard to save fellow Americans' lives, the president is encouraging such statements. It needs to stop," she tweeted. This wasn't the first time Trump singled out the Michigan Governor. In April, Trump tweeted "Liberate Michigan," and on another occasion, he termed her as the "lock-up queen." Even after contracting the virus himself, it looks like Trump hasn't learned a lesson from the pandemic. More than 210,000 Americans have lost their lives due to poor handling of the pandemic by the president, and he is still taunting the governors to reopen the economy.
Even though Trump encourages violence against public servants, Whitmer said she would instead focus on handling the coronavirus pandemic. In her interview with NBC, she said - "Every moment that we are not focused on the fact that there are 220,000 Americans who died from this virus is good for him. In that sense, as he invokes violence against us who are working to save other lives, it's good for him. That is the reason why I don't want to talk about him endangering the public servant's lives. I want to talk about what he hasn't done, and that's his job."
