In a series of tweets Friday morning, President Trump strongly implied support for people in Michigan protesting against Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
LIBERATE MICHIGAN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 17, 2020
Yesterday hundreds of people drove to Lansing, Michigan to show their disdain for Whitmer's arbitrary rules against buying things like seeds, carpet and American flags as part of a mandated stay-at-home order.
Just got this from the protest in Lansing ?? where protesters tell me they’re more worried about the Gov than the virus. Gov says people have the right to protest, asks them to do so in a manner that doesn’t risk their health or health of 1st responders. pic.twitter.com/vYyJ3JyC73— Shannon Bream (@ShannonBream) April 15, 2020
Trump also backed frustrated individuals in Virginia where Democrat Governor Ralph Northam signed a series of gun control bills after issuing a stay-at-home order. That order lasts until at least June 9 and protests on the shutdown are being planned for next week.
LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 17, 2020
Richmond, VA - April 24th at noon— Jason Alexander Roberge VA-7 (@JasonRobergeVA) April 15, 2020
We will not have our voices silenced any longer
Remember our January 20th rally?
I will see all of the patriots in Richmond once again!#REOPENVirginia @GovernorVA @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/W5Qudfinfo
Interesting data out of Virginia, which is under the most brutal of business-killing policies. Our COVID-19 problem is almost exclusively confined to nursing homes. @GovernorVA locked down an entire state of 8.5MM ppl for a very targeted problem. pic.twitter.com/cIN8KyAo2B— Jordan Schachtel (@JordanSchachtel) April 17, 2020
Protests also happened in Minnesota this week, which President Trump noticed.
