Governor Gretchen Whitmer says she’s concerned that protests “make it likelier” that Michiganders will have to stay home longer.
On Wednesday the embattled governor told the hosts of “The View” that the president’s insistence that she reopen Michigan and make a deal with legislators is pouring fuel on the fire of unrest in the state.
Whitmer said the protests will likely bring about a longer stay-home posture, exactly what the protesters are trying to avoid.
She also added that the protests appear to her to be more of political rallies, featuring Confederate flags, Nazi symbolism, and calls for violence. Another protest is planned for Thursday.
