A Democrat, who federal law enforcement agents protected from abduction, decided to thank the president by calling him a racist.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently stopped six individuals from kidnapping Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. However, instead of expressing gratitude, the governor declared the Oval Office considers white people superior and dominant over those from other races.
“The president of the United States stood before the American people and refused to condemn white supremacists and hate groups, like these two Michigan militia groups [that tried to kidnap me,]” the governor said in a video shared by Axios. “When our leaders meet with, encourage, or fraternize with domestic terrorists, they legitimize their actions, and they are complicit. When they stalk and contribute to hate speech, they are complicit.”
President Donald Trump rejected the notion that he tolerates any “extreme violence.”
“I do not tolerate any extreme violence. Defending all Americans, even those who oppose and attack me, is what I will always do as your president,” he said on Twitter.
The president urged the governor and the rest of the Democratic Party to condemn extreme anarchist protesters who unlawfully looted businesses and vandalized both religious and historical monuments across the nation in the name of racial equality.
“Rather than say thank you, she calls me a white supremacist—while Biden and Democrats refuse to condemn Antifa, anarchists, looters, and mobs that burn down Democrat-run cities,” he said on Twitter.
Documents filed at the U.S. District Court in Western Michigan revealed that without FBI intervention, the group could “snatch and grab” the governor, hold a citizen’s trial, and even execute her for ordering extended lockdowns.
“The group talked about creating a society that followed the U.S. Bill of Rights and where they could be self sufficient,” court documents said. “Several members talked about state governments they believed were violating the U.S. Constitution, including the government of Michigan and Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Several members talked about murdering ‘tyrants’ or ‘taking’ a sitting governor.”
However, Whitmer appears to refuse to acknowledge federal law enforcement officers’s efforts to foil her attempted abduction.
“The federal government provided tremendous help to the great people of Michigan [and] my Justice Department and Federal Law Enforcement announced today that they foiled a dangerous plot against the governor of Michigan,” the president said on Twitter. “Governor Whitmer of Michigan has done a terrible job. She locked down her state for everyone, except her husband’s boating activities.”
He urged the governor to lift economic restrictions that were originally intended to temporarily help contain the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.
“Governor Whitmer—open up your state, open up your schools, and open up your churches,” he said.
