Gov. Whitmer requests major disaster declaration from the federal government

COVI-D19

Gretchen Whitmer said in an interview Friday that her state is not getting the health and safety equipment needed to fight the spread of the novel coronavirus because contractors are sending their products to the federal government first.

In an interview with local radio station WWWJ, Whitmer stated she believes the president has a hand in blocking supplies to the state of MI. During an interview on Detroit radio station WWJ she said, "Anyone who's watching globally what's happening with this pandemic probably knows it's not going to be this year".

"We've had a big problem with the young - a woman governor", he added.

"We've seen an incredible amount of strength and courage of Michiganders during this time of uncertainty, whether it's from communities donating food, money, and resources to those that need it or from teachers finding new and creative ways to reach out to their students", said Governor Whitmer.

Trump continued, "She doesn't get it done, and we send her a lot".


Speaking on Sean Hannity's program, Trump didn't rule out issuing the declaration, saying he "has to make a decision on that".

"She is a new governor, and it's not been pleasant".

Trump also criticized Whitmer on Twitter on March 17 for failing her state.

Bringing them here, will free up more beds for the growing number of people with COVID-19 in the state.

"I don't go into personal attacks; I don't have time for that, I don't have energy for that, frankly. Next week we will announce our plans to ensure our seniors graduate and that no child is held back as a result of a district's ability to provide face-to-face instruction during the COVID-19 school closure".
