The Michigan governor unleashed her critcisms on Saturday evening, while Trump spoke before a large crowd at a campaign rally in Muskegon.

At his Saturday rally in Muskegon, Mich., Trump set out to prove Guthrie wrong with an nearly unbelievable string of "did he really just say that" moments.

Tweeted Whitmer in response: "This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials' lives in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow Americans". "Get your governor to open up your state".

Senior Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller told Fox News Sunday that Trump didn't regret the chant that broke out at the rally, saying the crowd was frustrated by Whitmer's restrictions for the state. 'And get your schools open'.

Authorities allege members of two anti-government paramilitary groups took part in plotting Whitmer's kidnapping, although some were charged under federal law and others under state law. I see everything that is said about and to her online.


"Lock them all up", Trump concurred. "I think Gov. Whitmer is really inappropriate to try and lay blame at the president".

But as Whitmer, a Democrat, pleaded with Trump to "bring down the heat", the President's daughter-in-law Lara Trump described the President's calls to jail the governor as him "having fun", during an interview with CNN on Sunday.

Whitmer, who was targeted in an alleged right-wing conspiracy to kidnap and possibly kill her that the Federal Bureau of Investigation thwarted earlier this month, called on the public to come together to join her in condemning Trump's remarks. Host Jake Tapper pressed her repeatedly on whether the president should tone down his rhetoric, but she said critics were misinterpreting his rally comments. "Look, the president was at a rally".

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday urged Trump to "realize that the words of the president of the United States weigh a ton". "And, in our political dialogue, to inject fear tactics into it, especially a woman governor and her family, is so irresponsible".

Pelosi added that this is a "horrible situation" where "the biggest antidote to his poison is the vote".
