It comes after Trump at an election rally in Michigan criticized Whitmer for the coronary restrictions in the state.
Supporters responded by shouting “cage her in!”, And Trump responded by “cage them in, everyone.”
– This is exactly the typical rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other officials in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow citizens. This must end, tweeted Whitmer afterwards.
Thirteen men, including members of two far-right militia groups, were arrested last week and charged with plotting to abduct the governor and trigger a civil war.
Whitmer later slammed Trump, accusing him of encouraging supporters of white supremacy and right-wing extremist militias.
