Saturday at a rally while talking about a failed plot to kidnap Whitmer, Trump said, “She was threatened. And she blamed me. She blamed me. And our people were the ones that worked with her people so let’s see what happens.” When the audience chanted “lock her up,” Trump responded, “Lock them all up.”
“You know, it’s incredibly disturbing that the president of the United States, ten days after a plot to kidnap, put me on trial and execute me,” Whitmer said. “Ten days after that was uncovered, the president is at it again. And inspiring and incentivizing and inciting this kind of domestic terrorism. It is wrong. It’s got to end. It is dangerous, not just for me and my family, but for public servants everywhere who are doing their jobs and trying to protect their fellow Americans,” she blathered.
This is ludicrous. Nothing Trump said is incitement to violence or terrorism. The morons who plotted to kidnap Whitmer were not inspired or incentivized by him; they consisted of anarchists who hate Trump.
