'Lock her up' chants erupt as Trump attacks Whitmer at Michigan rally

MUSKEGON — President Trump renewed his attacks against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in a raucous Muskegon rally on Saturday evening, blasting what he called “draconian” COVID-19 safety regulations as his supporters broke into chants of “lock her up.”

The refrain came less than two weeks after state and federal authorities foiled an alleged militia plot to kidnap the governor and put her on trial for “treason” before the Nov. 3 election.

Whitmer, a national co-chair for Democratic challenger Joe Biden’s campaign, quickly criticized Trump’s latest commentary, calling it “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.”

The governor last week urged Trump to dial down his rhetoric, but Trump wasted little time rejecting that request in his first visit to Michigan since the kidnapping plot was exposed.
