President Donald Trump told Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer to “make a deal” with the “angry” armed protesters who have been protesting the state’s coronavirus lockdown measures, calling them “very good people” in a Friday tweet.
“The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry,” Trump tweeted. “They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.”
The protests have been ongoing for several weeks and have been covered repeatedly by Fox News. In mid-April, protesters deliberately jammed Michigan roads, while on Thursday, armed protesters stormed the Michigan Capitol in military gear and attempted to gain access to the House floor.
Call me old fashioned but I don’t regard armed people who storm a parliament as “very good people”. They should be treated the same way as if armed antifa activists stormed a state capitol.
