Whitmer tells Trump to stop focusing on her, start focusing on pandemic

Whitmer and Trump have had a contentious relationship throughout the pandemic – which was only heightened by rumors that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was considering her as a potential running mate.

In a press conference on the kidnapping plot earlier that week, Whitmer brought up the president's Sept. 29 comment that the far-right Proud Boys group should "stand back and stand by."

“The president of the United States stood before the American people and refused to condemn white supremacists and hate groups like these two Michigan militia groups," Whitmer said.

Hate groups heard the president’s words not as a rebuke but as a rallying cry, as a call to action."

The alleged militia members who plotted Whitmer's kidnapping held meetings and discussions on Facebook that a wired, undercover FBI informant was able to document since early in 2020, according to officials.
