US President Donald Trump criticised Michigan's Governor Gretchen Whitmer, calling her a «disaster» for her restrictions to fight against COVID-19, at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan, on Tuesday.
Speaking to supporters, Trump attacked Whitmer saying, «I mean your governor is a disaster, they have got to open up this state and she has got to keep her husband away from sailing and fishing. The only one that is free in this state is her husband.»
Crowds replied by chanting «Lock her up.»
Speaking of his own family's experience with the coronavirus, Trump said, «The doctor told me, 'Sir, your son has tested positive.' I see him like 12 seconds later, 'Doctor, how's he doing?' 'He's all better.»
«Hey, young kids have a very strong immune system. Nobody even knew it. Get your children back to school, get them back to school,» he added.
