Democrats are working overtime to prevent President Trump from winning re-election.
Their top target is his massive rallies, which have been an incredible hit since the 2016 election.
But Trump may never host a Michigan rally again after what Governor Gretchen Whitmer did.
Make no mistake, Democrats have been celebrating since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
It has given them the opportunity to expand their powers in ways they never imagined before.
They can now decide when you can and can’t leave your home, if you can or can’t get a haircut, and what you can and can’t buy at the store in many states.
That is becoming less true every day as cases plummet, and people begin to enjoy their re-opened economies in many states.
But Democrats are still holding on for dear life to retain these powers they have become so accustomed to.
There is no Governor this applies to more than Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan.
Being that she commands a state that Trump won in 2016, she is trying to use her new powers in unprecedented ways to prevent that from happening again.
Speaking to the Associated Press (AP), she made clear that she doesn’t want Trump to be able to hold a campaign rally in her state before the November election.
Some of President Trump’s most successful rallies have been in Michigan, and they likely are the reason he won that state few expected him to in 2016.
She told AP, “We know that congregating without masks, especially at an indoor facility, is the worst thing to do in the midst of a global pandemic.”
Whitmer then admitted that she isn’t sure of what legal tools she can use to stop Trump from holding a rally, before adding that she is looking to limit them in any way if she can’t stop it outright.
“I just know we have limitations on the number of people that can gather and that we’re taking this seriously,” she said.
She then attacked her own citizens following a petition that was circulated to try to limit her powers.
“I want to be very clear, any attempt to strip away the powers of the Governor during this time is irresponsible, dangerous, and foolish,” Whitmer said.
Whitmer was given insane amounts of power due to coronavirus, and isn’t going to give them up without a fight, proven by her signing an executive order to extend her state of emergency until July 16.
