It’s interesting that President Trump came out on Sunday saying he is “with everybody” who are protesting against Democratic governors that are looking to take away civil liberties.
“You are allowed to protest,” Trump said at Sunday’s White House briefing on the pandemic.
“Some have gone too far, some governors have gone too far. Some of the things that happened are maybe not so appropriate,” the president continued
“As far as protesters, you know, I see protesters for all sorts of things,” he added. “And I’m with everybody. I’m with everybody.”
The comment came after the president tweeted on Friday to “liberate” Democratic-led states Minnesota, Michigan and Virginia. The separate tweets were in reference to draconian measures the governors of these three states instituted by way of a Covid-19 response.
“They have got cabin fever,” Trump said. “Their life was taken away from them. These people love our country, they want to get back to work.”
The president on Saturday criticized Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for being too strict in her state’s lockdown including saying vegtable seeds were not to be sold since they are not essential products.
Trump also cited Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam for attempting to initiate gun-control measures that have nothing to do with the coronavirus.
