Trump Issues Forceful Call To 'Liberate' Virginia, Michigan and Minnesota

Trump Issues Forceful Call To 'Liberate' Virginia, Michigan and Minnesota
President Donald Trump issued calls to “liberate” Virginia, Michigan and Minnesota in a series of tweets Friday morning.
The president’s first tweet read: “LIBERATE MINNESOTA!”
Protesters gathered outside of Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz’s residence in St. Paul on Thursday, ahead of another protest planned on Friday, urging Walz to reopen the state amid the coronavirus pandemic, KSTP-TV reported.
The protest used the slogan “Liberate Minnesota” and the Facebook event page said, “It is not the governor’s place to restrict free movement of Minnesota citizens.”
Trump then tweeted, “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!”

Although the “Operation Gridlock” Facebook event told people to stay in their cars and protest with signs, many people gathered on the steps of the Michigan State Capitol building.
The final state Trump called to liberate was Virginia.
Protesters had also gathered in Richmond, Virginia’s Capitol Square on Thursday to protest restrictions Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam had put on the state during the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Washington Post.
In the midst of the pandemic, Northam had also signed gun control measures into law to increase background checks, limit purchases of handguns and implement a “red-flag” law, USA Today reported.
Trump had weighed in on the issue in a January tweet as 20,000 gun owners and gun rights supporters gathered in Richmond to oppose the proposed gun restrictions.
In his Friday tweets, Trump also criticized New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and said he should “spend more time ‘doing’ and less time ‘complaining.'”
“Get out there and get the job done,” he tweeted.
Governor Cuomo should spend more time “doing” and less time “complaining”. Get out there and get the job done. Stop talking! We built you thousands of hospital beds that you didn’t need or use, gave large numbers of Ventilators that you should have had, and helped you with....

“Stop talking!”
Trump on Thursday talked about those protesting coronavirus restrictions at their state capitols, saying “they listen to me” and “seem to be protesters that like me.”
“They all want to open. Nobody wants to stay shut, but they want to open safely. So do I, but we have large sections of the country right now that can start thinking about opening. There’ll be some mitigation and they’ll keep it going for a period of time,” he said at the daily coronavirus briefing.

“So, that will be a governor’s choice and we’ll have no problem with it.”
