Trump campaign accuses Michigan governor of encouraging Trump assassination attempt

The Trump campaign claimed on Monday that Trump has been targeted by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who allegedly platformed a message tacitly encouraging an assassination attempt on the President.

Whitmer appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press on Monday to attack Trump’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, and the Trump campaign claimed that she was subtly signaling to extremists to “86” Trump, who is the 45th president of the United States.

“Governor Gretchen Whitmer displayed an “86 45″ sign during her TV appearance,” The Trump War Room tweeted on Monday, accompanied by a screengrab of Whitmer speaking into a camera. The numbers 86 and 45 are visible in the bottom left corner.

“86 can be shorthand for killing someone,” the Trump campaign continued. “Whitmer is encouraging assassination attempts against President Trump just weeks after someone sent a ricin-laced package to the White House.”

Fox News pointed out:

Tori Saylor, deputy digital and creative director for Whitmer, retweeted an account praising the governor for placing the digits “8645” in the background of the interview. The tweet included a screenshot of Whitmer during the NBC TV spot, and read: “Bright and beautiful. Nothing but respect. RBG. 8645. Nice plant, too. 10/10,” before tagging the governor.

Whitmer has not responded to the accusation, but the Trump War Room is taking major heat for the shocking claim, with many on both the right and the left criticizing the interpretation of the mysterious numbers. Some pointed out that to “86” something means to cancel, not kill.

Meanwhile, Whitmer herself has accused President Trump of similar conduct, claiming during the interview that Trump has incited acts of “domestic terrorism” by encouraging Michigan voters to remove her from office due to her poor handling of her state’s COVID-19 prevention measures.

“It’s incredibly disturbing that the President of the United States — 10 days after a plot to kidnap, put me on trial, and execute me — 10 days after that was uncovered, the president is at it again and inspiring, incentivizing and inciting this kind of domestic terrorism,” Whitmer said in response to a clip of Trump calling on voters to oust her

Whitmer was allegedly the subject of a kidnapping plot exposed at the beginning of October. The FBI announced on October 8 the arrests of 13 suspects that allegedly conspired to attempt the abduction of Whitmer in a plot to overthrow the state’s government.

  1. No reason why she is still the Governor. This is the level of ignorance the Demonic Rat Lobotomy party shows daily. If these morons were Republicans they would be in jail. If Trump said he was holding up a billion to any country he would be jailed that day or fake impeached.
    Anyone in their right mind would leave the Rats party of corrupt liars. They are a disgrace to America and themselves

  2. Did Gov. Whitmer ever stop to think that her draconian lockdowns and keeping her state under her iron fist might have triggered all this? People do not like bieng held under lock and key! They want to get back to work and living, her restrictions were too heavy handed! It isn’t President Trumps fault that people had enough and want to get her out of office. And he didn’t send anyone to kidnap her. This should be a wake up call for her. She has abused her power over the state, gone power hungry, and abused the people of Michigan. It is time to recall her.

  3. Why do they get by with it????
    If I encouraged publicly to just harm the President, I would have to pay for it.
    This double standard is wrong.

  4. She called for help after supporting the BLM and Antifa. I am surprised she didn’t just jump into the middle of them and burn down some buildings. She is guilty and should go to jail. It is called sedition and traitor to this country!

  5. Whitmer is the typical power mad fool.Sshe will never surrender the power she has grabbed under dubious circumstance. A typical dictator completely. Incompetant completely illegitimate.completely criminal.Fire Her Before lts Too Late
