  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer responds to Trump’s taunts” – below is their description.

    Tomorrow President Trump heads for Michigan, another state he won by the narrowest of margins in 2016 – just under 11,000 votes. The polls there currently show a healthy lead for Joe Biden, but there’s tension in the air. The President has spent much of this year throwing verbal jabs at Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Her strict measures against coronavirus have not gone down well among many of Donald Trump’s supporters, or with anti-government militias, who believe their freedoms are being trampled on.
