Trump Wonders If Alleged Whitmer Kidnapping Plot Was Really A Problem After All – By Matt Shuham (Talking Point Memo) / Oct 27 2020

President Donald Trump on Tuesday questioned the government’s case against a group of men accused of plotting to kidnap the governor of Michigan, saying at a rally that it might not have been a “problem” in the first place.

It was just the latest in a string of Trump attacks against Gretchen Whitmer, the Democratic governor of a crucial swing state.
