MI Gov Blasts Trump’s “Ridiculous” Threat To Defund

NBC News reports:

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday slammed President Donald Trump’s threats to withhold federal funding from her state as “ridiculous,” a “distraction” and “scary.”

In an interview with “CBS This Morning,” Whitmer was asked about the president’s vow to withhold funding in response to Michigan’s pursuit of mass mail-in voting. She did not spare words. “You can only imagine how I feel about that,” Whitmer, a Democrat, said.

“To have this kind of distraction is just ridiculous to be honest,” the governor said. “The threatening to take money away from a state that is hurting as bad as we are right now is just scary, and, I think, something that is unacceptable.”
