Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer wholeheartedly supported Joe Biden’s event in the state slated for Wednesday but appeared to take issue with an event organized by the Trump campaign.
Her remarks: Whitmer, a Democrat, called Trump’s event “very distressing,” but seemed to have no problem with Biden’s event, because she suggested that unlike Trump, Biden would encourage supporters to wear masks.
Whitmer made the remarks in a CNN interview Tuesday, the same day Trump held a rally in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where many attendees could be seen wearing protective masks.
Citing no evidence, the governor told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that she’s worried President Trump would encourage supporters “to come maskless” to the rally.
