President Donald Trump encouraged the governor of Michigan to 'give a little' and negotiate with armed protesters who entered the state capital building to oppose her coronavirus lockdown order. Trump advised she should give in order to 'put out the fire,' and called the protesters 'good people' who are 'angry.'
President Donald Trump on Friday urged Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to 'give a little' to armed anti-lockdown protesters who stormed the state Capitol building in Lansing brandishing rifles.
Trump provided his negotiating advice hours after hundreds of protesters gathered outside the Capitol building demanding Whitmer lift her order barring residents from a variety of establishments until the number of coronavirus cases comes down.
'The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire,' Trump wrote.
'These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal,' Trump tweeted Friday morning.
