Michigan governor says manufacturers were told ‘NOT to send her supplies’ after Trump’s outburst

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said Friday manufacturers were told ‘not to send her supplies’ after Donald Trump‘s ‘that woman’ outburst in his daily briefing.   

Speaking with WWJ News Radio Whitmer said:  ‘What I’ve gotten back is that vendors with whom we’ve procured contracts — they’re being told not to send stuff to Michigan. 

‘It’s really concerning, I reached out to the White House last night and asked for a phone call with the president.’

By Saturday Trump had approved a major disaster declaration for Michigan, providing additional money to address the coronavirus pandemic there.

The move followed a bitter war of words between the president and Whitmer, who he had labeled ‘that woman’ in a press conference Friday. 

Whitmer, a Democrat, has repeatedly criticized the Trump administration for being slow to respond to the pandemic.

Trump said in an interview this week that ‘we’ve had a big problem with the young, a woman governor from, you know who I’m talking about, from Michigan.’ He later said: ‘We don’t like to see the complaints.’

‘I think they should be appreciative,’ he said during his daily White House briefing Friday. ‘When they’re not appreciative to me. They are not appreciative to the army corps. They are not appreciative to FEMA. It’s not right.’

He added that: ‘If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call.’ 

Whitmer tweeted in response that she had ‘asked repeatedly and respectfully for help,’ adding, ‘You said you stand with Michigan — prove it.’

On Friday night Trump tweeted again, referring to the governor as ‘Gretchen ‘Half’ Whitmer’ and saying she ‘Likes blaming everyone for her own ineptitude!’  

The White House announced the disaster declaration Saturday, making money available for crisis counseling and other emergency measures. 

Gov. Whitmer had sought funds to set up field hospitals and help provide food and housing to people affected by the virus.

She wrote on Twitter Saturday: ‘Had a good call with @VP this morning. We’ll keep working around the clock with FEMA and the White House to get more of the personal protective equipment we need to keep Michiganders safe.’ 

Whitmer said in the tweet that the state had received more than 112,000 protective masks from the national strategic stockpile, with 8,000 more on the way.
