In a tweet this Friday morning, President Trump urged Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer to "give a little" when it comes to the armed protesters swarming around the state's Capitol.

"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."

In the comment thread beneath his tweet, many saw Trump's words as another example of him enabling the protests, much like he did with his "liberate" tweets from last month.
