Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) called out President Donald Trump Saturday after he lashed out at her during a Saturday rally.

After mocking the governor for her mask mandate, Trump told the audience that they need to pressure her to reopen the state and to send children back to school. The crowd then began chanting, “Lock her up!” a rallying cry that was used by Trump in 2016 against former Secretary Hillary Clinton.

“Lock ’em all up,” Trump laughed as the audience chanted.

Whitmer was recently the target of a kidnapping and assassination plot. To make matters worse, the militia members who sought to take her down also wanted to blow up the Michigan capitol building, with members of both sides of the aisle inside.

“This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials’ lives in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow Americans,” tweeted Whitmer on Saturday. “It needs to stop.”

The governor’s digital director explained that after Trump says things like this, she sees a huge increase in violent rhetoric about her online.
