    Whitmer: Feds told vendors not to send medical supplies to Michigan

    Whitmer: Feds told vendors not to send medical supplies to Michigan

    Gov. Gretchen Whitmer suggested Friday that a growing rift with the White House is affecting shipments of medical supplies to Michigan amid exponential growth in confirmed coronavirus cases. "When the federal government told us that we needed to go it ourselves, we started procuring every item we could get our hands on," Whitmer said Friday on WWJ 950AM. "What I've gotten back is that vendors with whom we had contracts are now being told not to send stuff here to Michigan. It's really concerning." -- "Your governor of Michigan, I mean, she's not stepping up," Trump said, who referred to Whitmer as "a woman governor" and not by her name. "I don't know if she knows what's going on, but all she does is sit there and blame the federal government. She doesn't get it done. And we send her a lot." During a Friday evening press conference, Trump said he's instructed Vice President Mike Pence, "don't call the woman in Michigan." "If they don't treat you right, I don't call," Trump said of Whitmer. "(Pence) is a different type of person. He'll call quietly anyway."

    I don't believe it.

    Michigan is a swing state that Trump can win. If what you post is true, Michigan will go to Biden.

    I hope the Biden campaign uses this against Trump in MI, WI & OH.

    You don't believe Whitmer, AND you believe Trump? Trump is lying about the fed govt role in providing emergency supplies. THAT IS THEIR ROLE.

    That dumbass must think people in Michigan will blame the Governor.

    Let's see.

    The word of Donald Trump? Or the word of the Governor of Michigan?

    Trump lost all credibility well over 2,000 lies ago.


    General Mattis chose America over Donald Trump.

    "What I've gotten back is that vendors with whom we had contracts are now being told not to send stuff here to Michigan. It's really concerning."

    I hope someone investigates exactly why the vendors told her that and why the Feds told the vendors to stop those already-agreed-to orders to Michigan. Trump is at fault on all kinds of things, but I can't pile on with this one until we know the full story here.
