NATIONAL — President Trump took to Twitter to express his disappointment in Governor Gretchen Whitmer's after a plot to kidnap her was thwarted.

"Governor Gretchen Whitmer has done a terrible job." The President began. Altogether the series of tweets has already seen over 17,000 retweets and almost 75,000 likes on the social media platform.

He calls Whitmer out for calling him a White Supremecist and condemns Biden and Democrats for not condemning "Antifa, Anarchists, looters and Mobs that burn down Democrat run cities..." while saying he defends all Americans, even those who attack him.

In contrast, other political leaders and Michigan celebrities used their social media platforms expressing gratitude to the FBI and law enforcement for their efforts.

The investigation into the plot and conspirators is still ongoing, but has already lead to 13 arrests on the state and federal levels, raids in locations across the state, a multitude of charges, and more questions than answers. Stay tuned to FOX 17 as this story develops.
