Trump also made light of a militia group's plot to kidnap the Democratic governor that the FBI says it disrupted earlier this month. Whitmer responded on NBC's "Meet the Press".
    "The President is at it again and inspiring and inciting this kind of domestic terrorism. It is wrong. It's got to end."
    Whitmer said the President rhetoric is dangerous for public servants who are trying to protect their constituents(保护自己选民). Trump's daughter-in-law Laura Trump disagrees. She told CNN the President was just "having fun at a rally".
