Conservative activist Meshawn Maddock said Thursday that thousands of protesters rallied to “peacefully protest” Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s lockdown, calling for the governor to figure out how to put people “back to work safely” amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“I thank God that we have President Trump at the helm of this ship of America because with leaders like Governor Whitmer, we’re lost,” the Michigan Conservative Coalition Chairwoman told “Fox & Friends.”
Maddock said that residents “feels oppressed” to be in Michigan right now and are not making extraordinary demands.
“What we are really asking for is for her to stop talking about what is essential and non-essential and just start looking at what is safe and what is unsafe. We know there are certain businesses and workers that should be able to safely get back to work right now,” said Maddock.
