WATCH: Whitmer blames Trump’s rhetoric for threats and creating a “dangerous environment”

Appearing with Alex Witt on MSNBC, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer blamed Trump’s rhetoric for creating a “very dangerous environment.”

Witt asked Whitmer “Do you think that violent threats will subside after January 20th when there’s no more to be said and we have a new president?”

Whitmer replied “let’s be clear, the rhetoric of 2020 has been driven by the White House, and it has created a very dangerous environment for people who are simply trying to do their jobs.” She added “our secretary of state who ran an excellent election by all measures, the Georgia secretary of state, Republican, same situation. Dr. Fauci even has gotten threats.”
