Does Whitmer Support Rashida Tlaib’s Latest Call to Abolish the Police?

LANSING, MICH—Does Michigan Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer support Radical Democrat U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s renewed efforts to abolish the police and U.S. military?

“Policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist,” Rep. Tlaib said last night. “No more policing, incarceration, and militarization.”

Whitmer, just last year, expressed support for the spirit of defunding the police and has remained silent on whether she supports abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which protects America’s borders.

“Tlaib continues to reveal the direction today’s Democrat Party is heading and Gov. Whitmer should immediately denounce Tlaib’s disparaging and hateful comments directed toward the brave men in women who protect us here at home, and abroad,” said Ted Goodman, Communications Director of the Michigan Republican Party. “It’s also pretty rich calling for the abolishment of police and the military from behind military-installed fortifications and national guard troops on Capitol Hill.”
