Wednesday, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) blamed President Donald Trump for a group of individuals reportedly engaging in a plot to kidnap himself and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).
Northam said on CNN’s “New Day” that people like those plotting to kidnap governors “take their marching orders” from people like President Donald Trump, who he said is “emboldening” white supremacists. Northam backed up that assertion by repeating the popular claim from Democrats that Trump called white supremacists in Charlottesville “very fine people.”
