Coronavirus USA Updates: Michigan governor reacts to Lansing protests

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is calling Thursday’s protests in Lansing “disturbing, to be quite honest.”

“Swastikas and the confederate flag, nooses and automatic rifles do not represent who we are as Michiganders,” Whitmer said Friday.

“I know that some people are angry, and I know that many are feeling restless … it’s OK to feel that way,” she said. “There is nothing that I want more than to just flip the switch and return to normal, but that’s not how it’s going to work, unfortunately. The only way we can get through this and take the next steps forward is if we all continue to do our part.”
