While Donald Trump may have won Michigan in 2016, the state is quite blue. Both Michigan senators are Democrats as is governor Gretchen Whitmer and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

But the Trump administration has had a very tough time in the court room. Legal firms like Jones Day quickly decided against representing Donald Trump after seeing how poorly their efforts were going over in the court of public opinion.
President Donald Trump attacked the state of Michigan for the second day in a row, claiming, without any evidence, that voter fraud in the city of Detroit is “rampant.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has sent letters to the Democratic governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan to ascertain whether states violated federal law by ordering nursing homes to accept recovering COVID-19 patients from hospitals, an action that critics say spread the novel coronavirus and possibly contributed to the death toll.

Mark Schlissel, the university president, made the announcement in a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Anyone who endures the Trump presidency understands why there’s a minimum age qualification to be president. Trump proved, however, that chronological age doesn’t necessarily reflect the maturity that one needs to make rational decisions as the president of the United States. Trump’s outbursts are more like that of a two-year-old having a tantrum than of a grown man in control of his emotions.
Donald Trump has a legal responsibility to wear a face covering when he visits Michigan on Tuesday, according to the state’s attorney general. The President has not worn a mask in public yet.

“Anyone who has potentially been recently exposed, including the President of the United States, has not only a legal responsibility, but also a social and moral responsibility, to take reasonable precautions to prevent further spread of the virus,” she wrote.
Nessel, a Democrat, reminded Trump that Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s recent executive order required manufacturing facilities to “suspend all non-essential in-person visits, including tours.”
Whitmer’s order also requires “that any individual able to medically tolerate a facial covering wear one when in any enclosed public space.”
