Biden Blames Trump for Gretchen Whitmer Kidnap Attempt: 'Why Can't the President Just Say Stop?'


Former Vice President Joe Biden blamed President Donald Trump on Thursday for a foiled kidnapping plot by a group of extremists who intended to abduct Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

The FBI arrested six named alleged co-conspirators and seven others on Thursday morning for conspiring to kidnap the governor.

Though it did not name a specific political ideology, the FBI’s criminal complaint alleges that the members of the group “talked about creating a society that followed the U.S. Bill of Rights and where they could be self-sufficient.” Two apparently met at a Second Amendment rally. One member of the group, Brandon Caserta, was seen in an online video in front of an anarchist flag.

Biden, speaking to reporters in Arizona alongside running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), said Trump’s rhetoric was to blame:
