Joe Biden suggested again on Friday that President Donald Trump was to blame for encouraging the militia members that were caught last week allegedly planning to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI).
Biden cited Trump’s “words,” though there is no evidence yet tying the suspects to Trump.
Another one had participated in a Black Lives Matter protest. The Washington Post reported: “One of alleged plotters, 23-year-old Daniel Harris, attended a Black Lives Matter protest in June, telling the Oakland County Times he was upset about the killing of George Floyd and police violence.”
