In April, Trump called upon people to "liberate" Michigan after Gov. Whitmer issued coronavirus orders. A kidnapping plot was later hatched by men upset over her orders.

Today, a Trump coronavirus advisor calls upon people to "rise up" over another coronavirus order by the Gov.
Gov. Whitmer responds to Dr. Scott Atlas' call to "rise up" against her new coronavirus order:

"the White House likes to single us out here in Michigan...I'm not going to be bullied into not following reputable scientists and medical professionals"…
Trump adviser Scott Atlas is now saying he was not endorsing violence when he called for people to “rise up” against new 3-week restrictions in Michigan on some activities:
Joe Biden responds today to Trump advisor Scott Atlas' call for people to "rise up" against the Michigan Governor's new 3-week coronavirus order: "What the hell is the matter with these guys?"
On Fox News, Trump advisor Dr. Scott Atlas explains his call in a tweet for Michiganders to “rise up” against new state coronavirus guidelines: “I’m not very good at Twitter. I didn’t mean anything that people are inferring”
