President Donald Trump intends to flout Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s edicts when he travels to a Ford plant in the state later this week.
Trump will be traveling to Ford Motor Co.’s Rawsonville manufacturing plant in Ypsilanti on Thursday despite Whitmer declaring that “non-essential” visits such as his are banned due to her shutdown policies that are crippling the state.
Whitmer’s administration, which has bullied and threatened ordinary citizens throughout Michigan, is effectively bowing to Trump while painting his visit in flagrant violation of her edicts as something the governor is celebrating.
“Ford and the UAW are doing incredible work for the country, and their ingenuity will save lives,” said Zack Pohl, who works as the communications director for Whitmer, in a statement.
“While the president’s visit is contrary to the governor’s order, this is an opportunity to showcase how important Michigan is to the response to COVID-19 and rebuilding our nation’s economy,” he added.
Trump has not officially determined whether or not he will wear a mask while visiting the Ford plant. Reports indicate that Ford is requesting that he wear one while touring the facility.
“I haven’t even thought of it. It depends. In certain areas I would, in certain areas I don’t. But I will certainly look at it. It depends on what situation,” Trump said when he was asked about whether or not he would wear a mask on Thursday.
“Am I standing right next to everybody, or am I spread out? And also you look, is something a hospital? Is it a ward? What is it exactly? I’m going to a plant. So we’ll see. Where it’s appropriate I would do it certainly,” he added.
“In preparation for the visit, we’ve shared with the White House all of Ford’s safety protocols, including our self-assessment, thermal scanning and manufacturing playbook which outlines our policy that everyone wears PPE,” a spokesman from Ford told the Detroit News.
Ford will not threaten Trump with an ultimatum to wear the mask. Trump has avoided wearing a mask during public appearances, showing that he will not succumb to the mass hysteria. The president is setting an example for ordinary Americans to overcome the media-induced panic.
“As we have said previously, we shared our safety policies and recommendations with the White House in advance of this visit. The White House has its own safety and testing policies in place and will make its own determination,” Ford said in a statement.
Trump has refused the advice of the deep state bureaucracy, which wants to scare people into wearing masks. The mask has emerged as a sign of cowardice and obsequiousness throughout the pandemic.
“The CDC is advising the use of non-medical cloth face covering as an additional voluntary public health measure. So it’s voluntary. You don’t have to do it. But they suggest it for a period of time. I don’t think I’m going to be doing it,” Trump said.
Trump’s appearance at the Ford plant on Thursday will be a thumb in the eye of Whitmer, who has kept Michigan in a state of fear throughout the pandemic to buoy her vice presidential ambitions.
President Trump’s Approval Rating is Highest Ever as Public Appreciates His Coronavirus Leadership
Trump is gaining in popularity amidst the crisis.
President Donald Trump’s approval ratings have soared to the highest point they have ever reached over the first two weeks of May, according to a recent Gallup poll.
The Gallup poll has Trump’s approval rating at 49 percent, which is higher than his previous two predecessors at the same time of their respective presidencies. This ties the highest approval numbers that Trump has had throughout his presidency and shows that Democrat attempts to blame him for the pandemic are not succeeding.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is expected to take on President Trump in November’s election, has released a video essentially blaming Trump for the outbreak:
Biden also released a video on his Twitter account blaming President Trump for the economic damage that has occurred because of the coronavirus pandemic and chiding him for trying to calm the panic-stricken American public throughout the crisis:

Last week, Big League Politics reported on polling data showing Trump that was leading Biden in a poll taken within 15 key battleground states:
New polling of voters in fifteen different battleground states shows President Donald Trump leading Democrat Joe Biden in the critical states, but trailing nationally.
The polling, conducted by research company SSRS for CNN, revealed that Trump is leading among a survey sample of 583 voters located in the critical states, while trailing nationally to Biden. Trump leads among battleground state voters by a margin of 52 to 45%, whereas Biden leads nationally by a margin of 51 to 46%.
The battleground states where voters were polled were Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
The varying polling results in battleground and national settings suggest the 2020 election could possibly be determined by the electoral college, in a situation where the candidate that wins the popular vote does not win the election. Democrats have become harsh critics of the electoral college system in recent years, generally neglecting to recognize that a popular vote election system in which conservative voters in Democrat-dominated states have much greater incentive to vote for President would result in different electoral outcomes.
The battleground polling suggests that Tara Reade’s allegation of sexual assault against Joe Biden has damaged his standing in national polls, with Biden’s solid lead declining from nearly a double-digit margin in recent weeks.
Trump also led Biden with independents, by a margin of 50 to 46%.
Biden’s fear-mongering tactics do not seem to be working in the eyes of voters, as Trump’s popularity continues to spike. His leadership ability is resonating with the American public and that does not bode well for the Democrats.
