On Thursday, Michigan’s attorney general threatened President Trump that he will be told not to visit any enclosed facility in Michigan in the future if he didn’t wear a face mask when visiting a Ford Motor plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Thursday afternoon.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, who like Governor Gretchen Whitmer is a Democrat, told CNN, “Honestly, if he fails to wear a mask, he’s going to be asked not to return to any enclosed facility inside our state,” The Daily Mail reported.

In late April, Whitmer issued an executive order stating, “Any individual able to medically tolerate a face covering must wear a covering over his or her nose and mouth—such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief—when in any enclosed public space … all businesses and operations whose workers perform in-person work must, at a minimum, provide non-medical grade face coverings to their workers.”

“Ford has a policy that all visitors must wear personal protective equipment and originally indicated Trump would wear one. But the company later backed down and said the White House has its own protective procedures and will make its own determinations about whether masks will be worn,” The Daily Mail noted.

Nessel continued, “’I know that Ford has asked him to do the same thing, but if we know that he’s coming to our state, and we know he’s not going to follow the law, I think we’re going to have to take action against any company or any facility that allows him inside those facilities and puts our workers at risk. We simply can’t afford it here in our state … We are just asking that President Trump comply with the law in our state, just as we would make the same request of anyone else in those plants … We’re asking if President Trump doesn’t care about his own health, doesn’t care about the health and the safety of people who work in those facilities, at least care about the economic situation of, you know, costing these facilities so much money by having to close down and disinfect the plant after he leaves.”

Nessel also wrote an open letter to Trump Wednesday in which she stated:

In light of the current global health crisis, Governor Whitmer has issued Executive Orders designed to safeguard the sustained viability of our businesses and protect the health and safety of our workers. Executive Order 2020-91 requires that manufacturing facilities “suspend all non- essential in-person visits, including tours.” (Section 4) It also requires facilities to conduct a daily screening protocol for employees and “any other individuals entering the facility” (Section 4), and that everyone on the worksite be “kept at least six feet from one another to the maximum extent possible.” (Section 1)

Moreover, Executive Order 2020-92 requires that any individual able to medically tolerate a facial covering wear one when in any enclosed public space. (Section 15) We know that Ford Motor Company takes the legal requirements of the Governor’s Executive Orders very seriously. In fact, a spokesperson for Ford has confirmed that the company shared its safety protocols with the White House in advance of your trip.

While my Department will not act to prevent you from touring Ford’s plant, I ask that while you are on tour you respect the great efforts of the men and women at Ford – and across this State – by wearing a facial covering. It is not just the policy of Ford, by virtue of the Governor’s Executive Orders. It is currently the law of this State.

    Whata’ CLOWN! These Dems are just LOVING their power! There is no “mask Law”, there is a directive, not enforceable above HER domain, like in Federal Court.. but that is the point. Now that Two State Courts have made reverses on Governors DIRECTIVES.. we will soon the Appeals from Governors to the Supreme Court. And this has been the intent all along. Scare the crap out of everybody, then when someone files cases get the cases to the S.C. for a decision if the Governors can take Constitutional rights away, any Rights, any at all, Assembly, practicing Religion..whateverrrrr, so as ‘to be able to save lives.. this is how it is being played out: The Dems are hoping to keep people unemployed, but with massive ‘Unemployment… people will be thinking they should be scared even more(some will be making 40-50-60 grand on unemployment/Covid extras depending on family size.. Governors will continue being highly dramatic they ‘are saving us’ even more, this keeps people from rioting in the streets and dying at home instead! Meanwhile the S.C. will see people willing to put p with it, figure ‘go along to get along’ with the Leftists… we’ll see at least a 5-4 in favor of the Governors at the S.C. level with Roberts being blackmailed by Obama for his falsifying adoption paperwork, Might even see Kavanaugh fold like a cheap suit giving a 6-3 decision so as not to have to hear ‘Ballsy Ford!, Ballsy Ford!’ ever again.
    Once the Dems get this power grab via allowance to declare ‘Emergency powers’ we will have a litany or ‘Emergency Declarations’… going on forever. Gun violence will be declared a ‘Emergency’…. and the other Amendments Rights under other Emergency conditions self declared by Governors will restrict just about any rights of any American.
    America will be finished as a world super power the minute the S.C. court decides for the Governors… all that left needing be applied is a ‘Emergency’… and there will be lots and lots of those!!! Each time a Governor makes a emergency, a declaration it will require another trip to the S.C. to stop them and few will attempt after the Covid cases lose to Governors… it will be slowed going through the courts to the S.C. unlike now where it is speedily going up the chain. Any draconian restriction of rights will require a year to get a S.C. court decision after the Covid cases are done and we lose one of the first Ten Amendment Rights for a year anyway, The Reason the 2nd Amendment rights will be after ‘Covid’ is there are verifiable deaths every year, like Covid will be… just as the Flu already is- every year. Once guns are ‘out of the way… say goodbye American Pie… we now live in the Gaza Strip… ruled by Tyrants!
    It all starts with these Governors and Covid.

    This one looks worse than Whitmer – she’s as hard- no heart whatsoever, as they can come. She does not reflect the feelings of Michiganders and is acting solely by her personal and political standards. She has made a mockery of herself in representing us because she doesn’t. I’ve heard she plans on making Ford Motor pay for their decision of not ordering President Trump to wear mask or get out. I stand with Ford Motor. They have sense of respect for the Office of the President itself, and this communist idiot has no respect at all. This communist Democrat administration is extremely petty, vengeful, abusive, dictatorial and hard-hearted. How did majority of Michiganders not see them for who and what they are???? This is the true reality of the communist Democrat Party. Please remove the rose colored glasses and see and accept this truth. Trump/Pence 2020,
    John James 2020
