Gretchen Whitmer Explains Michigan
Governor Gretchen Whitmer spoke at a press conference in Michigan to cover in detail the "Stay-Home" order she gave the state. She explained that the order will have Michigan residents stay in their homes for a minimum of three weeks in order to slow the spread of coronavirus. She also says the state of Michigan has not yet gotten what they need from the federal government, saying that President Donald Trump's most recent speech leaves all states on their own. Whitmer says that she has seen the best of people during these trying times and that makes her proud to be a Michigan resident.
