President Donald Trump travels to the political swing state of Michigan on Thursday to visit a Ford plant amid tension with the state’s Democratic governor and differences over the speed at which the country is reopening from its COVID-19 shutdown.

Trump, a Republican who is running for re-election this November, has urged states to loosen coronavirus-related restrictions so the economy can recover.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a potential running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, is facing backlash against her stay-at-home orders.

Trump threatened on Wednesday to withhold funding from the state over its plan for expanded mail-in voting, saying without evidence that it could lead to voter fraud.
