President Trump, during a rally in Michigan, is blaming Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for why Michigan Football doesn’t have a season this year:
Trump just now at rally in Saginaw: “We want a governor who wants to play Big Ten football.” Adds “I hope they don’t leave Michigan out” in reiterating the push for Big Ten football.

Whitmer, who allowed for HS football to return, had no influence on the B1G canceling the season. She did, however, say that she agreed with their decision:
Just a reminder that Gov. Whitmer has no control over the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, which are run by boards who members are elected statewidem. Michigan Constitution gives them autonomy from the state. https://t.co/ZsUNYn8uV7
