(WXYZ) — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel responded to a tweet from President Donald Trump overnight Saturday into Sunday, saying that the president is "not our type."

It started when Trump tweeted a Breitbart article about Nessel and saying in part that Nessel "should be sanctioned."

Nessel responded after Trump called other lawyers who are trying to overturn the election "patriots."

"A patriot is a person who vigorously defends their country against its enemies and detractors. History will reveal which you were," Nessel responded in a tweet. "I wish you loved your country half as much as you love yourself. Also, time to stop obsessing about those women from Michigan. You’re not our type."
