(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."
Michigan AG Dana Nessel Pursues Sanctions Against Lawyers Questioning Election https://t.co/Hb5xckedoN via @BreitbartNews These lawyers are true patriots who are fighting for the truth and, obviously, getting very close. AG should be sanctioned. Fight on!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2020
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."
