"The president has to realize that the words of the president of the United States weigh a ton," Pelosi told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. "And in our political dialogue, to inject fear tactics into it, especially a woman governor and her family, is so irresponsible."

The speaker criticized Trump for calling for his supporters to "get your governor to open up your state, okay? And get your schools open" during his rally in Western Michigan in reference to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

"But the people have awakened to him, 26 million people already voting," she added. "The biggest anecdote to his poison is the vote."

Saturday's "lock her up" chants against Whitmer came more than a week after the FBI announced it foiled a militia group's plans to kidnap her and Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D), partly over their coronavirus restrictions.

Trump further planted doubt in Whitmer by saying the crowd needed to "be careful of her and her attorney general because you know they're like in charge of the ballot stuff."

"How the hell do I put my political and our country's political life in the hands of a pure partisan like that?" he told the crowd.

The governor herself responded to Trump's and his rallygoers' remarks in a Twitter post, saying "This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials' lives in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow Americans."

"It needs to stop," she added.

She previously said the president was "complicit" in stoking extremist groups after the FBI first announced the arrests of those attempting to abduct her.
