As protests against stay-at-home orders due to novel coronavirus break out around the country, Students for Trump, one of the main political groups backing President ''s reelection, is calling on its young members to join the efforts.


During a virtual convention on Friday for Students for Trump, the college campus arm of Turning Point USA, the group''s founder Charlie Kirk urged members to launch a "peaceful rebellion against governors" in states like Michigan and Wisconsin.

在周五为“美国转折点”组织大学校园分支“特朗普的学生”举行的一次虚拟大会上,该组织的创始人查理柯克(Charlie Kirk)敦促成员在密歇根州和威斯康星州等州发起一场“针对州长的和平叛乱”。

Kirk, speaking to over 500 members of the conservative nonprofit organization geared at activating college students to reelect the president who tuned in to the event, derided governors like Michigan''s Gretchen Whitmer for encroaching on their rights and urged them to join the protests around the country. The event was hosted on Zoom.

柯克对保守派的非营利组织500多名成员发表讲话,这些非营利组织的宗旨是让大学生选举特朗普连任总统。柯克嘲笑密歇根州的格雷琴·惠特默(Gretchen Whitmer)等州长侵犯了他们的权利,并敦促他们加入全国各地的抗议活动。该大会在Zoom软件上举行。

It''s not immediately clear if any protests have been organized due to Kirk''s comments.


Students for Trump serves a crucial role in the president''s youth vote effort, especially given the Trump campaign has not introduced its own student-focused coalition.


Two Trump campaign advisers, Lara Trump, the president''s daughter-in-law, and John Pence, the vice president''s nephew, appeared at the virtual convention following Kirk''s comments.


After first claiming to have "total" regarding reopening their states, the president said on Tuesday he''d be "authorizing each individual governor of each individual state to implement a reopening, and a very powerful reopening plan of their state at a time and in a manner as most appropriate."


Trump seemingly encouraged protesters in a string of tweets on Friday.


The president took to Twitter in support of Michiganders, Minnesotans and Virginians protesting against restrictions, saying in separate all-caps tweets: "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!"; "LIBERATE MINNESOTA!"; and "LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!"


Trump was asked about whether a protest in Wisconsin organized by White House economic adviser Stephen Moore is in opposition to his own guidance.

特朗普被问及,白宫经济顾问斯蒂芬摩尔(Stephen Moore)在威斯康星州组织的抗议活动是否与他自己的指导意见相抵触。

The president responded by saying there''s "a lot of injustice," specifically going on to reference Virginia, where he said "they want to take your guns away," though he didn''t explain how that was connected to coronavirus.


Others, including some flashing signs supporting the president, gathered at the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing, Michigan.


Before calling on young Student for Trump members to protest amid the coronavirus pandemic, Kirk in late March calling coronavirus "deadly serious" and urging "Millennials and Gen Z" to "keep yourselves and others safe."


"To college students, and all my fellow 20 somethings: Do better. Show some regard for the communities you call home. Consider the lives of those around you, those who raised you and love you. Their well-being may depend on the decisions you make today," Kirk wrote.
