'I can't help but think about the small businesses who are suffering through the pandemic,'

Detroit Police Chief James Craig, who is recently retired, blasted Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's failed leadership of the state and also announced a gubernatorial exploratory committee.

Craig, who has led Detroit's law enforcement force over the past eight years, said he "protected and served for 44 years" and now wants to do the same for the state of Michigan.

"We launched today the Chief James Craig For Governor Exploratory Committee," the Republican said.

He noted the city of Detroit was protected from left-wing riots in 2020 under his watch.

"We know what happened last year when other cities were burning – Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago – Detroit did not burn."

Whitmer is often mentioned alongside fellow liberal governors of New York, California, Pennsylvania, when criticism of draconian lockdowns.

"I can't help but think about the small businesses who are suffering through the pandemic -- and now we want to give … handouts, and businesses cant even hire employees," Craig lamented.

"I've got to tell you – I'm running because when I look at politicians across the country – when I look at Governor Whitmer, she follows different rules – she just does."

"This is about leadership – you can't take that away from me – I'm a fighter."

Host Tucker Carlson predicted that Craig would likely be faced with leftists attacks following his move.

"Bring it," Craig replied.

"I'm ready for it."

In April, White House press secretary Jen Psaki praised Whitmer.

Whitmer has faced problems explaining why there are surging coronavirus cases in the state despite her ongoing lockdowns and mask requirements.

Psaki defended Whitmer, whom the White House denied a “vaccine surge.”

“She’s done a tremendous job in our view,” Psaki told reporters.

Whitmer was later accused of making false statements about her travels during the pandemic after it emerged that she broke her own rules to visit her father in Florida.

Whitmer has defended her trip following accusations of hypocrisy, saying:

"It is saddening. It is a two-day trip. I wasn't partying in Miami."
