The tweets were instantly met with fury and utter disbelief online, with many users accusing the POTUS of inciting violence.
A day earlier, Trump's Coronavirus task force announced that the decision of when to reopen each state will be largely left to individual governors.
This coincided with massive protests in the three states, as residents -- mainly Trump supporters, judging by the flags -- demanded the strict social distancing laws be lifted.
In Michigan, "Operation Gridlock" saw thousands get in their cars and converge in the state capital, many of them openly carrying guns, but not necessarily wearing masks, and chanting "lock her up!" at Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
In Minnesota, protesters descended on the home of Governor Tim Walz.
"A small segment of the state is protesting and that's their right," Gov Whitmer told CNN. "The sad part is, though, that the more they're out and about, the more likely they are to spread Covid-19 and the more likely we're going to have to take this posture for a longer period of time."
While Trump has continuously hinted at reopening the country on an ever-shifting date just around the corner, health officials -- including Dr Anthony Fauci and Dr Deborah Birx, who are the faces of the White House's fight against the virus -- continue to advise staying at home and maintaining social distancing, as they attempt to flatten the curve of the spread and protect health systems from being overwhelmed.

LIBERATE AMERICA from Trump's failure to come up with a plan for testing.
A lot of people who want to "Liberate America" don't understand that until there's adequate testing and/or a viable treatment or vaccine, we need to stay home - just like Trump did during Vietnam. #StayHomeLikeTrumpinVietnam
Trump's reckless rhetoric could encourage--let's be honest, it will encourage, and it's intended to encourage--his followers to ignore lawful state orders. It will lead to lawless acts that endanger the well-being of other Americans. Republicans, conservatives--you ok with that? https://t.co/GREvhBfrBM
Actually, we tried to liberate America from Trump, in an entirely appropriate and constitutional way. But the Senate Republicans wouldn't hold a real trial, ignored the evidence and voted to keep Trump in office.
Trump tweeting “Liberate Michigan” is so irresponsible and dangerous. He just put us all at risks by telling the crazies it's ok to come out. The rural hospitals could never handle being inundated with Coronavirus cases. Does he want certain people to get sick and die?
This is what the alleged President of the United States tweets during a global pandemic that has killed over 34,000? Something that will incite VIOLENCE from an already enraged base of poorly educated taking every word you say verbatim? We need to liberate America from YOU.
.@Jack and @TwitterSafety, if your rules mean anything, you need to suspend Trump from your platform NOW for inciting violence. If not, you can expect a big lawsuit if — God forbid — someone gets killed as a result of Trump's Twitter rants. pic.twitter.com/s1PzoEIPlc
