Meanwhile, democrats are blasting Trump for holding in-person events amid COVID-19 and for his handling of the pandemic.
“He knew how deadly this virus was and he tried to hide it,” said Tom Perez — Chair of the Democratic National Committee. “He knew it, but he didn’t care. He played it down, and the death toll went up and up and up.”
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden also released a statement on Trump’s visit, saying in part, “Nevadans don’t need more bluster from the president, and don’t need his reckless rallies that ignore the realities of COVID-19 and endanger public health. Nevada families need solutions.”
