ABC News reports:
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign says it’s still planning to hold rallies leading up to November’s election, despite public health experts warning large gatherings should be put on hold until as late as next year. Since freezing campaign rallies in March amid the growing coronavirus pandemic, the Trump campaign has repeatedly pledged that the centerpiece events of the president’s reelection effort will return.
“This coronavirus will pass and the president is looking forward to getting back out on the campaign trail and holding rallies,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told ABC News. During a digital campaign event earlier this week, which have replaced campaign events for the time being, Murtaugh told supporter to “never fear” and that the president was “certain” rallies would return.
