Trump Wants “No Masks, No Distancing” At Convention

The Independent reports:

Donald Trump is demanding a packed Republican national convention with “no face coverings and no social distancing,” North Carolina’s governor’s office has said. The US president spoke with Democrat governor Roy Cooper by phone, the office revealed, where they discussed the scheduled August convention in Charlotte.

During the call, when Mr Trump “insisted on a full convention arena with no face coverings and no social distancing the governor expressed concerns and suggested a scaled-back event with fewer attendees,” spokesperson Sadie Weiner wrote in an email. “They agreed to continue talking about ways to have a safe convention in Charlotte.”
