Reno Airport: Planned Trump Rally Violates Lockdown

The Nevada Independent reports:

The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority has advised the company that leases the hangar where President Donald Trump plans to hold a campaign rally on Saturday that the event is in violation of a state directive limiting gatherings to 50 people and that they cannot proceed.

Tina Iftiger, senior vice president and chief commercial officer for the airport authority, in a letter to Hangar 9, LLC on Tuesday said that the company’s decision to enter into a contract to use the hangar for a 5,000 person rally violates Gov. Steve Sisolak’s emergency directive on public gatherings.

The company’s lease of the hangar requires the company to “comply with all applicable state laws and directives,” Iftiger wrote. “Such a rally is a violation of this directive,” she said. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
