The Independent reports:
Around 65 minutes into his Nevada rally the president went on a rambling rant about Biden’s plans for the state of Nevada and in a seemingly unrelated note added that Biden will completely end the Christmas season.
“Under the Biden lockdown, the lights of Reno and Las Vegas were extinguished. Carson City will become a ghost town. If he comes in, Carson City will become a ghost town. And the Christmas season will be cancelled.”
Trump didn’t really explain how or why Biden would do this but almost immediately went on to another story, claiming that he had single-handedly got people saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.

Trump attacked Joe Biden, but seemed to forget who the president is for 2020. https://t.co/TgNdkU6ZJs

If Christmas is canceled, it’s because Trump’s inability to contain the virus made it impossible for people to visit their families.
(Also, even if Biden wins, Trump will still be president in December.) https://t.co/QmDmvvziQk
