As Campaign Closes, Trump’s Failed COVID-19 Response On Full Display
November 2, 2020
Trump is closing out the campaign by putting his failed coronavirus response on full display. He continues to parade around the country holding potential superspreader rallies that have already led to hundreds of deaths and lying to voters about the coronavirus while it surges and even hits new records in their states.
Trump’s superspreader rallies over the summer led to 30,000 cases and over 700 deaths.
Politico: “President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies between June and September may have caused some 30,000 coronavirus infections and more than 700 deaths, according to a new study by Stanford University economists.”
Trump “blew the lid off COVID-19 protections” and held another potential superspreader rally that broke Miami-Dade’s coronavirus curfew.

Miami Herald: “Less than 24 hours before the dawn of Election Day, President Donald Trump touched down Sunday night in Miami-Dade County — the coronavirus epicenter of his must-win home state — and blew the lid off COVID-19 precautions.”
