We now know that Trump had the coronavirus when he went to Minnesota and held a rally after the debate. The White House and Senate Republican Caucus rightly gets a lot of attention, but Donald Trump also caused COVID outbreaks in communities with his ruthless and irresponsible rallies.
Trump is itching to rally again in places like Florida and Pennsylvania, but his rallies are making people sick. The White House is still refusing to tell the American people when Trump's last coronavirus test took place.
Donald Trump could still be contagious now. The fact that its first event will be held in a White House so infected with COVID that journalists are unsafe to work there is not reassuring.
Trump rallies don't just bring a seated president seeking a second term. They also bring Trump's runmates COVID-19 with them.
