President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign said Wednesday that the president would still travel to Nevada, despite venues in the state canceling his events.
The campaign had scheduled a rally on Saturday this weekend at a hanger at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport but it was canceled by the airport authority, citing statewide coronavirus restrictions. A venue for a Sunday rally at the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas was also canceled.
Nevada requires mandatory face coverings and a limitation on public and private gatherings to no more than 50 people.
Trump’s Nevada campaign co-chair Adam Laxalt accused Democrats of canceling the events as part of political retribution.
Outrageous! @realDonaldTrump rally venues in NV canceled. Welcome to Sisolak’s Nevada – home of partisan political retribution. This is unprecedented – to cancel an incumbent President’s campaign stop inside 60 days of a major contested election in a swing state. This isn’t over!
