Trump’s Massive Tulsa Rally Raises Alarms As COVID Increases | NowThis

Here’s the latest on President Trump’s Tulsa rally in Oklahoma and why experts are concerned about spread of COVID-19.

NowThis will stream Pres. Trump’s rally with live fact-checking on Saturday, 6/20 at 7pm central.

TRUMP SAYS VIRUS ‘GOES AWAY,’ FALSELY CLAIMS AIDS VACCINE EXISTS President Donald Trump said “if we stop testing right now we’d have very few cases” of coronavirus on Monday. The comment was part of a broader administration effort to play down the pandemic that experts worry is sending a dangerous message to the American public. During the same speech that Trump baselessly claimed the coronavirus will “go away,” he incorrectly stated that an AIDS vaccine exists — a statement many have already slammed. This comes as the Trump administration has been ordered to give tribes their coronavirus relief funds, which the Treasury Department was sitting on, and as Florida, Arizona and Texas report record surges in infections.

PENCE SAYS ALL STATES OPENING RESPONSIBLY. FAUCI DISAGREES. Vice President Mike Pence painted misleading portrait of the U.S. government’s response to the coronavirus and the current state of the crisis in an op-ed published in The Wall Street Journal. Pence, who leads the White House coronavirus task force, praised all 50 states for beginning to reopen in a “safe and responsible manner.” But Dr. Anthony Fauci said that isn’t the case. “There certainly were states that did not strictly follow the guidelines that we put out about opening America again,” Fauci told NPR. This comes as three states see record highs in COVID-19 cases after reopening. [HuffPost]
