President Donald Trump held an indoor campaign rally in Nevada despite public health professionals’ warnings against large indoor gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
People in the Nevada crowd were seated close together and many did not wear masks.
Nevada’s Democratic governor, Steve Sisolak, fired off a series of tweets describing the large, indoor gathering as high risk and calling Trump’s decision to hold it “reckless and selfish.”
“The President appears to have forgotten that this country is still in the middle of a global pandemic,” Sisolak tweeted.
Coronavirus has killed more than 194,000 people in the United States.
