President Donald Trump will start campaign rallies some time in the next two weeks after a three-month break due to the CCP virus pandemic, the Trump campaign confirmed on Monday.
“Americans are ready to get back to action and so is President Trump. The great American comeback is real and the rallies will be tremendous,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement on Monday. Parscale asserted that crowds at Trump rallies will far surpass those of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Trumps campaign advisers are still figuring out details, such as where the rallies will take place and what safety measures to require of attendees amid the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic. Parscale will provide Trump with a number of venue options within the next week.
News of Trumps plan to restart campaign rallies comes as the World Health Organization on Monday noted that the spread of the CCP virus by patients who do not have symptoms is “very rare.”
Trump has not held a campaign rally since March 2 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The CCP virus prompted the majority of U.S. states that month to implement lockdowns and stay-at-home orders. However, Trump has shown his eagerness to reopen the nation for business, and he has visited certain states in recent weeks.
The Trump administration in mid-April unveiled a three-phase set of guidelines titled “Opening Up America Again” intended for state and local officials to refer to in “reopening their economies, getting people back to work, and continuing to protect American lives.”
The guidelines sought to help ease restrictions in areas of the country where the transmission rate of the CCP virus is low while maintaining the restrictions in areas of higher rates of transmission.
Prior to the CCP virus pandemic, Trump rallies traditionally see tens of thousands of people in arenas or outdoor amphitheaters.
