The U.S. recorded another 46,000 cases of coronavirus Thursday, and nearly 850 deaths — raising the official U.S. death toll to 208,000. On Thursday, before the president announced he had tested positive for coronavirus, the Trump campaign said it was moving ahead with two rallies this weekend in Wisconsin, even though the White House Coronavirus Task Force has labeled Wisconsin a “red zone” with a high rate of community spread. Those plans are now in disarray, and Trump’s campaign has canceled plans for tonight’s rally in Orlando, Florida.
In New Hampshire, former South Carolina governor and Trump campaign surrogate Nikki Haley hosted an event Thursday for 99 Republican women running for office. Haley tweeted a photo of herself posing with the women, packed indoors, shoulder to shoulder, none of them wearing masks.
