Trump Rallies Thousands of Maskless Supporters at Michigan Campaign Event

HeadlineSep 11, 2020

President Trump campaigned outside Saginaw, Michigan, Thursday, where he spoke for 90 minutes to an overwhelmingly white crowd of several thousand supporters, who packed shoulder to shoulder into an airport hangar, with Air Force One as a backdrop. Red hats vastly outnumbered face masks at Trump’s rally — flouting Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s public health orders. Trump also wore no mask. He attacked Joe Biden as a “globalist sellout.”

President Donald Trump: “If Biden wins, China wins. If Biden wins, the mob wins. If Biden wins, the rioters, anarchists, arsonists and flag burners win.”
