Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will TRIPLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go three times as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

Nevada City Fines Venue That Hosted Trump Rally Which Violated State’s Coronavirus Restrictions

HeadlineSep 15, 2020

The city of Henderson, Nevada, has issued a $3,000 fine to the venue that hosted a large indoor Trump rally over the weekend for violating Nevada’s COVID-19 guidelines. Thousands attended the event. Most did not wear masks. A local reporter asked Trump if he was concerned about getting infected.

Debra Saunders: “Aren’t you concerned about getting COVID, though, in an enclosed room?”

President Donald Trump: “No, I’m not concerned.”

Debra Saunders: “What about people here?”

President Donald Trump: “I’m more concerned about how close you are, to be honest.”

Debra Saunders: “Sorry about that.”

President Donald Trump: “Because you know why? I’m on a stage. It’s very far away. And so I’m not at all concerned.”
