Donald Trump's rallies ahead of US presidential elections are becoming known for flouting Covid-19 protocol. The September 12 campaign rally at Minden, Nevada, reportedly paid no heed to social distancing measures and only a few people were seen wearing face masks. The president tweeted some videos and images showing a massive crowd that maintained no social distancing. Trump tweeted, "ON MY WAY — SEE YOU SOON!" Most of the supporters in the rally were wearing red MAGA caps and T-shirts and were not wearing masks as noticed from the nearly one-minute video he posted. He also posted a picture of the crowd that had gathered with the caption, "Just landed, see you soon Minden, Nevada. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"



 



 

CNN reported that some Trump supporters who were excited to join the rally to hear the president speak felt it is safe and rejected the idea of wearing masks. Trump's recent campaign events have violated state mandates put in place to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Earlier, Trump's North Carolina rally in September violated Democratic Governor Roy Cooper's mandate that outdoor gatherings be limited to 50 people, as reported by CNN. Furthermore, the site reported that POTUS and most of his gathered supporters also did not wear masks despite a statewide mask mandate.

Even the Michigan rally in September pulled a massive and tightly-packed crowd of supporters, many of whom were seen without masks, as reported by Radio.Com. After such large crowds gather at Trump's rallies flouting pandemic protocol, director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr Francis Collins, had shown his disappointment and concern. "As a scientist, I'm pretty puzzled and rather disheartened," Collins said as reported by USA Today on September 11.

As soon as people on the internet saw images of Trump’s Nevada rally, they lashed at POTUS, calling the rally a superspreader. Some ridiculed him and said that maybe Covid loves Trump. However, some showed support for Trump. "A revival of patriotism. Thank you so much, Mr. President." One user mocked his rally, "Just landed to my super spreader Covid rally in Nevada."



 



 

Correspondent Kelly O' Donnell wrote about the callousness. "Scenes from Nevada Trump open-air rally still to begin. State COVID restrictions limit gatherings to 50 but disregarded here." A user slammed Trump’s supporters as COVIDIOTS, "Trump supporters in Nevada doing their part to get to 400,000 COVID-related American deaths by year-end!” A user simply tweeted, "Coronavirus likes this." 



 



 

 



 

Another wrote, "Another rally and more people without masks, social distancing, or caring in Nevada. Personally, I wish god would replace all the dead (191,000) from COVID-19, (yes the ones trump killed) with the lives of every single rally goer regardless of age. Sounds harsh!" A user concurred, "Trump cult now on a move at Nevada... no one is wearing a mask! Or almost no one. COVID loves Trump!"
