Donald Trump Rallies Canceled In Nevada — His Campaign Says Trip Is Still On

Two rallies scheduled by Donald Trump’s campaign will not take place this week. The events would have violated state mandates limiting gatherings to 50 people or fewer. The campaign has complained that this is an attempt by Democrats to suppress Trump’s message, and announced that the president will still travel to the state — where he also has a fundraiser scheduled on Sunday.

HuffPost reporter S.V. Dáte shared Wednesday afternoon that the Trump campaign had released a statement on Nevada events. In this, the president’s campaign asserted, “Democrats are trying to keep President Trump from speaking to voters because they know the enthusiasm behind his re-election campaign cannot be matched by Joe Biden…President Trump will be traveling to Nevada on the dates planned.”

According to CNN, two rallies in Nevada, both at airports, like many of Trump’s recent events, have since been officially canceled.

In fact, one of the events, at the McCarran International Airport, was never actually approved, a spokesperson said, though the president’s campaign had been advertising it.

Governor Steve Sisolak tweeted to say that his office had not had any involvement in the events, and to remind that the state is following guidelines issued by the White House, limiting gatherings based on their current level of outbreak.

According to Bloomberg, Trump has a major fundraiser scheduled for Las Vegas on Sunday.

One person familiar said couples would be asked for $150,000 to attend a roundtable with Trump at the event, and $50,000 for a photo with him.

The timing for this fundraiser seems vital, after reports that the campaign blew through $800 million — that’s an 8 and 8 zeroes — under Brad Parscale’s operation.
