Super Spreader Tour? Trump Reportedly Wants to Hold a Campaign Event in Pittsburgh on Monday

Donald Trump has never taken the coronavirus and the danger of the illness seriously. This is, amazingly, still true even though he had now contracted the virus and seems to be having trouble breathing. And not only has Trump contracted the illness, a number of his most important staffers have as well.

The lifeblood of Donald Trump’s political career has always been the live events. While so many Americans and some of the media are “really mean” to him, he can always count on the adulation of his staffers. So it should’t be a surprise that, despite still having COVID-19, Trump is hoping to hold a campaign event next week in Pennsylvania.

The report comes via the New York Times Maggie Haberman. She took to Twitter writing, “TRUMP campaign is exploring having him hold an event (not a rally) in Pittsburgh on Monday, per 3 ppl familiar with the discussions. They’re setting up possible travel plans for him all week, with later in the week seeming more solid.”

It’s not surprising that Trump would want to hit Pennsylvania first. The state is desperately important to his reelection chances and a number of recent polls show him getting blown out in the state. Earlier this week, Trump tweeted, “How does Biden lead in Pennsylvania Polls when he is against Fracking (JOBS!), 2nd Amendment and Religion? Fake Polls. I will win Pennsylvania!”
