President Trump accused the media and liberals of trying to “Covid shame” his campaign into canceling a planned rally, saying his critics didn’t express similar health concerns over massive protests against racial injustice.
The president tweeted that the “far-left” news media “had no Covid problem with the Rioters & Looters destroying Democrat run cities.” But he said the media is “trying to Covid Shame us on our big Rallies. Won’t work!”
Many news outlets have been reporting on health officials’ concerns about the coronavirus spreading in large, indoor gatherings such as Mr. Trump’s next rally, scheduled for Saturday at the BOK arena in Tulsa, Oklahoma. About 19,000 people are expected to attend.
But Mr. Trump and his supporters say the media didn’t raise the same concerns about massive street protests against police brutality, in which demonstrators were often packed together, often not wearing masks.
During a White House event Monday intended to shore up the president’s sagging support among seniors, Mr. Trump emphasized his administration’s efforts to protect older Americans from the coronavirus in settings such as nursing homes.
“We have to keep all of our seniors safe, this is a very perilous time,” the president said.
