Reporters on the scene at Trump’s event in Phoenix, Arizona, are reporting that the only people in attendance wearing a mask are the reporters who are covering the President.

No social distancing. And the only masks I am seeing are being worn by the White House travel pool pic.twitter.com/WYBRjAiDJp

Trump’s Make Corona Great Again tour is off to an infectious start.
The problem of people not following guidelines by social distancing and wearing masks has only served to worsen the spread of coronavirus in the state.
There is zero chance that Trump is ever going to do the right thing and wear a mask while promoting social distancing. It doesn’t matter to him that his behavior has caused a virus outbreak within his own presidential campaign. Trump wants to pretend like the coronavirus is gone. He is even considering ending the coronavirus emergency declaration.
Donald Trump and his supporters are spreading the virus through their refusal to follow basic instructions. Trump politicized public health and safety, and the result is an epidemic that is being fueled by the President and his death cult.
