The Trump campaign defended its plans to hold an indoor rally in Nevada on Sunday amid criticism from city officials and others on social media.
The president is set to appear Sunday in Henderson, Nev., at a facility owned by Xtreme Manufacturing for an event that is expected to violate the city’s rules against indoor gatherings of more than 50 people. City officials have already warned the company, according to CNN, that the event could result in a fine of $500 or a suspension of the business license.
“The City of Henderson has issued a compliance letter and verbal warning to the event organizer that the event as planned would be in direct violation of the governor’s COVID-19 emergency directives. Specifically, gatherings of more than 50 people in a private or public setting is prohibited,” a city official told CNN.
