Trump

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- President Donald Trump will be visiting the Silver State in September, according to his campaign. 

Trump will be in Reno on Saturday, September 12 and in Las Vegas on Sunday, September 13. 

The campaign rally in Reno will be called the "Great American Comeback Event" at 4:30 p.m. at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Doors for guests open at 1:30 p.m.

On Sunday, Trump will hold an event in Las Vegas by the same title at 7 p.m. at Cirrus Aviation at 5050 Koval Lane, near McCarran International Airport. Doors open for that event at 4 p.m.

Details of the events were not yet released. It was unclear how the campaign events would be held given Gov. Steve Sisolak's 50-person limit due to the pandemic. 

Early in September, it was announced the Ahern Hotel and Convention Center was assessed for a $10,930 penalty, according to a state Occupational Safety and Health Administration report.

The hotel hosted a faith-based Trump rally and a beauty pageant, and was battling the governor’s office and city officials over coronavirus crowd limits.

Hotel owner Don Ahern had been fined $250 after Las Vegas police and city employees arrived minutes before the Aug. 6 “Evangelicals for Trump” rally at the former Lucky Dragon casino-hotel just off Las Vegas Boulevard.

The Nevada Democratic Party on Tuesday said Trump is trying to "distract from his failed pandemic response and cratering economy." Read their full statement below:

Instead of offering Nevadans real leadership and economic relief, Donald Trump is parachuting into our state in a blatant attempt to distract from his failed pandemic response and cratering economy. In the midst of a global pandemic, Trump is endangering Nevadans’ health and safety with in-person rallies in a desperate bid to spin his ineffective management of the coronavirus crisis and dangerous economic policies, which have left working families behind at every turn.

This isn’t the first time Trump has hurt Nevadans with a political stunt. Last month, his campaign launched a baseless lawsuit attempting to block legislation passed by Nevada Democrats that ensures no Nevadan is forced to choose between their health and their right to vote during this deadly pandemic. 

This weekend, Trump will offer Nevadans more empty rhetoric. But Nevada Democrats will hold Trump accountable for his broken promises this weekend and every day until we kick Donald Trump out of office this November.

I hope for the safety of my fellow Americans that the President takes social distancing seriously and works to unite us rather than divide.

Nevermore

Like the thousands of visitors that visited us this weekend. Like #44, who helped create BLM and fundamentally changed this country for the worst. But don't get me started. If social distancing works then why wear masks? Maybe because people can't figure out 6ft of distance? Or the distancing makes no difference to the virus. The rules seem to change every week.

Human existence does not fit into to the nice finite categories that mathematicians and scientists try to assign upon it. 6 feet is not a magical number it depend on the ventilation of space as a general rule of thumb 6 ft is a good number to start off with and wear a mask. The mask does not protect you, but helps protect others from you by reducing the number particulates in the air. Also the BLM came out of many social justice movements that can trace their origins back to the black power movement of the late 1960s early 70s, and I think you are giving Obama too much credit. He was a bumbling technocrat prone to flowery speeches that barely got anything accomplished.

Nevermore

If the mask doesn't protect me, then how does it protect everyone else? Everybody else's particles are in the air also.

Nobody could touch #44 or else we would be called out as a racist. And ,God forbid, there is nothing worst according to the ever truthful media. Fundamentally changing the United States into a racist nation. #44 knew what he was doing.

I remember the Black Panthers in the late 60's. A for front for BLM. I don't think any us want to oppress any group of people. But I don't want anyone telling me that their way of thinking is the right way only.

This way of thinking will not end well.

Nevermore

I hope thousands of people show up to see President Trump. A lot of us don't have the liberal syndrome.
