The president’s reelection team reluctantly followed suit, with Trump saying Thursday that multiple events that were in the works are being postponed.
“We had about three of them in Nevada, actually. And we had four or five of them of them that we were thinking about,” Trump said at the White House.
The president’s campaign has suspended all rallies, events and fundraisers for at least the next week, according to officials. Trump was slated to fly west on Thursday night for events in Nevada and Colorado, a trip that was canceled after his Oval Office address to the nation on Wednesday night about the severity of the coronavirus outbreak.
