Speaking at a rally in Carson City, Nevada, Trump imitated the former vice president, saying he would “listen to the scientists.”

“If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression,” Trump said. “We’re like a rocket ship.”

He then attacked the Democratic governors of several states who have put in place measures to stop a likely second wave of Covid-19.

“Get the places open, let’s go,” he said.
