Your Daily Roundup for September 14th
Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
Twin crises -- wildfires and COVID-19:
California, Oregon and Washington are under siege from two crises -- the devastating wildfires and the continued spread of COVID-19.
At least 24 have died from the fires with first responders bracing for the worst. President Trump will be visiting California today to assess the damage. The fires will serve as a reminder that climate change is a very real and very present threat.
Despite state and federal guidelines, the Trump campaign held a large indoor rally:
The Trump campaign defied Nevada guidelines as well as those of the federal government by holding an indoor rally at a manufacturing plant near Las Vegas. The state has limited gatherings to 50 people but the rally was attended by thousands, many of whom did not wear masks. This is the first rally the campaign has held indoors since the widely criticized Tulsa, Oklahoma event in June, which led to an outbreak in the state.
