U.S. health officials say public gatherings aid the spread of the coronavirus and have encouraged canceling large events.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced on Tuesday that after consulting with state health officials they would cancel planned political rallies.
From a March 12 media availability at the White House:
DONALD TRUMP: Well, I think the Democrats won't be having rallies. But nobody showed up to their rallies anyways, so what difference does it make? You know, I'll be – my rallies are very big. They're very big rallies.
