Even as Coronavirus cases in the United States crossed 1 million, President Donald Trump has said that he will resume travelling for 'wild rallies' eyeing the upcoming Presidential elections. So far, Covid-19 has claimed 61,656 lives in the country, exceeding the official figures of Americans who died in the Vietnam war. However, Trump was quick to clarify that his Arizona trip is focused on the economic recovery effort and is not a campaign rally.

Highlighting that things would look different in the world infected by Coronavirus, "Hopefully in the not too distant future we'll have some massive rallies and people will be sitting next to each other," he said."I can't imagine a rally where you have every fourth seat full. That wouldn't look too good. I hope that we''re going to be able to do some good old-fashioned 25,000 person rallies where everyone''s going wild because they love our country."
