Trump's RNC Speech to Feature Audience of Thousands with No Masks or Distancing

Donald Trump will be accepting the Republican presidential nomination with a speech at the RNC tonight and the scene from the convention is pretty shocking.

The President of the United States will be speaking from the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday night (August 27) in Washington, D.C.

It’s already shocking that a political convention is being held at the White House as this has never been done before. What make this evening even more surprising is that the event is making it look like there is no pandemic happening right now.

CNN reports that 1,500 to 2,000 guests are expected to watch Trump‘s speech live on the South Lawn and chairs are “positioned within less than a foot of one another.” There are 1,500 seats and the rest of the crowd will have to stand.

It has been reported that it was not required for guests to be tested for coronavirus and it appears that very few people in the audience are wearing masks.

This week, the CDC even changed guidance to say that people who have been in proximity to someone who has tested positive for coronavirus no longer need to be tested. Many health experts have slammed this new guidance.
