Trump marketing campaign cancels Alabama rally as coronavirus scenarios surge

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden plans Tuesday to blister President Donald Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic as he tries to demonstrate to voters how he'd handle the public health and economic crisis if he were in the White House.

The campaign is however reeling from a reasonably improperly-attended rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma before this thirty day period which was supposed to serve as a enormous comeback party for Trump who experienced to cancel three months worthy of of campaign events amid the pandemic.

Amid a surge in USA circumstances, notably within the south and west, infectious illness professional Anthony Fauci instructed Congress earlier Tuesday that issues have been "going in the wrong direction", and that "clearly we are not in total control right now".

And, in prepared remarks, Mr Biden accused Mr Trump of "waving the white flag" as coronavirus cases surged nationwide and the death toll surpasses 125,000.

The Trump group reported having over $295 million in cash on hand, a closely watched figure representing what they could spend.

Biden, who waged his successful primary battle against a historically large field of Democrats on a shoestring budget, is trying erase a fundraising gap ahead of his November 3 election with Trump.

"Clearly we are not in control right now", Fauci testified, warning that not enough Americans are wearing masks or social distancing.

The former vice president's address comes as the country has recorded almost 2.7 million positive cases of COVID-19 and almost 130,000 deaths.

The second-quarter total is $111 million more than the first quarter of 2020, marking a "71 percent increase", the campaign said.

Biden was asked repeatedly about the allegation that Russian Federation placed bounties on US troops stationed in Afghanistan and that Trump was made aware of the situation in the spring of 2019. "I think masks are good", Trump told Fox Business, adding that he would wear a face covering if he were in a "tight situation" with other people.

Joe Biden responds to a question during the town hall said: "He (US President Donald Trump) just ended the H-1B visas the rest of this year, That will not be in my administration". He also disclosed that he has not been tested for COVID-19 yet.
