Just five days removed from his White House coronavirus quarantine, President Donald Trump held a large rally Saturday in Wisconsin, where he downplayed the pandemic in a state suffering from a record-high surge in COVID-19 cases. At the top of a meandering 93-minute speech, Trump criticized Gov. Tony Evers for holding Wisconsin back amid the pandemic — despite the fact Republicans already had successfully overturned several of the Democratic governor’s public health measures.
