Hogan Gidley also said, "The American people have the right under the First Amendment to peaceably assemble, too."

Trump campaign spokesperson Hogan Gidley said Wednesday that he’s not worried about holding a campaign rally in Wisconsin, which has emerged as a COVID hotspot, because Vice President Mike Pence has access to the best doctors.

  • CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Gidley: “Hospitals in Wisconsin are near capacity. Does that give you any pause or the vice president any pause about going there and holding a big rally?
  • Gidley responded: “No, it doesn't. The vice president has the best doctors in the world around him, they've obviously contact-traced and have come to the conclusion it's fine for him to be out on the campaign trail.”
  • Gidley added: "The American people have the right under the First Amendment to peaceably assemble, too.”
  • Gidley's answer showcases how little concern the Trump campaign appears to have for Americans as President Trump and others continue to hold massive rallies and other events across the country — often with little to no social distancing and few face masks.
  • CNN’s Chris Cillizza noted that “In the last two weeks, according to data from The New York Times, Covid-19 cases have surged 46% in Wisconsin, deaths from the virus are up 113% and hospitalizations are up 41%.”
