Trump administration declares coronavirus uncontrollable, attacks press for covering new outbreaks.

President Donald Trump held a campaign rally on Saturday in Waukesha, Wisconsin, which is 40 miles away from Kenosha, Wisconsin; Kenosha is where an unarmed Black man named Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by a police officer in August, and where a Trump supporter named Kyle Rittenhouse has been charged with murder for shooting two people to death at a September protest. Trump made his Wisconsin appearance in front of a “Thin Blue Line” version of the American flag, an image that has been adopted by police officers and right-wing members of the general public as a response to Black Lives Matter protests; the flag was also flown at the 2017 Charlottesville, Virginia, rally during which a white supremacist intentionally ran over and killed a counterprotester with his car.
