President Donald Trump’s campaign and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis tossed MAGA hats to a mostly maskless rally in Pensacola, Florida, reports CNN journalist Jim Acosta (MORE VIDEO BELOW).
The Tampa Bay Times noted there were 5,558 new COVID-19 cases in Florida on Oct. 22, bringing the total number to 768,091.
Johns Hopkins University of Medicine reports there were 69,359 new coronavirus cases and 781 new deaths in the U.S. on Oct. 23.
Despite the increases of cases and deaths, Trump told the crowd that the U.S. is “rounding the turn” of the COVID-19 pandemic.
