Daily Update- December 1, 2020: Trump Tweet, Assembly Committees

Today, President Trump agreed in a tweet that he agrees with a false claim that the alternate care site at Renown Hospital in Reno is “fake”. Governor Sisolak issued the following statement:

“For nearly nine months, the State of Nevada has not only had to battle this pandemic, we have had to fight the President’s nonstop attempts to politicize a virus that has led to over 260,000 American deaths.  

His consistent misleading rhetoric on COVID-19 is dangerous and reckless, and today’s implication that Renown’s alternate care site is a “fake hospital” is among the worst examples we’ve seen. It is unconscionable for him to continue to spread lies and sow distrust at a time when all Americans should be united during this historic public health crisis. Enough is enough.”
