On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Trump 2020 Strategic Communications Director Marc Lotter explains what he thinks is the real reason the Trump campaign receives so much criticism for holding rallies despite warnings about attendees without masks and the size of the crowds.
"The rallies are horrible for them or for multiple reasons. One, it dominates local news coverage, but two, it also mobilizes our volunteer base. It gets tens of thousands of people to sign up to go to these rallies, which gives us even more data and information that we can then turn around when it comes time to getting the vote out on Election Day. So there's a reason why they don't want these rallies. They don't want us having the energy, the momentum and the data to get our voters to the polls come Election Day."
