“This is the most unusual campaign, I think, in modern history,” Biden said. “I’m gonna follow the doc’s orders, not just for me, but for the country.”
“That means that I am not going to be holding rallies,” Biden continued.

This move puts Biden in contrast with his general election opponent, President Donald Trump. The president has resumed some campaign activities, including a recent rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. However, the Trump campaign announced Tuesday that they were cancelling an upcoming rally with Republican Alabama Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville, citing coronavirus concerns.
Biden has strongly criticized the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic, and has ripped the president for not wearing a mask during public events. The former vice president said earlier in June that he would issue an executive order requiring all Americans to wear masks in public, if he were president.
