Trump rallies Wisconsin faithful; ignores soaring COVID-19 numbers

JANESVILLE – President Donald Trump on Saturday defied guidance from health officials to rally supporters, contending he saved nearby Kenosha from looting and arson this summer, and proved with his own recovery that his response to COVID-19 is working.
