after bragging about how well we are doing

Huffpost:

Vice President Mike Pence canceled campaign events in Florida and Arizona, as the number of COVID-19 cases in both states continues to smash records.

Pence backed out of the scheduled appearances on Saturday, just a day after claiming that the nation is “flattening the curve,” which is not true.

The U.S. reached a new record number of coronavirus cases — more than 42,000 — on Saturday. Florida had nearly 9,600 new cases, and Arizona tallied an additional 3,951 cases.

As of Friday, the U.S. seven-day average of new cases increased more than 41% compared with a week ago. 

Pence is skipping the appearances “out of an abundance of caution” due to the case spike in the states, according to the Trump campaign.

The scheduled events — which included a stop in Tucson, Arizona, and a bus tour with appearances in Sarasota and Lake Wales, Florida — were part of the campaign’s “Faith in America” tour, which targets evangelical voters.
