President Donald Trump‘s reelection campaign is launching “Operation MAGA,” an effort to keep the GOP presidential bid going while Trump continues treatment for COVID-19.
The effort includes top Trump surrogates — such as Vice President Mike Pence, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump — ramping up in-person campaign appearances just days after a potential super-spreader event at the White House led to several positive COVID-19 tests among top officials.
Trump’s team will also host multiple virtual events ahead of Wednesday’s vice presidential debate between Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.
“Operation MAGA will fire up the entire MAGA universe to keep President Trump’s campaign at full speed until our Commander-in-Chief returns to the campaign trail,” said Bill Stepien, Trump’s campaign manager.
“Vice President Mike Pence, the First Family, our coalitions, and our grassroots supporters will be out in full force to show the real enthusiasm behind the President’s re-election and to show we’re working as hard as he always does. We also encourage all of the President’s supporters to pick up the banner themselves by volunteering in our grassroots Army for Trump, flying their Trump flags, putting out more yard signs, and wearing their MAGA gear proudly.”
