The Trump administration began focusing its attention on the election campaign last week, holding indoor events in Arizona and Oklahoma, two states with increasing cases, against the advice of public health officials.

The president praised the number of tests conducted in the country, but said at his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that he wanted fewer tests to be done, so the number of confirmed cases would be fewer. Trump and other officials later said their comments were joking.
