Transcript for Trump campaign under fire for allegedly removing social distancing stickers
This morning, the trump campaign is facing questions about why it ordered thousands of social distancing warning stickers to be removed from seats at the Tulsa rally. Before the president's rally there. ABC's Rachel Scott is at the white house as the campaign cancels some events. Rachel, gorpg. Reporter: Whit, good morning. While those campaign events are on hold, a white house official tells me the vice president will still travel to Texas, Arizona and Florida to meet with the state's governors and their healthcare teams. Today he'll head to Dallas for a Sunday service, where wearing a mask is strongly encouraged but not required. This morning, vice president Mike pence is expected to address thousands at a Dallas church, hours after the county hit a record high in daily cases. So our question was, are we going to cancel it? And I think our people, I think America needs a shot in the arm. Reporter: First Baptist Dallas will open at 70% capacity, allowing up to 2200 people to fill this sanctuary inside. The vice president moving forward with plans to speak to the congregation after the trump campaign postponed his events in Florida and Arizona. Though the president has down played the risk of the virus. We did so well before the plague and we're doing well after the plague. It's going away. Reporter: Dozens of his own campaign staffers spent the week in quarantine after his rally in Tulsa. Eight tested positive for covid-19. And now this video obtained by the Washington post raising questions. The trump campaign asked why workers were appearing to remove stickers promoting social distancing? This one, do not sit here please. Confirming the post report, the campaign directed those stickers to be taken down. A campaign official says the rally was in full compliance with local requirements. Those attending entering the arena at their own risk. Signing a waiver agreeing not to sue the campaign if they get supporters had their temperature checked and handed a face mask, though wearing it was optional. Speaking to CBS news, the vice president defended the trumped a min straes's stance on masks. Why not ask people to wear masks? Well, we believe people should wear masks. Where social distancing is not possible, wherever it's indicated by either state or local authorities and, you know, the president has worn a mask. I've worn a mask on several occasions this week. And in a separate statement to "The Washington post," the trump campaign says they were not aware of any campaign staffers asking for those stickers to be taken down. Sources tell us that the campaign has set up a remote covid-19 testing location. Those staffers on the ground for that rally in Tulsa will have to receive a negative test before returning back to work tomorrow. Rachel, thank you so much.
