Governor Steve Sisolak is responding to President Donald Trump's massive rallies held in Nevada over the weekend.

Sisolak said he is not surprised that the president held large rallies, both in Northern and Southern Nevada, but disappointed. The governor reiterated that these are not his directives, but the directives he received from the White House.

When asked about repercussions against the Minden-Tahoe Airport, the site of the Northern Nevada rally, Sisolak said, "We left that up to the local jurisdiction, in terms of handling enforcement and handling the rules. I want to believe that wasn't a mistake. I want to believe that they understand the severity of this whole thing."

Sisolak said that seeing a coronavirus spike as a result of Saturday's rallies are inevitable. The governor went on to say that President Trump pulled "a stunt" by hosting several rallies in the Silver State.
