Democrats are sending a truck to Trump's Michigan rally to play audio of his coronavirus comments.

Ahead of President Trump’s rally in Michigan on Thursday night, Democrats are planning to use his own words to skewer him.

The Democratic National Committee is dispatching a mobile billboard truck to MBS International Airport in Freeland, Mich., where the rally will take place. The truck will play a brief audio clip of Mr. Trump speaking to the journalist Bob Woodward about the coronavirus: “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down.”

As his words ring out, the truck will display statistics showing the virus’s toll. The back of the truck will carry a blunt message: “Trump Lied. Americans Died.”

Democrats, including Joseph R. Biden Jr., have long attacked Mr. Trump over his handling of the virus. But the president’s comments to Mr. Woodward are giving the party a new and powerful way to raise the issue.

“While Trump will continue to use these rallies to lie to the American people,” said Lily Adams, a spokeswoman for the D.N.C., “we’re using his own words to remind Michigan voters that when Americans needed the facts during this pandemic, Donald Trump lied to them, costing an untold number of lives and causing economic devastation.”

4. I was just talking about this with my mother this morning

hoping someone would show up to a rally parking lot to play Dump's words to the ignorant maskholes about how deadly the virus is.
