Lawmaker Criticizes Pence for Meeting Trump Campaign Staff without Keeping COVID-19 Restrictions

WASHINGTON — A U.S. lawmaker who represents northern Virginia suburbs has criticized Vice President Mike Pence for meeting with dozens of Trump campaign staff packed into an Arlington office without social distancing or masks.

Pence tweeted a photo of the gathering on Wednesday but subsequently deleted it. In the tweet, Pence said he wanted to thank the staff members for their hard work and to keep it up.

Democratic Rep. Don Beyer says the fact that Pence deleted the tweet “shows that he knows the behavior was wrong.”

Beyer said the vice president and the Trump campaign “are setting the worst possible example.”

The Trump-Pence campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
