US President Donald Trump held a rally in Carson City, Nevada on Sunday, on the latest stop of his campaign trail in the run up to November's Presidential election. The rally drew thousands of supporters who sat elbow to elbow, cheering Trump and booing his Democrat rival Joe Biden and the press.  

The vast majority wore no masks to guard against the coronavirus. The president warned that a Biden election would lead to further lockdowns and at one point appeared to mock Biden for saying he would listen to scientists.

Trump also told his supporters that he was optimistic about making a "good deal" with Iran if he were re-elected in the November 3 election. In 2018, Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from a nuclear deal with Iran and reimposed sanctions on the nation.
