WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has turned an early Memorial Day remembrance of fallen U.S. service members into a quasi reelection campaign rally with bikers on the White House lawn. The Republican president lashed out at Democrats Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi for disagreeing with his handling of China during the coronavirus pandemic, calling them “sick.” Trump also noted his political support among bikers and urged them to vote on Nov. 3, saying “we don’t want to destroy our country.” The bikers have participated in the annual “Rolling Thunder” ride on Memorial Day in Washington. The event is now called “Rolling to Remember.” Bikers will ride in their communities this year.
