    US President Donald Trump's campaign played the ominous hit “In the Air Tonight” during a rally this week in Iowa, which has seen more than 103,000 COVID-19 cases.

    During his Wednesday Des Moines, Iowa, rally, Trump’s campaign pumped Phil Collins’ "In the Air Tonight" through speakers for attendees. It seemed to be in breathtakingly poor taste, considering the grim fact that Iowa has the fourth-highest COVID-19 infection rate in the US, with 61 senior-care facilities reporting outbreaks and the state seeing 1,180 new cases on Wednesday alone. More than 1,500 people have died in Iowa due to the coronavirus, according to state government data.

    Additionally, Minnesota officials have tied at least 16 COVID-19 cases to Trump's September 18 outdoor rally at an airport in Bemidji. Four of those infections were reported by protesters at the event, according to Kris Ehresmann, Minnesota’s infectious disease director.
