Fox News covered the rally and contributed with these details:
President Trump came out swinging Saturday evening at a rally in Nevada.
“The bottom line is, when we win, America wins,” the president told a crowd of supporters in Minden, about 50 miles south of Reno, as part of a push to flip Nevada red this November.
Trump immediately called Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak a “political hack” after sparring with the Democrat over a rally originally scheduled for an airport hangar in Reno earlier this week, which the Trump 2020 Campaign was forced to cancel because of the governor’s 50-person limit on outdoor gatherings amid the coronavirus.
The rally was moved to an airport hangar in Minden, near Lake Tahoe.
State Republicans blamed the governor for trying to hurt Trump’s reelection chances, but the Reno rally was canceled by airport officials.
#BREAKING: President Trump accuses Nevada Gov. Sisolak of trying to stop rally, claims it shows he is not trustworthy on election integrity: "How would you trust a guy that fought that we aren't here, that we can't have all these thousands of people… He can rig the election!" pic.twitter.com/LTcDeL5dnt

The Star Tribune had these details to add:
Kicking off a Western swing, President Donald Trump barreled into Nevada on Saturday looking to expand his paths to victory while unleashing a torrent of unsubstantiated claims that Democrats were trying to steal the election.
Trump defied local authorities by holding a rally in tiny Minden after his initial plan to hold one in Reno was stopped out of concern it would have violated coronavirus health guidelines. Unleashing 90-plus minutes of grievances and attacks, Trump claimed the state’s Democratic governor tried to block him and repeated his false claim that mail-in ballots would taint the election result.
“This is the guy we are entrusting with millions of ballots, unsolicited ballots, and we’re supposed to win these states. Who the hell is going to trust him?” Trump said of Gov. Steve Sisolak. “The only way the Democrats can win the election is if they rig it.
Trump lost Nevada in 2016 but it looks like Nevada will be red this November.
