Trump Says GOP ‘Forced’ to Move Republican National Convention out of North Carolina

After pushing for the North Carolina governor to allow the Republican National Convention to continue in the state at full capacity, President Donald Trump is saying the Republican Party is being “forced” to move the convention elsewhere.

In a tweet on Tuesday night, the president wrote, “Had long planned to have the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, a place I love.”

He went on to suggest North Caroline Gov. Roy Cooper (D) refuses “to guarantee that we can have use of the Spectrum Arena.”

“Would have showcased beautiful North Carolina to the World, and brought in hundreds of millions of dollars, and jobs, for the State,” Trump tweeted, before adding, “Because of [Gov. Roy Cooper], we are now forced to seek another State to host the 2020 Republican National Convention.”

Trump previously threatened to move the convention elsewhere if the state did not allow the convention to proceed without coronavirus restrictions.

Trump’s remarks followed Cooper’s on Tuesday where the governor wrote a letter to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, as IJR reported.

“I am in receipt of your letter of May 30, 2020, demanding a ‘full convention’ which includes ‘19,000 delegates, alternative delegates, staff, volunteers, elected officials and guests inside the Spectrum Center,'” Cooper wrote, adding, “You also require ‘full hotels and restaurants and bars at capacity.’ In my conversations with you and President Trump Friday night, you want us to guarantee a full arena.”

Cooper later added, “Neither public officials nor I will risk the health and safety of North Carolinians by providing the guarantee you seek.”

The North Carolina governor’s letter follows McDaniel’s letter to him listing out coronavirus safety protocols for his consideration.

McDaniel has indicated that other states have offered to host the convention. According to Politico, Republicans are exploring Nashville, Tenn., among other places, as a potential site for the upcoming convention scheduled for August 25 to August 27.

  2. In the totally evil and toxic world of Inferior to Everyone, Caucasian trash American bigotry, misogyny, prejudice, racism, and xenophobia trumpuke is merely the most glaring example of them.

    The mindset and belief system which upholds them is perniciously widespread, ingrained in the DNA, and virtually impervious to all remedy for those who hold them

    These expressions are seen as logical and good by the 10s of 1,000,000s of fear ridden and hate driven monsters who hold and express them with not only no regard to their consequence but also with a firm desire that the consequence will be silencing and destroying their targets.
