On Monday, President Donald Trump announced that he will accept the Republican presidential nomination in North Carolina after months of going back and forth of where to officially hold the Republican National Convention.
The president canceled his plans to carry out the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville, Florida a day before his announcement due to restrictions of avoiding mass gatherings during the Coronavirus epidemic in a state where there is an extreme uprising in COVID-19 cases.
“I’ll be in North Carolina, and that’s a very big deal because we have a lot of the delegates there and that will be a nomination process. That’s essentially where the nomination is, where it’s formalized, and I’m really honored to do it in North Carolina,” President Trump stated at a White House press conference.
President Trump noted that he will provide more details about the Republican National Convention by the end of next week. August 24th is the scheduled first day of the event however, the major prime-time events such as the president’s acceptance speech will most likely proceed online.
“We’re going to do some things with tele-rallies and online the week that we’re discussing, which would be really good. I think we’re going to do it well,” President Trump said.
…who worked around the clock to plan this historic 5-star event, and we look forward to formally re-nominating President Trump for four more years of historic results.
