Fauci Doesn't Like a GOP or Democratic Convention

Fauci Doesn't Like a GOP or Democratic Convention”

Cohen wrote that North Carolina must plan for several different scenarios given the "rapidly" evolving coronavirus situation in the Tar Heel State.

The RNC is now set to take place in North Carolina, August 24 - 27, but on Monday the president threatened to pull the event from the state if the governor doesn't sign off on allowing full-capacity gatherings in August.

Other states, like Georgia, have tweeted saying they would love to host the National Republican Convention. Hopefully, we will see that diminution. "We need to be able to move forward in a concrete way".

He said officials expect to continue discussions with GOP leaders in the coming days.

"It is OK for political conventions to be political but pandemic response can not be", he said. "Now, if he can't do it, if he feels that he's not going to do it, all he has to do is tell us and then we'll have to pick another location", the president said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, an infectious disease expert on the White House coronavirus task force, said the Republican and Democratic nominating conventions could go on as planned this August if there's a dramatic downturn in the number of cases.

Trump lashed out at North Carolina over the weekend after Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, said science would dictate how many people could attend the convention, which is scheduled to take place in Charlotte in late August.

"He continued: "[Planners] must be immediately given an answer by the Governor as to whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied. If not, we will be reluctantly forced to find with all the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site. "This is not something I want to do", Trump wrote over a series of tweets Monday morning.

Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., who is up for re-election amid allegations of insider trading, said she "totally" agreed with Kemp. But she said she hopes that issues can be resolved so the event can go forward in North Carolina.

"We've let the folks at the White House know that we want to work with them, and we think that would be a good thing to do", DeSantis said.

RNC organizers didn't respond to a follow-up request for comment from Newsweek Tuesday.

Mr. Cooper has begun reopening North Carolina businesses and recreational activities that were shut down March 27 to slow the spread of COVID-19.

"Like North Carolina, the city of Atlanta is following a phased, data-driven approach to reopening".

Trump's daughter-in-law and senior adviser to his 2020 reelection campaign, Lara Lee Trump, is a North Carolina native.

North Carolina has had over 24,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and almost 800 deaths.

"We have a governor who doesn't want to open up the state", Trump said of Cooper, suggesting his hesitance was the result of political differences.

"There's a lot of states calling the president right now saying, 'Hey why don't you bring that revenue to our state, '" McDaniel said on Fox News.

Meanwhile governors in Florida and Georgia each offered up their own states in tweets Tuesday to host the convention despite contractual obligations two years in the making for the event to be held in North Carolina. "By the time we get to the end of August - though we are slower than other places in reopening and our governor is more risk-averse - we are practically going to be in a place where we can host [the convention] close to normal". "We hope you will consider the Peach State, ⁦‪@realDonaldTrump⁩!"

Mr. Kemp delivered a similar message on Twitter. "And we will continue to be in contact with local, state, and federal health officials as we monitor this fluid situation", he said.
