Trump searching for new place to hold Republican convention

Trump searching for new place to hold Republican convention”

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday the Republicans will move this year's national convention from the southeastern state of North Carolina because the governor is refusing to remove restrictions on large events aimed at preventing the spread of the coronavirus.

The convention will nominate Trump to seek a second term in the November 3 election.

"We are now forced to seek another State to host the 2020 Republican National Convention", Trump said.

After President Trump said the RNC would pick a new state on Tuesday night, Cooper said the news was "unfortunate".

That prompted the RNC to say they would begin visiting potential alternative sites in the largely Republican-led states that have offered to host the quadrennial gathering instead.

In a letter to Republican National Committee leaders Tuesday, Gov. Cooper, once again, advised the party to plan a smaller event with fewer people, social distancing and face coverings.

Roy Cooper speaks to supporters in Raleigh, N.C., March 3, 2020. "So the likelihood of it being in Charlotte depends upon the RNC's willingness to discuss with us a scaled-down convention".

North Carolina is now in phase two of its reopening plans, but Cooper and other state officials said the state isn't yet ready for phase three. "Protecting public health and safety during this pandemic is a priority".

The party was also considering a split convention, with the votes on platform and rules taking place in Charlotte and the speeches and pageantry taking place in another city, such as Jacksonville, Florida, or Las Vegas, said a source familiar with the discussions. Cooper had until Wednesday to decide whether to lift all social distancing restrictions imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic for the GOP to hold its conclave August 24-27 to nominate Trump as its 2020 presidential candidate. So, we need to know what those requirements are going to be, ' he said.

In a letter to Cooper last week, McDaniel asked him to approve a series of safety protocols and logistical measures that Republicans agreed to, including health questionnaires and thermal scans for fever.

She later told former state Governor Pat McCrory on his radio show that it seemed Cooper was stalling. "We are hoping to make it work but we are not going to wait indefinitely".

Trump made the announcement on Twitter hours after Governor Roy Cooper, a Democrat, rejected Republican demands for a full-fledged presidential nominating convention in Charlotte, telling organizers that planning for a scaled-down event was "a necessity" due to the coronavirus.

During the call, when Mr Trump "insisted on a full convention arena with no face coverings and no social distancing the governor expressed concerns and suggested a scaled back event with fewer attendees", Cooper spokeswoman Sadie Weiner wrote in an email.
