Trump just made a decision to protect the health of the Republican Party.
According to Fox News, President Donald Trump has just confirmed that the GOP convention in Jacksonville, Florida is now canceled. Trump decided to postpone the event due to growing Coronavirus concerns in the state. Trump said, “It’s just not the right time.”
Trump Cancels Jacksonville Convention
In a recent press briefing at the White House, President Trump told reporters that the event in Florida was canceled because the timing wasn’t right:
“The timing for this event is not right, it’s just not right. To have a big convention, it’s just not the right time.”
Trump added that the decision was made because he wants to keep America safe amid the pandemic:
“There is nothing more important in our country than keeping our people safe.”
GOP Praises Trump’s Decision
A lot of Republican leaders were happy with Trump’s decision. Many of them took to social media to praise the cancellation.
Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said she supported the president’s announcement, calling it a “difficult decision.”
We support this difficult decision and thank Governor DeSantis, Mayor Curry, and the people of Jacksonville for their hospitality.
We look forward to @realDonaldTrump accepting the nomination and addressing the American people on his vision for the next four years!
