Trump Abruptly Cancels Republican Convention in Jacksonville: ‘It’s Not the Right Time’

Bowing to threats posed by the coronavirus, President Trump reversed course on Thursday and canceled the portion of the Republican National Convention to be held in Jacksonville, Fla., just weeks after he moved the event from North Carolina because state officials wanted the party to take health precautions there.

The surprise announcement threw one of the tent-pole moments of Mr. Trump’s re-election effort into limbo, with the president describing in vague terms how the Republicans would hold his renomination in North Carolina and do “other things with tele-rallies and online.” It was an ill-defined sketch of an August week that Mr. Trump once envisioned drawing huge crowds and energizing his struggling bid for a second term.

While Mr. Trump has spent weeks urging Florida and other states to reopen their economies and return to life as normal, virus cases have surged in Jacksonville and across the region. The president had insisted on moving ahead with the event until Thursday, talking up the big party that Republicans would hold in Jacksonville even with the dangers of large gatherings and some G.O.P. leaders saying they would not attend.

Trump understands that in-person rallies and events will draw smaller-than-normal crowds and that the media will use that against him. He is having great success moving events online. His Tulsa rally drew 4 million viewers. His recent online zoom fundraiser had 300,000 people log on and donate $20 million.

Biden (the poll leader :rofl:) only had 650 viewers for one of his rare online events.

Exactly, why go to a rally in person when you might have to kill a Biden supporter for being stupid? Better to sit at home and watch. Much better for my family so that I do not have to fight a case.

Because he is a small, self-absorbed man who worries about his crowd size more than he cares about NOT DOING SUPER SPREADER EVENTS in the middle of a raging pandemic.

Trump can’t catch a break; if he has the convention he’s exposing people to the Chinese virus. If he shuts down it’s because the crowds will be Joe Biden size: small

Trump already proved that he doesn't care about his political rallies spreading the virus. The only thing he was upset with last time was not filling up the stadium with maskless, shouting people.

Thankfully, Biden doesn't have to worry about crowd size...at rallies, online, or election day. :D

I understand how it might appear this way to a small minded, bitter ideologue. In fact that he is cancelling the i person event proves just the opposite of your assertion.

I swear -- you're like that one gnat at a picnic no one can swat.

Not holding political rallies is "the new normal".  So is rioting.  What's your point?  As Natural Selection noted, PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump's online viewership pummels the scat out of Biden's.  Trump canceled the convention because of fake numbers.  This is not a victory for the Democrats and Never-Trumpers.  This is another reason to vote for Trump so we can put and end to this asininity.

 

Question for you, Cap'nD.  What's it like to wake up every morning asking yourself "How can I show people that I'm on the wrong side of history today"?

Nonsense, I'm responding to NS who straight up said that cancellation was due to Trump being afraid of not-full turnout.

Further, Trump had no problem holding a rally in a covid hotspot, without mandated masks. The only issue for Trump with that event was that the arena didn't get filled up. So now saying he suddenly had come-to-Jesus moment and actually worries about his events spreading covid is of course not credible.

Did Trump tell you that? Because what he DOES says otherwise, just ask his many wifes.

If Trump cared he wouldn't be holding these rallies, at least not without much more serious precautions.

If he cared he would not be complaining about testing and would not be trying to kill testing funding.

If he cared he would be preparing people for the worst, not spreading his magical thinking about how it will all just go away tommrow and how wonderful it would be to go pack churches for Easter.
