Fed Up, President Trump Moves RNC Convention Out of North Carolina

Less than two weeks ago, President Donald Trump was up front and honest about his thinking as it pertained to holding the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina as scheduled.

“I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August,” Trump tweeted late last month. “Unfortunately, Democrat Governor, @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed full attendance in the Arena.

“In other words,” he continued, “we would be spending millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space.”

Trump warned that indecision on Cooper’s part would push the party to make some alternative plans.

“Plans are being made by many thousands of enthusiastic Republicans, and others, to head to beautiful North Carolina in August.,” he wrote. “They 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 of the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site. This is not something I want to do. Thank you, and I LOVE the people of North Carolina!”

Cooper failed to heed Trump’s warning, however. In a letter of Republican officials on Tuesday, the Democrat governor explained that “the people of North Carolina do not know what the status of COVID-19 will be in August, so planning for a scaled-down convention with fewer people, social distancing and face coverings is a necessity.”

President Trump had heard enough.

“Had long planned to have the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, a place I love,” Trump tweeted. “Now, @NC_Governor Roy Cooper and his representatives refuse to guarantee that we can have use of the Spectrum Arena – Spend millions of dollars, have everybody arrive, and then tell them they will not be able to gain entry. Governor Cooper is still in Shelter-In-Place Mode, and not allowing us to occupy the arena as originally anticipated and promised. Would have showcased beautiful North Carolina to the World, and brought in hundreds of millions of dollars, and jobs, for the State. Because of @NC_Governor, we are now forced to seek another State to host the 2020 Republican National Convention.”

Can’t really add much to that; Trump pretty much said it all.

Well, maybe we’ll just add one last thing. This was a scene from Charlotte on Tuesday night:

These Democrats are awfully selective about when and how they enforce their precious social distancing, no?

What do you think?

  1. He, Cooper, and the rest of the Dems would have bent over backwards if it were Bama coming to town!!!! Believe me I know for I live thirty five mile from the Great State of Mecklenberg Co., Charlotte, NC.

  2. Texas is a GREAT PLACE for a Convention!! Our Governor, Greg Abbot, is the best and a Republican! Also, we’re not as overwhelmed with Covid as many other states.

    However, I LOVE Colorado, too!!!

  3. Good for Pres.45..Mayor of D.C. Tried to get rid of NG.Friday May 5 she wrote on street in Yellow BLM & hung a black st sign Black Live Dr. All Democrats HATE USA!!! Obama’s oldest daughter caught on video leaving ANTIFA MEETING IN MARYLAND. N.Y.MAYORS DAUGHTER ATTESTED RIOTTING.. INSURRECTION ON OUR COUNTRY THATS DEMOCRATS ANTI GOD,ANTI AMERICA ANTI MANKIND. THEY ARE EVIL

  4. Sec.Epster NEEDS TO RESIGN….THIS TERRORIST GROUPS ARE COMMING INTO COUNTRY TO BURN OUR BARNS DESTROY OUR HOMES AND KILL HOME
    OWNERS…AOC & SQUAD GETTING WHAT THEY WANT..W/DEMOCRATS & ELITES.TERROIS

  5. Nice Goin’, COOP ….

    The RNC would have done ANYTHING to help accommodate preparation for the Convention in Charlotte, but YOU ( in all your wisdom ) turned your back on them. You’ve not shown your face in over 3 1/2 years of your term as Governor — unless it was to deliver BAD NEWS. You are known as being one of the most uncooperative politicians in the entire state of North Carolina. You’ve endeared yourself to no one.

    Hint: Don’t count on be re-elected in November, bub !

  6. I’d love The R.N.C, to hold their convention in Texas but sadly, just about every major city has been taken over by Carpet Bagging Demontard Moon Bats.

  7. Looks like the “Honorable?”governor of North Carolina has reached the conclusion that it’s OK for rioters to gather in mobs day and night in Charlotte ,NC because”Social Distancing ” isn’t really important any longer unless you are a Republican and you want to spend millions to have a convention there ! It’s similar to a decision to keep Amazon out of New York by a “Barmaid”newbie that goes by the “nick name” AOC !Her decision ,much like Governor Coopers resulted in the Tremendous loss of JOBS and REVENUE in the Millions Hurting the Economy of both States ! Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmmmm !
