Trump Threatens to Move North Carolina Convention If Governor Refuses to Confirm Attendance Limits

We are not going to pretend to know exactly how the mind of the president works. However, we are going to go out on a huge limb and say that he’s probably got some sort of ulterior motive here. While we understand where Trump is coming from to a certain extent, it is too hard for a state governor to make any ironclad promises during the midst of a global pandemic.

No one knows how a state will be able to react to this sort of request, especially when we are three months away from the date in question. The state of North Carolina may have a Democratic governor but there is no reason to believe that they would intentionally suppress the attendance at their convention.

States love their tourism dollars and events like these draw in lots of visitors (and eyeballs). There’s not much to be gained by keeping people from attending any public event. Things can change a lot over the course of three months and that is something that the president would do well to remember.

He was the one who was tweeting that the coronavirus was nothing to worry about back in February. If anyone can appreciate how quickly circumstances can change, it would be him. In fact, there were no confirmed deaths within the United States at the time that Trump’s tweet was sent. While later investigations proved that this mindset was wrong, the point still stands.

Trump is also claiming that Governor Cooper is still in the mood to keep everything shut down. This does not seem to be the case, though. The state is currently in the process of reopening. Retail businesses, child care facilities, salons and restaurants have been given the go ahead to open their doors. The only caveat? They must remain at 50 percent of capacity or lower.

Movie theaters, bars and gyms remain closed. The first phase of North Carolina’s plan only took two weeks. It’s not like Trump can claim that the governor is intentionally slowing things down. The second phase of the state’s reopening plans are scheduled to last from two to five weeks. If the state is able to stay on schedule, phase three will be reached well before the convention begins.

CNN reports that the party’s officials are completely blindsided by the announcement. They are still in the process of planning the convention but health and safety are always going to come first. The Republican National Convention is planning for all potential issues as well. If a limited capacity convention is the best choice, this is what will be done.

But behind the scenes, Republicans are looking at possible contingency plans, including limiting the number of people who descend on Charlotte to only delegates, and making alternate delegates stay home, according to interviews with a half-dozen Republicans close to the planning.

Mr. Trump, who was heavily involved in the staging of his last nominating convention, has even shown a new openness to participating in a scaled-down event. He has mused aloud to several aides about why the convention can’t simply be held in a hotel ballroom in Florida, given all of the health concerns and the fact that Florida is further along in reopening portions of the state…

[RNC chair Ronna] McDaniel and other Republicans have said that they have hired a medical expert and that they are consulting with the governor of North Carolina and the mayor of Charlotte, who have been focused on controlling the spread of the coronavirus. Local politicians in North Carolina, including Republicans, have expressed skepticism that the convention will be able to go forward as planned.

Contingency plans like these must be put into place well in advance. No one knows what is going to happen or what the state of North Carolina will look like by the time August rolls around. All of these concerns might seem rather petty by then or the idea of a mass indoor gathering could come across as foolish. There’s no crystal ball to let us know what to expect at the moment.

The Wall Street Journal does not seem very confident that the convention is going to be held. Events like these are known as “super spreaders”. Researchers are under the belief that mass gatherings were responsible for the explosive spread. Mass transit would certainly qualify and that probably explains why New York City is in such trouble.

This is why professional sports leagues are taking their sweet time to reopen and those that do will be re-starting play without fans. If the MLB and the NBA still have not resumed their seasons by the time August arrives, the Republican National Convention is not likely to unfold in the manner people have come to expect.

In the meantime, all anyone can do is wait. As the old song goes, this is the hardest part. If anything, Trump may be in the process of looking for a Republican state to move the convention to. All we know is that we won’t be surprised if the convention is held at Mar-a-Lago!

    1. Democrats protect illegals the most to work on their mega brothels and street corners and fuck parties. Notice they always refuse to have people who hire them get arrested. Meanwhile, Obama gave more blowjobs to illegals than any other President in history. Go check that.

  1. First off I do not trust any left leaning writer that sends out articals or blogs about any thing Republican. I can only say that they have a different view point about every thing with the end goal of turning our great free country into a socialist dictator ship run by the Democrap eliets and every one else are slaves. (That includes all the people that are so brain washed that they voted democrap) And with the Democraps pushing for mail in votes, I will be totally mad that all of my deceased relatives that voted Republican all their lies will now be voting Democrap. People of America wake up before you end up being a Democrap slave.

  2. Texas & Georgia have already said they’ll take it. Why spend your money in a blue state? Democrats are willing to destroy this country and all who back our president so why would anyone think that their word is any good. They would love to have the state cancel at the last minute. GO TRUMP 2020-2024-2028————————-

  3. I’m a Native of Charlotte and still live in North Carolina. After what everyone has endured from the pandemic, financially, emotionally, mentally, how can YOU Governor Cooper justify keeping Our Great State from having the RNC which will help small businesses recover?? Is your alliance with Nancy more important to you than the welfare of the Good People of N.C. that you were sworn in to uphold and Protect??May God have
    Mercy on you for playing Politics, You will Lose!!! Even the Dems in the State will remember the revenue you cost them and will take it Very personally!! Don’t under estimate OUR GREAT PRESIDENT, YOU ARE REPLACEABLE!! Gov. Cooper, you should put your bias feelings aside and feel Privileged to Host the RNC in Our State and help our people recover with the Revenue it brings!! Maybe we should send you back to College for an Economic Class???

  4. I understand President Trump’s concern regarding the governor of North Carolina. The 2nd Annual Medicine Conference was held in Charlotte, NC May 23 and May 24 and and they had last minute restrictions on the number of those that could occupy a conference room (10) and they ended up having most of the conference in the hotel lobby which had less restrictions. This was a time when churches could operate at half capacity so ten to a conference room was a power trip on the governor’s part. The conference discussed various topics such as face masks and the effect on the immune system. Dr. Fauci’s effects on the country was also discussed. This was an international meeting (viewed on-line) and a national meeting.

  5. Well said imo. This entire dirty mess is scripted and will continue for another hour years when Trump is reflected! Hopefully he has bags of tricks up his sleeves??

  6. Most of us have heard about the detrimental health results of shortening, but a lot of older recipes necessitate it.
    Furthermore, provide music to avoid the discomfort of an very quiet space.
    The literal meaning of the phrase ‘shiatsu’ is finger
    pressure and shiatsu massages relax your back and soft tissues around your body.

  7. For instance, you won’t are afflicted by low hypertension as well
    as your heartrate will try to be normal. Yoga exercises are also effective in increasing the size of the bust line.

    way you can keep them in good shape for a long time.
