US President Donald Trump on Monday said that if North Carolina did not allow the Republican National Convention due to coronavirus fears, planners would find another site for the event.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
Warning Democratic Governor Roy Cooper that his state would suffer economically if he blocked the event, Trump demanded in a series of early Monday tweets that Cooper allow "full attendance" to the convention in the state's largest city Charlotte on Aug. 24.
Trump implied that the state would lose the jobs and economic benefits that came with the massive event.
"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. 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, 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 complained.
He continued said planners must be "immediately given an answer by the Governor as to whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied."
