For President Donald Trump , Memorial Day was just another opportunity to take shots at North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper as the threatened to pull the Republican National Convention from the state.
The president who is striving to get the country reopened for business took a swipe at Governor Cooper for not opening up the state which made him “unable to guarantee” that the area will be allowed to be filled to capacity at the convention.
“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,” the president tweeted
“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”
Donald Trump went on further to add that:
“Plans are being made by many thousands of enthusiastic Republicans, and others, to head to beautiful North Carolina in August. 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!”
Republican Party organizers were taken by surprise by the presidents statements as they had already begun preparations for the convention which is meant to take place from 24-27 August.
This was just seen as one of the many tactics president Donald Trump has been implementing to get Governors such a Roy Cooper to fall inline with his plans to reopen the country after the country took a heavy hit due to the coronavirus pandemic.
