CHARLOTTE – President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, campaign advisor, and native of North Carolina, Lara Trump, appeared on the radio show of former Governor Pat McCrory to discuss the reelection campaign, the economy, and, of course, the coronavirus. Notably, while the Left salivates over Governor Roy Cooper’s power to cancel the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte, Lara Trump excitedly announced that, as of now, it’s all set to go forward.
And, it’s going to be ‘epic,’ she said.
“Listen, we’re still planning on having it. It’s still going to go forward, we’re trying to plan an epic, epic convention.You probably know, I worked really hard to make sure it was in my home state, I was really excited when we got that solidified.”
North Carolina is a pivotal swing state that can make or break President Trump’s reelection chances in 2020. Lara Trump, who grew up in the Wrightsville Beach area and graduated from N.C. State University, was a vital part of the president’s victory strategy in 2016, helping focus more attention on North Carolina that helped him carry the state.
The convention is to be held at the Spectrum Center from August 24-27, and the RNC has announced they’ve hired a doctor to design health and safety protocols and assuage any lingering fears over the coronavirus. Recently, some on the Left have hinted that Governor Roy Cooper could (should?) cancel the convention if he thinks the mass gathering risks an outbreak.
Already, goal posts are being moved out into summer and beyond, with fears of a second wave adding to a general resistance by public health officials to lift social distancing restrictions. Some fall semesters of school are already being canceled in a continuation of the over the top reaction by officials. Think canceling the biggest MAGA event in history is beyond Cooper and the Democrats?
