RALEIGH – President Donald Trump wanted assurances that Governor Roy Cooper would not restrict the scale and scope of the 2020 RNC in the Queen City; Cooper could not relinquish his arbitrary power of dictating what people are allowed to do, especially if it disrupts the party plans of the political opposition. So, President Trump announced Tuesday night that the 2020 RNC will be moving to another yet to be determined state.
NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley had this to say about Democrat Governor Roy Cooper running the Republican National Convention out of our state.
All so Cooper can signal allegiance to the collective, earn his stripes among the energetic dictators of dogma on the Left, and bathe in his sense of sanctimony.
Exploiting emergency powers to limit the RNC does more than deny the Charlotte area a sorely needed economic shot in the arm, it suppresses perhaps the single largest event to drive Republican enthusiasm among North Carolinians. That means it hurts his opponent Dan Forest, who would have no doubt had a massive stage alongside President Trump.
And then Cooper can claim pure motives, “It’s about saving lives,” as he continues to wield unjustified power over the citizens of North Carolina.
Actually, let’s open the line right now; what are the odds that Governor Roy Cooper moves to fully reopen once the RNC announces it’s new host location. By the time late August rolls around, Cooper may even feign regret that the RNC chose to leave North Carolina, that he was only being cautious.
