Title: Trump says Republican National Convention might move from Charlotte—no other city wanted to host it

President Donald Trump has threatened to scrap plans to hold the upcoming Republican National Convention in North Carolina and move the event elsewhere if the state's governor does not agree to allow "full attendance" at the August event.

Currently, under North Carolina's coronavirus response measures, gatherings of more than 10 people in indoor settings are not permitted under "most circumstances," while outdoor gatherings are limited to a maximum of 25 people.

Demanding an answer on whether Republicans would be able to move forward with a fully-attended convention in August, Trump said that if North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, could not commit to the allowance, the RNC would be reluctantly forced to move the convention and "all of the jobs and economic development it brings" to another state.

While the coronavirus pandemic could make it difficult for Trump to find another state willing to hold the mass event, another clear hurdle stands in the president's way: the fact that few states wanted to host the event in the first place.

An article published by New York Magazine's Intelligencer blog laid out the GOP's struggle with the headline: "GOP Awards Its 2020 Convention to the Only City That Sorta Kinda Wanted It."

At the time, Charlotte, which had previously hosted the 2012 Democratic National Convention, had been the only city to publicly pursue the convention, while other cities, including Philadelphia, San Antonio and Nashville, backed away from the potential bid.

In an op-ed, San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg explained the city's decision, asserting that "national political conventions aren't the great deal for cities that the parties and their advocates want us to believe."

"That's the reason San Antonio hasn't pursued a bid for either national political convention in 20 years," Nirenberg said, noting that "only one city seems to be aggressively pursuing the 2020 Republican National Convention this time around."

In a separate statement Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales said that she further believed that holding the GOP event in San Antonio would break with the city's commitment to "cultural inclusion."

While Las Vegas had also been in the running to host the event, the city's Convention and Visitors Authority reportedly overruled local Republicans officials' efforts to see the RNC held there.

In the end, Charlotte, which was actively pursuing the chance to host the event, appeared to be the best, and perhaps only, choice.

Now, however, Trump has threatened to pull the plug on plans to host the RNC in the North Carolina city.

Gov. Cooper's office has responded to the threat, with a spokesperson asserting that the state would continue to work with Republicans on planning the event, but would also rely on "data and science to protect our state's public health and safety."

As of Monday morning, the state had more than 23,200 confirmed coronavirus cases and at least 744 deaths, according to government data.

On Friday, North Carolina entered "Phase 2" of its plans to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic, with restaurants and some businesses allowed to open, with enforced limitations on capacity.

Phase 2 is expected to be in place until at least June 26. That is when officials are expected to make a decision on whether to extend it or relax the rules.

LOL! Any stupid goober wanting to attend a Trump pep-rally under those congested/contagious conditions is more than welcome to, as far as I'm concerned... Really, why should I care if the entire RNC becomes a focal point for this deadly disease? As long as they stay the hell away from Houston, let Trump contaminate as many of his own supporters as he wants! LOL! The more that succumb to the virus, the fewer votes he actually gets.... Talk about having his own "strategery" backfire in his face... even Jorge Dubya Bush wasn't THAT dumb!

I went shopping today at Macy's. Most wore masks and a good number didn't. They're not falling for this bullshit.

I gave my bartender my hermetically sealed backup mask and told her to put it on because she's ugly.

Don't go shopping with a woman.

Hope you tipped her well.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Little green Willie is ok with his candidates murdering children. Of course he is a psycho on the path to hell. We always knew that. If he is ok with murdering kids, then of course he like all democrats who talk about being pro choice are ok with murdering anyone and everyone. When someone evil like little willie fantacises about better people than he dying. It is part of the record that will send him to hell. Maybe he will repent and avoid the hot place. I have my doubts as he continually supports child sacrifice candidates.

Would you throw a life preserver to someone like that that was drowning?

Maybe Ms Gonzales should tell her racist brown constituents to "get over your racism and become Americans!"?

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
