Washington: US President Donald Trump has become increasingly concerned about the growing outbreak of CoronaVirus. He first wore the mask himself and appealed to people to apply the mask, then in view of the crisis, canceled the Republican convention in Florida next month. Trump also praised this decision, but now a new story is coming out behind it.
The conference, to be held in Jacksonville, Florida on August 24-27, was expected to gather all Republican delegates and party members had been preparing for it for a long time. Apart from this, here the party had to formally announce its presidential and vice presidential candidates. But Trump suddenly canceled the conference citing Corona.
Trump’s campaign manager immediately called his decision a public interest. He said that the President is concerned about the health and safety of Americans, so he canceled the important conference. However, the real story is something else. Reports state that Trump was not prepared to cancel the Florida Republican convention.
Trump wanted the conference to be held at all costs and that too with a large crowd. But the Sheriff of Jacksonville dashed his hopes. The Sheriff had clearly told the Trump administration that his city was not ready for the event. Only after this, President Trump announced the cancellation of the conference citing Corona.
It has also come to light that Trump first wanted to organize a conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, but the governor there expressed concern about public health. The governor suggested the presence of a limited number of people at the conference, but Trump was not ready for that. After which the conference was scheduled in Jacksonville.
So it would be more appropriate to say that Donald Trump did not cancel the conference in view of Corona, but he was forced to do so. Significantly, in the Corona affected states, Florida is third after California and New York. After announcing the cancellation of the conference, the president said, ‘I want to thank the people and mayor of Jacksonville who wanted to see the conference organized with great vigor, but people’s health means more to me’. By the way, according to the Quinnipiac poll, 80 percent of Florida voters do not like Governor Ron DeSantis and President Donald Trump.
