The tale of the 2020 Republican National Convention is like nothing we’ve seen before in this nation.
The event, where incumbent Republican President Donald Trump will officially accept the nomination for the 2020 election, was originally planned for Charlotte, North Carolina. When coronavirus cases began to blossom in the south, however, the Tar Heel State governor put the kibosh on the GOP’s plans for a fully-attended, mask-less endeavor.
That sent the Republicans looking for a new venue, which they thought that they had found in Jacksonville, Florida. Again, COVID-19 had other plans.
Now, with only a few scant weeks remaining until Trump is set to receive the nod, there’s a very real possibility that the Commander in Chief could be accepting his anointment from fairly close to home.
Republicans are reportedly considering the White House South Lawn as a venue for President Trump’s speech to formally accept the the party’s 2020 presidential nomination next month.
The Washington Post and Fox News both reported on the possibility of Trump delivering the speech at the White House, with each citing a source familiar with the talks in reports late Tuesday.
The outlets noted that the White House lawn is one of several venues being considered and that nothing has been finalized as plans for the convention remain fluid.
As with any decision involving the President, the liberal left found ways to rain on the parade, this time citing their belief that the use of the White House for campaigning purposes would constitute a violation of the Hatch Act.
