Officials for President Trump’s campaign announced that Trump’s rally in New Hampshire, set to go off on Saturday, will be postponed to an unannounced future date.
Tim Murtaugh, the Trump 2020 communications director said, “The rally scheduled for Saturday in Portsmouth, New Hampshire has been postponed for safety reasons because of Tropical Storm Fay. It will be rescheduled and a new date will be announced soon.”
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany further clarified the delay and told reporters that the delay will likely be one to two weeks long.
President Trump announced on Twitter that,
With Tropical Storm Fay heading towards the Great State of New Hampshire this weekend, we are forced to reschedule our Portsmouth, New Hampshire Rally at the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease. Stay safe, we will be there soon! #MAGA2020
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 10, 2020
The postponement of the rally, the President’s second since the coronavirus lockdown, will likely benefit the campaign in the long run.
His previous rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, did not go as the President had hoped. The more time that passes the more supporters will be willing to venture out to a rally.
