CLEVELAND, OH - JULY 21: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks while formally accepting his party's nomination on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention on July 21, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received the number of votes needed to secure the party's nomination. An estimated 50,000 people came to Cleveland for the event, including hundreds of protesters and thousands of members of the media. The four-day convention ran from July 18-21.

President Trump moved the full RNC convention from Charlotte to Jacksonville because he felt that Governor Cooper was enacting crowd restrictions due to political reasons and not for public health. Now things have changed, again.

Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles says the city will host a significantly scaled-down Republican National Convention next month.

This after President Trump announced he was canceling the Jacksonville, Florida portion of the convention due to a “flare-up” of coronavirus cases there. The Charlotte portion of the RNC will just have a small group of delegates gathering in the city for just a few hours on August 24th.

No other details are available yet, except that Trump’s speech will be delivered in a “different way.”
