President Donald Trump is threatening to move the Republican National Convention away from North Carolina if the state’s Democratic governor refuses to give the convention organizers a green light to plan the event without any unforeseen social distancing and capacity restrictions.
The President spoke out about the situation in a series of Monday morning tweets.

Trump clarified that the Republican Party would have no choice but to move the convention to a more cooperative location if Governor Cooper continued to leave the event structure in jeopardy through social distancing and capacity restrictions.
