Trump says GOP plans for Florida convention are ‘flexible’

In a shocking reversal from his previously intractable calls to hold a full GOP convention, Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he is “very flexible” about plans for the convention in light of the recent coronavirus spike in the US.

The Republican National Convention, scheduled to be held in late August in Florida, is now in question due to Florida’s major spike in COVID-19 cases.

Voice of America host Greta Van Susteren asked Trump in an interview if he would “consider not having as big a convention” if cases in the Sunshine state continue to spike.

“Well, we’re always looking at different things,” Trump replied, explaining that the GOP had already been forced to change plans once after North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) signaled that he was uncomfortable holding the previously scheduled convention.

“Then we went to Florida, and when we went, we signed a few weeks ago, it looked good, and now all of a sudden it’s spiking up a little bit,” Trump continued.

Trump slammed Cooper’s reluctance to hold a convention in the state and promptly took his business to Florida, where Republican Governor Ron DeSantis welcomed the convention with open arms. However, on Wednesday, Florida reported 10,000 new cases of COVID-19, injecting uncertainty into the state’s reopening plans.

Trump explained to Susteren that the GOP is “very flexible,” but did not reveal if any major changes were in the works.

According to a recent Politico report, “Republicans familiar with the event’s planning” revealed that the party is working on a backup plan should the need arise.

  1. “cases” mean nothing. Many people who test positive have to be re-tested regularly until they test negative. Trouble is, those people are being listed as new cases every time they test positive. The number that matters is DEATHS and Florida and Texas have the fewest deaths in the country while NJ and NY still have the highest. Trump should go ahead.

      1. I agree as well . The left wing nuts r using the increase in cases to panic everyone to stay at home. I say screw them they are all liars

    1. Betty, glade to see some one knows the truth. My wife’s work college came down with Covid-19 and every time he went in to test they marked his family of 4 as new positive cases even though the rest of the family tested negative. It’s a sad day!!! But the hell is yet to come, as we all start to learn there true antics

    2. We have a 99.98% of Survial! A pro ⛳ golfer testing positive
      With drew that tournament. Went home tested 3 more times. Was negative. He played next week. Tested again B4 tournament negative. False positives.

    3. I am not surprised. I think a major part of the Corona Virus drama, which was intentionally NOT reported by the Chinese, who in return got the help of WHO and Dr. Fauci, the medical guru, who appeared every morning with a different prognosis or what to do. These and our CDC are leftists and a danger to Donald Trump, who they all hate. And as far as China is concerned, Barrack Hussein Obama, the Muslim from Kenya, who became an illegal president, got us into all of that with his “New World Order”, a creation of super Anti-American, George Soros, a confirmed Marxist Communist, where all countries trade with one another. That is fine, but NOT in the case of China, they are an oppressive Nation, they meddle in their neighboring countries and threaten them. And they held back on the Corona Virus since potentially August of 2019. And now suddenly, Donald Trump is to be blamed. I sincerely hope that the entire world will decent on China, stop trading, get all manufacturing back “home”AND file suit in the international court in The Hague for atrocities against the people of the world.

  2. Do a full convention and show the Dummorats how it’s done. Mask up if you want to and keep your hands sanitized.

  3. President Trump do not stop the Florida convention over this SCAM, enough is enough, you will certainly Win if you do. So Stand and stop this Madness. of the Communists DumbOcrates, do not listen to their SACM any longer.

  4. It’s all part of the corupt left to keep pushing racism .spike to virus again to shut trump down ,and they want to use the virus for mail in voter faurd, and old senile joe can stay in the basement in hope’s to win in nov without even have to debate against trump.NYT put out than biden shouldn’t debate trump unless trump releases his tax return..u can see they are already making an excuse for the old man .

  5. Consider using ultra violet on everything and everyone that comes in and out of the convention. When applied to the masks, Soc. Distancing. Also let’s take a stand and severely limit violators, ie; must have a doctor’s order not to ware a mask.

  6. The World Does Not Stop Turning, There Will Be An Election, The RadicalLeftLiberals Will Do Anything To Lesson The President’s Chance Of Re-Election, No One Is Forced To Go, Continue As Planned, The Attendees Can Decide, The Vulnerable Watch From Home ! #TeamTrump2020

  7. President Trump you have had to make more decisions than most previous Presidents, I am glad it is you most would folded

  8. Clean swabs with patients name. All testing positive. I don’t trust them. Truth now 💯. God Bless 🙏 USA 🙏💞. Trump 💯 win 💪 Pence 2020!

  9. I agree! Please do go ahead with the conversation. I too am tired of the fake media and their fake numbers!!

  10. JOIN THE “SILENT MAJORITY” , SUPPORTING DONALD TRUMP FOR ANOTHER FOR 4 YEARS.
    SOME OF IT IS ON FACEBOOK, WHERE I AM CURRENTLY BLOCKED A G A I N !

    THERE ARE ALREADY ONE MILLION, WHO HAVE SIGNED UP. WE HAVE 4 MONTHS, SO WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO PULL THIS OFF. WE HAVE TO GET THESE ROTTEN ANTI-AMERICAN DESTROYERS, AKA ‘DEMOCRAT(IC) PARTY, AN OXYMORON, THERE IS NOTHING DEMOCRAT OR DEMOCRATIC ABOUT THEM.

  11. Do the damn convention and quit listening to these evil scum bags like Fauci, CDC and the Demoncrats!! Its time to even get bolder President Trump. No more from these people!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. First, disinvite all us folks with conditions that put us in the most vulnerable group.
    Then, beginning NOW, test attendees monthly, and during the last month, check them more often. Then, LET ‘R RIP! Masks Optional. Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf

  13. PRESIDENT TRUMP needs to be on the campaign trail. Sleepy Joe probably will NEVER DEBATE AGAINST TRUMP – DEM’S WON’T ALLOW IT.
    GET-OUT-THERE, Mr. President. We need you to “do your thing” which you do so very well and insure re-election for yourself and hopefully for a strong Republican House & Senate.

  14. We need to re-elect President Trump & Vice President Pence and all Republican Senators & Congressmen/women
    for 2020 and start praying to God to help because America will not be “Great” if the democrats win this election.

    They all should be deported along with all the illegals that are in this country. we especially need to get rid of George Soros.
