Trump will accept the Republican nomination for the US elections in the city of Jacksonville, Florida

United States President Donald Trump will accept the Republican nomination for the United States election in the city of Jacksonville, Florida, announced the head of the Republican National Committee, Ronna McDaniel.

“We are delighted to celebrate this momentous occasion in the great city of Jacksonville,” said McDaniel through his account on the social network Twitter.

“Florida is not only his (Trump’s) home state, it is crucial to victory,” he added, noting that the event seeks to “bring this great celebration and economic blessing to the sunny state.”

Thus, Trump will deliver his acceptance speech for the nomination at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, which has a capacity for 15,000 people, on August 27, as long as Republicans respect the schedule they have set, CNN reported.

McDaniel’s announcement comes after weeks of tug-of-war with North Carolina Governor Democrat Roy Cooper on behalf of the Republican National Convention.

The president, who has repeatedly questioned the confinement measures adopted by various US states, has already threatened to change the venue of the event if Cooper did not clarify if the facilities could be “fully occupied” despite the COVID pandemic. -19. Cooper, meanwhile, noted that the state “relies on data and science to protect our public health.”

However, as the Republican Party signed a contract to host the event in Charlotte, they are required to hold a portion of the convention in the city of North Carolina.
