Trump Claims “Zero Interest” In Holding Convention At His Miami Resort As “The Ballroom Isn’t Big Enough”

Forbes reports:

President Donald Trump said in a tweet Monday he has “zero interest” in moving the Republican National Convention to his Doral golf resort in Florida, just hours after he suggested the August convention would have to move out of North Carolina unless Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper agrees to allow thousands to gather for the convention.

Earlier this month, Trump accused Cooper of “playing politics” with the state’s reopening, which is going through a phased process like many other states, moving to Phase 2 of its reopening last Friday.

Though the state could officially end its phased reopening earlier this summer, it’s unclear whether a convention potentially packing tens of thousands into the Spectrum Center in downtown Charlotte would be allowed to go on.
