Trump Suggests That He Might Not Hold Any More Campaign Rallies

Trump Rally

President Trump has suggested that he might not hold any more campaign rallies and he has cited the coronavirus as the reason.

According to Fox News:

President Trump in two separate interviews on Tuesday indicated that he may not be holding any more in-person rallies before the Nov. 3 presidential election due to coronavirus concerns, a blow to the candidate who thrives on stage, riling up crowds with his fiery speeches attacking opponents and touting his own accomplishments.

Trump spoke with Fox Sports’ Clay Travis on “Outkick the Coverage” and Hugh Hewitt on his namesake radio show, and in both interviews alluded that rallies may be a thing of the past for his campaign.

“You can’t have empty seats,” Trump said to Travis while discussing some of the college football crowds he’s seen, which he said impressed him compared to NFL crowds. “If I had five empty seats, for instance, they said, when I do a rally, sir, the reason I won’t do them because you can’t have one seat and then seven around that seat, sir, have to be empty. Oh, that’ll look great.”

And with Hewitt, Trump said that his campaign “can’t” hold rallies because of social distancing requirements — though he did brag that as he drives to and from engagements in swing states like Ohio, Texas and Florida, the road is lined with “the largest crowds on the highway I’ve ever seen.”



President Trump’s campaign has been targeting voters in-person by knocking doors. The Republican National Convention was canceled in Charlotte this year and in-person events were axed.

President Trump has stated that he will give his acceptance speech either at the White House or at Gettysburg.
