It's Trump's call on what the GOP convention will look like
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is slowly coming to accept that the Republican National Convention won't be the four-night infomercial for his reelection that he'd anticipated.
Already the late August event has moved from North Carolina to Florida, and now coronavirus cases are spiking and there's an economic recession.
Trump aides and allies are increasingly questioning whether the convention will be worth the trouble. Some are advocating that it be scrapped altogether.
They reason that conventions are meant to lay out a candidate's vision for the coming four years, not spark months of intrigue over the health and safety those who attend.
Ultimately, the call on whether to move forward will be Trump's alone.
