U.S. President Donald Trump revealed in a series of tweets that he is no longer considering North Carolina for the 2020 Republican National Convention and that now the Republican Party is hunting for a new venue for the convention.

Trump’s tweets came after North Carolina’s Gov. Roy Cooper denied the request by the Republican National Committee (RNC) to conduct a “full convention,” considering the ongoing threat due to coronavirus pandemic.

It has been reported that Cooper asked for proper social distancing measures, smaller crowds and proper personal protective measures such as face coverings in place for the convention to give permission. However, since the focus was on holding a full convention with a huge crowd, Cooper does not was to put the people of the state at risk.

To his decision, Trump posted a series of Tweets, taking a dig at Cooper’s decision.

Cooper responded well to the president’s tweets that he had always wanted to hold a safe RNC Convention but since the committee does not want to scale down the event or even follow the safety measures, he would rather put his people’s safety over everything else.

Cooper’s decision has received a mixed response from the netizens. While some are praising him for putting people first, others believe that it will deprive the state of millions of dollars and jobs.

Meanwhile, social distancing measures and personal protection seems to have gone for a toss in the last few days in the U.S., due to the ongoing protests across the country against the death of George Floyd.

The health experts believe that such large gatherings can create a “catastrophic setback for controlling COVID-19 in the U.S.” as more cities and states are moving toward reopening the economy.

The Mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, said on Sunday, May 31, that if people were out protesting on the streets last night, then they should get their coronavirus done this week.

"If you were out protesting last night, you probably need to go get a COVID test this week, because there's still a pandemic in America that's killing black and brown people at higher numbers,” said Bottoms at a news briefing.
