With the cancellation of the major event planned in Florida, Trump turned around. It was only in June that he announced the relocation of parts of the party convention originally planned in Charlotte with around 19,000 delegates. North Carolina’s Governor Roy Cooper had declared because of the corona pandemic that such a major event would only be possible under conditions such as wearing masks and fewer participants.

The 140-character president is known to like to go overboard and make opinions with his Twitter account. Donald Trump has no bite inhibitions at all, even if presidential restraint would sometimes be appropriate. We have collected his most caustic tweets – without claiming to be exhaustive.

“We had a huge thing planned,” said Trump. He does not want to find himself in the situation in which he is accused of doing something unsafe. Rather, he wants to be a role model. Critics accuse the president of the opposite. Early on in the pandemic, Trump urged the economy to reopen and a quick return to normal operations. In June he held an election campaign meeting in front of several thousand supporters in a closed hall after a break of several months against the advice of experts.

The situation is coming to a head

However, the corona situation in Florida has worsened significantly since mid-June. In the state with a good 21 million inhabitants, there are now around 400,000 known infections with the Sars-CoV-2 pathogen.

The Democrats will also hold their party conference planned for August for the nomination of their presidential candidate mostly virtually. Ex-Vice President Joe Biden should accept the nomination as a candidate at the original venue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, it said. However, the delegates should not travel due to the corona pandemic.
