President Donald Trump’s rally in New Hampshire has been postponed, his campaign said Friday.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on Air Force One Friday that it will be delayed a week or two because of impending Tropical Storm Fay, ABC News reported.
“The rally scheduled for Saturday in Portsmouth, New Hampshire has been postponed for safety reasons because of Tropical Storm Fay. It will be rescheduled and a new date will be announced soon,” Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh later said in a statement.
The rally was set to be held at an airport hangar in Portsmouth Saturday night.
Some state Democrats had expressed frustration with Gov. Chris Sununu saying the campaign rally in Portsmouth would put the lives and livelihoods of constituents at risk for partisan reasons.
But Sununu, who is a Republican, pointed to the Black Lives Matter protests saying the state did not see a surge in cases. He said he did not plan to attend the rally.
Tulsa, Oklahoma is blaming a recent surge in COVID-19 cases in part on the president’s rally there last month.
