President Trump Rally in Portsmouth Postponed
President Trump's rally in Portsmouth on Saturday has been postponed due to weather.
According to Seacoast Online, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters that due to the threat of Tropical Storm Fay, they needed to delay by a week or two.
The rally was supposed to be held in the air hangar at Pease. Seacoast Online reports that Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement.
“It will be rescheduled and a new date will be announced soon.”
There had been a lot of differing opinions on the rally taking place in New Hampshire. At the last rally in Tulsa, very few attendees work masks. Public officials are still cautioning against large gatherings as the Coronavirus cases continue to increase.
Republican 1st District U.S. House candidate Matt Mowers tells WMUR:
"This trip shows how important winning this district and New Hampshire is to the president."
According to Boston Herald, everyone that attends the rally must sign something saying they can't sue if they contract coronavirus:
“In attending the event, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and waive, release, and discharge Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; Portsmouth International Airport at Pease; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers from any and all liability under any theory, whether in negligence or otherwise, for any illness or injury.”
Governor Chris Sununu had said that he would meet with the President, but would not be attending the rally, according to Seacoast Online.
So, if you were planning on heading to Portsmouth on Saturday for the rally, it's a no-go for now!
