GOP convention now down to 336 actual delegates-Trump speech'somewhere'

Hey, where'd the Trump convention disappear to?
This could develop into an even bigger fiasco than it seems.


[thehill.com]
The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Wednesday night voted unanimously to scale back its convention in Charlotte, N.C. and move President Trump’s acceptance speech to a different location.

The RNC Executive Committee voted to reduce the number of invited delegates to a total of 336, amounting to six from each state and territory, an RNC spokesperson said in a statement obtained by The Hill.

The almost 2,500 delegates who would typically attend the convention will reportedly still vote for the presidential and vice presidential nominations even if they are not physically present, but only on-site delegates will vote on other convention business.

All committees will not meet except for the credentials panels, meaning the platform approved in 2016 will become Trump’s in 2020.

And the “acceptance session of the convention,” which refers to Trump’s acceptance speech, will be in a location other than Charlotte, and all delegates and alternates can attend and bring a guest if allowed by law, according to reports.

Get out there and rid America of this Treason tribe on November 3.

So a handful will meet, and without him. And he’ll make a speech elsewhere. Makes perfect sense?

After all, he’s been making campaign acceptance speeches at his hate rallies for this election since before he took the office.

Melania and Ivanka won’t have to worry about buying a new dress for the occasion.

This is perfect for Trump. All he cares about during the convention is making his speech. Now he can make it at a rally in front of all his MAGAts -- and any of the conventioneers who would like to join them in spreading coronavirus around. The business of the convention -- rubber stamping Trump's platform and making boring speeches -- can get done without interrupting Trump's executive time.

Looks like they'll likely be more protesters than delagates and more police than protesters.
