U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he had cancelled the Jacksonville, Fla. portion of the Republican National Convention, saying delegates will still place their vote in North Carolina, but the Florida portion would no longer take place.

He also said the convention will begin in North Carolina, claiming they were “never taking that off” from the plan.

Trump said that the decision to cancel the Florida portion of the rally is in relation to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the region, saying he wants to protect the American people.
