Trump has called off plans to host an election night event at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
According to The New York Times, Trump will instead likely remain at the White House on Nov 3.
Last weekend the Trump campaign sent fundraiser emails to donors announcing a drawing that would give one winner, along with a guest, the chance to be flown to the nation’s capital, where they would stay for free and attend the Nov. 3 party at Trump International as VIPs.
The email read,
“November 3rd will go down in history as the night we won FOUR MORE YEARS. It will be absolutely EPIC, and the only thing that could make it better is having YOU there.”
At a press conference Monday, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said she was not aware of the party. According to the Washingtonian Trump International is sold out on election night.
D.C.’s coronavirus regulations currently restrict events to a maximum capacity of 50 people, including all attendees and staff.
As you might have heard, Trump is trailing Joe Biden in nearly every poll across the country.
The latest Harvard CAPS-Harris survey of likely voters found Biden at 54 percent and Trump at 46 percent, with 57 percent of independents supporting the Democratic nominee.
