The Jacksonville, Fla., component of the Republican National Convention has been cancelled, President Trump announced on Thursday, as cases of coronavirus continue to spike across the state.

“I looked at my team and I said the timing for this event is not right. It’s just not right with what’s been happening,” Trump said at the daily coronavirus briefing.

“They said ‘Sir, we can make this work very easily’ … I said there’s nothing more important in our country than keeping our people safe, whether it’s from the China virus or the radical left mob.”
