President Donald Trump speaks to the media in the Rose Garden at the White House on July 14, 2020 in Washington, DC.

  • President Trump told the New York Post on Thursday that he would likely give his Republican National Convention speech from the White House lawn.

  • “I’ll probably be giving my speech at the White House because it is a great place. It’s a place that makes me feel good, it makes the country feel good,” he told the tabloid.

  • “We’d do it possibly outside on one of the lawns,” Trump said.

  • Presidents typically avoid conflating their official capacities with their electoral campaigns, a tradition repeatedly flouted by Trump.

  • Trump previously floated giving his acceptance speech at the Great Battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

  • The Republican National Convention was planned for Charlotte, North Carolina, but some events were moved to Jacksonville, Florida, over disagreements about capacity and social distancing with the governor.

  • The Jacksonville plan was nixed due to the coronavirus pandemic; scaled-down events will happen in Charlotte and there will be a live stream. The event will take place from August 21 to August 24.
