Gettysburg is one such place that has attracted public attention. Gettysburg is an open national park with a built-in theme about a divided country. Aides believe that this environment will allow Mr. Trump to make comparisons he likes: the comparison between himself and Abraham Lincoln will flatter Mr. Trump. Trump gave a speech at Gettysburg four years ago during the campaign, calling it an “amazing place” and implying that the country was as divided as it was during the Civil War. He also said that this election was against him, and he plans to prosecute women who accused him of aggressive behavior (he never did).
Some aides have been pushing Trump’s own Washington hotel across the street from the White House as a hub for conference week. However, other Washington areas are currently being seriously considered.
Brian Ballard, Florida’s tallest Republican lobbyist and major party donor, said: “The convention has wiped out the dinosaurs,” and he was one of the main fundraisers for the convention for Jacksonville. . “But accepting speeches is more important than anything else. I hope they find an iconic position. It will be unique and make history.”
Mr. Trump also stated publicly and privately that he likes the idea of giving a nomination speech within the White House-technically this is legal, but it blurs the line between political candidates and civil servants. Other presidents are getting close-President Barack Obama shot two political ads from the West Wing Chief of Staff’s office in 2012-Trump’s advisers say if Trump is in his residence instead of in the presidential residence Speech, they will be in a solid legal position. West Wing.
However, so far, apart from the general theme of “America’s Forgotten Men and Women”, there is little certainty, and Mr. Trump is indecisive about signing any plan. Tim Murtaugh, the campaign’s director of communications, said the convention will still be “a celebration of what President Trump has achieved on behalf of all Americans.”
The aides said that they are planning programs to reflect the various stories emphasized during the State of the Union speech each year. Among them, the storytellers are ordinary Americans, telling how their lives are affected by opportunity zones, school choice scholarships or other factors. The impact of the story. Initiatives promoted by the government.
