Trump forced to cancel North Carolina campaign event due to inclement weather

As he will be stuck in a New York courtroom for the lion's share of the next few weeks, former President Donald Trump has no choice but to maximize campaign opportunities on the weekends.

Sadly, his plans to do just that on Saturday were ruined when he was forced to cancel a rally in North Carolina due to inclement weather conditions as the Washington Times reports.

Plans scuttled

According to WRAL, Trump was slated to hold an event at Wilmington's Aero Center, which is the home to hangar space for private aviation aircraft at the Wilmington International Airport.

However, once the severity of the weather conditions became apparent, the event had to be cancelled a mere 25 minutes before the guest of honor was set to take the stage.

Instead, Trump called into the site of the rally and addressed those who had turned out to hear him speak.

“Ladies and Gentleman, this is your favorite president of all time,” he began, before stating, “They have asked us to ask people to leave the site and seek shelter.”

The former president went on to apologize for the event's cancellation and to pledge that he would reschedule a “bigger and better” event.

Unfair interference

Trump's inability to hit the trail other than on weekends has been a hot topic for the former president in recent days, and it was something he addressed on Friday outside of the Manhattan court room where his hush money trial is taking place, as the Post Millennial reported.

Describing the proceedings as a “rigged case,” Trump lamented that “instead of being in Pennsylvania or Georgia or North Carolina or a lot of other places today, I'm sitting in a courthouse all day long.”

Those sentiments were echoed by supporters who turned out in Wilmington to see the presumptive GOP nominee.

“It's political persecution, and if it were anybody else he wouldn't have to be dealing with it,” opined 28-year-old rallygoer Christian Armstrong.

Another attendee, LeeAnn Coleman, agreed, saying, “It's ludicrous that he's having to do this at all” instead of concentrating on “all the problems he wants to fix,” but it seems likely that, given his seemingly endless energy, Trump will find a way to get his message to the American electorate, one way or another.
