The Republican National Convention for the appointment of President Donald Trump for a second term in the White House, scheduled for August 24 in Charlotte, will not allow press access, CNN television says.
A spokesman for the convention has stated that journalists cannot personally report on the event, which is partially broadcast on the Internet. This is a decision that has been unprecedented in the country’s history and is due to restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Given the health restrictions and restrictions in the state of North Carolina, we plan to close the activities in Charlotte from August 21st to 24th,” this spokesman told CNN.
“We will be happy to report whether this changes, but we are working with the parameters of state and local regulations on the number of people who can attend events,” he said.
