North Carolina health department secretary, Mandy Cohen — who was appointed by Democrat socialist governor, Roy Cooper — told the press two weeks ago that the Republican National Convention, which is to be held in Charlotte, NC in June, is going to be a b “big challenge” if the COVID-19 cases keep rising.
North Carolina has been one of the least impacted states in the nation with the coronavirus with virtually no threat of running out of hospital beds or other needed medical supplies. Further, the number of deaths per 100,000 people are among the lowest in the world. Despite this fact, Governor Roy Cooper has, at the behest of the incompetent NC Department of Health, has continued to lead the state in a seemingly never-ending shutdown as tens of thousands of people are displaced from their jobs and losing their livelihoods.
Donald Trump sent a letter demanding a guarantee from Cooper that the Republican National Convention would be able to be held in Charlotte, as planned, with no restrictions. Cooper replied in a letter today essentially stating that it isn’t going to happen. Forget it.
Lt. Governor Dan Forest responded by releasing a statement condemning Cooper’s politically expedient actions.
