President Trump announced during yesterday's White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing that he is canceling the Republican National Convention events that were scheduled to take place next month in Jacksonville, citing the rising numbers of COVID-19 in the state.

Night one of the Republican National Convention will be in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday, August 24.
