Amid continued weak polling, millionaire presidential candidate Donald Trump has canceled forthcoming rallies and events in Colorado, Nevada and Oregon. He'll still be attending fundraisers, reports Eliza Collins.
Trump was originally scheduled to make a speech on immigration in Denver on Thursday, but according to The Denver Post the speech has been postponed. The campaign said that his speech was "still being modified." Trump will, however, attend a fundraiser in Aspen, according to the Post.
Nevada's KTNV also reported Monday that Trump's Friday rally in Las Vegas was canceled, but his fundraiser in Lake Tahoe the same day is still on. According to KTNV, the campaign did not give a reason for the rally cancellation. He is expected to participate in a roundtable in Las Vegas, possibly on immigration.
Both a rally and fundraiser in Portland, Ore., scheduled for Aug. 31 were canceled, according to Oregon Public Broadcasting. The Trump campaign cited the Republican nominee's trip to Louisiana last Friday as the reason his calendar has been changed, according to OPB.
Probably just needs a break; for all the conspiracy theories put out about Hillary having a mysterious illness, Trump is 70 years old and never did release any medical info about himself that wasn't obviously written by himself.
Also, with a new campaign team, maybe radical changes are being made: the nigh-mythological pivot that only ever seems to be a pirouette. That said, his numbers are in such dire shape, you have to wonder if he's decided to coast and focus on what comes after November.
