The Trump campaign has reportedly called off a bus tour amid fears of the coronavirus.
According to Fox News:
President Trump‘s campaign canceled a three-day “Women for Trump” bus tour Monday that was slated to visit key battleground states, citing scheduling conflicts. The campaign pushed back against reports that the move was made over concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.
The tour was supposed to host events in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania with Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump; Kayleigh McEnany, a campaign spokeswoman; and Mercedes Schlapp, a former White House adviser whose husband oversees the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Erin Perinne, a campaign spokeswoman, cited scheduling conflicts for the cancellation, but two people familiar with the move told the New York Times that Schlapp pushed to postpone the tour after someone who attended CPAC tested positive for the virus.
The conference was held from Feb. 26-29 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Fort Washington, Md. Schlapp’s husband had interacted with the person infected during the event.
It remains unclear if more drastic measures will be taken.
