President Donald Trump said in a tweet Monday that he would accept his party’s presidential nomination at either the White House or in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Trump originally floated the White House as the location for accepting the Republican nomination location on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday.
We have narrowed the Presidential Nomination Acceptance Speech, to be delivered on the final night of the Convention (Thursday), to two locations – The Great Battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and the White House, Washington, D.C. We will announce the decision soon!

Trump said that he would announce the location of the acceptance speech soon. The speech is scheduled to take place on the final night of the convention, Aug. 27.
The announcement comes after several months of confusion surrounding the Republican National Convention due to the coronavirus pandemic. The GOP moved convention out of Charlotte, North Carolina, after Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper said he would not allow the event to occur without proper social distancing guidelines in place.
The Democratic National Convention Committee has had to make similar changes to its plans. Party officials cancelled most in-person events, originally scheduled to take place in Milwaukee.
“Leadership means being able to adapt to any situation. That’s what we’ve done with our convention” DNC Chair Tom Perez said in a statement in late June.
The Republican National Convention is scheduled for Aug. 24 – 27, and the Democratic National Convention and scheduled to run from Aug. 17 – 20.
