NORTH CAROLINA, USA / OSLO (Dagbladet): – It is a bit down.
That’s what Trump supporter Luke Shelton told Dagbladet’s reporter in the USA, who is in place at the airport in Lafayette, North Carolina. Here, US President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold an election rally on Thursday.
However, this did not happen. The event had to be postponed due to tropical storm Zeta. Shelton, who had driven for one hour and 20 minutes to see the president, had to return home exhausted.
However, he understands that the meeting was canceled. According to a statement from the Trump campaign, reproduced by, among others, The Guardian, gusts of up to 80 kilometers per hour were forecast.
– I am a conservative, and this election meeting was close. Besides, this was the only day I had time off this week, so I decided to come, Shelton continues.
Trump won in North Carolina in 2016, but opinion polls now give Democrat challenger Joe Biden a narrow lead in the state, writes NTB.
