President Trump’s campaign postponed a “Women for Trump” bus tour amid concerns about the coronavirus.
The three-day bus tour through Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania was supposed to start Monday, but the trip was quietly called off after an advisory was sent out last week, according tothe New York Times.
The tour featured 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, where an attendee tested positive for coronavirus.
A campaign spokeswoman said it had been postponed because of “scheduling conflicts.” However, two people familiar with the situation said the decision was made after Schlapp moved to postpone the tour because of the CPAC attendee. Schlapp’s husband, Matt Schlapp, interacted with the infected attendee during the conference.
