Ahead of his official nomination as the Republican presidential contender, Donald Trump sparked controversy for suggesting that he might deliver his speech from the White House.
While members of both parties expressed concern that the move could result in Hatch Act violations against elected officials engaging in political activities, Trump dismissed the warnings.
In his latest remarks on the matter, he said the White House remained one of two contenders for the location from which he will address the Republican National Convention.
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.,” he tweeted on Monday. “We will announce the decision soon!”
