Media to be barred from Trump election nomination

Washington: The Republican Party’s vote to nominate President Donald Trump as its candidate for the November elections will be held in private, without press in attendance, the media reported on Sunday.
A Republican National Convention spokeswoman gave coronavirus health guidelines as the reason, the BBC reported.
The party was “working within the parameters set before us by state and local guidelines regarding the number of people who can attend events”, the spokeswoman said on Saturday.
The 336 party delegates will meet on August 24 in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina to formally renominate Trump.
They will cast proxy votes for some 2,500 official delegates. Trump is the party’s sole remaining nominee, and his renomination will officially launch his re-election bid. (IANS)
