Trump's North Carolina Rally Cancelled Due to Severe Weather

 April 21, 2024

Mother Nature thwarted former American President Donald Trump's planned rally in Wilmington, North Carolina.

According to Daily Mail, the anticipated event was supposed to be Trump’s first public address following the initiation of his 'hush money' trial in New York.

The rally was highly anticipated by supporters and was expected to see Trump address a large crowd. However, severe thunderstorm warnings forced the cancellation shortly before it was due to commence.

Challenging Weather and Safety Precautions Take Precedence

With the locale presenting potential dangers like cranes acting as lightning rods, safety concerns became paramount. In response, Trump communicated via a one-minute audio message, emphasizing the importance of safety.

"It's a danger to all of this," Trump informed his audience. "And we want to make sure that everybody is safe." The sizable turnout underscored the strong support Trump continues to command, with many gathering hours early, securing prime spots at the event venue.

Despite the cancellation, that same day, Trump successfully participated in a fundraising event in Charlotte, which contributed $6 million to his campaign coffers. The fundraiser underscored his ongoing influence and fundraising prowess within the Republican party.

Trump’s Reactions and Criticisms on Social Media

Before the rally, Trump took to Truth Social to express his dissatisfaction with his ongoing trial. He did not hold back his opinions about the proceedings, especially targeting the judge and prosecutors involved.

Former President Donald Trump commented, "Instead they waited and brought it right in the middle of my presidential campaign against the worst and most incompetent president ever, crooked Joe Biden. It is being presided over by possibly the most conflicted judge in judicial history, who must be removed from this hoax immediately."

Anxiety among the supporters had been palpable earlier as they braved the foreboding weather. Vendors, ready for a bustling day, had stocked up on memorabilia. Despite the unfortunate turn of events, the mood was understanding of the necessity of the decision.

Community Reactions and Future Promises

The rally's cancellation left many disappointed, yet with a comprehension of the necessity for safety. Trump articulated his sorrow over the situation, promising a return for a future event.

"I'm so sad ... They are saying the weather is getting bad," he shared, his voice carrying a tone of heavy disappointment through the broadcasted message.

Cletus Leppo, a steadfast Trump supporter who was present at the site, expressed a resilient outlook despite the setback: "I'll be at the next one," he asserted confidently. In contrast, resident George Kopek mentioned that the trial had little impact on his daily life: "I haven't bothered to watch it. I have a lot of golf to play," he revealed, indicating the diverse interests of local constituents.


The planned rally in Wilmington serves as a poignant reminder of the unpredictable ways natural events can influence political activities.

Donald Trump's presence remains strongly influential in American politics, evidenced by both the anticipation for his rallied speech and the significant support at fundraising activities. The cancellation, while disappointing, highlighted issues of safety and the communal understanding of unforeseen circumstances. Trump has promised to reschedule, leaving supporters looking forward to another opportunity to hear him speak.
