Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s roundtable with Hispanic leaders, set for July 8 at Miami’s legendary Versailles restaurant and then rescheduled for Tuesday, is off again, a campaign spokeswoman said.
The businessman and part-time Palm Beacher had canceled at the last minute July 8 because of the previous evening’s assassination of five police officers in Dallas.
This time around, campaign spokeswoman Karen Giorno said late Monday, the campaign had tried to make the event happen but wasn’t able to synchronize with all the leaders on short notice. She said Trump will try again at another date.
Trump still is set to appear Tuesday, along with Gov. Rick Scott, at a private, no press, fundraising reception and dinner at Trump National Doral golf resort, west of Miami.
There’s a chance protestors will show.
“I wouldn’t be surprised,” Giorno said. “Anywhere he goes there’s protestors. They’re not going to get on property if they do.”
