Donald Trump was slated to address his supporters at a scheduled political rally in Greensboro, North Carolina on July 15. But the former president was forced to cancel the event due to a subpoena in New York.

As reported by Axios, “former President Trump and his adult children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr., are scheduled to testify under oath on July 15 as part of a probe by the New York attorney general into his finances, a court filing revealed Wednesday.”

The conflicting development forced Trump and a host of Republican personalities have canceled their scheduled appearances Friday in Greensboro, the News&Observer reports.

“The American Freedom Tour had announced in May appearances in Greensboro by Trump, Trump Jr., television news personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, former New York state judge Jeanine Pirro, Pinal County (Arizona) Sheriff Mark Lamb and political commentator Dinesh D’Souza. The American Freedom Tour did not publicize that the event would no longer take place Friday, but quietly removed it from its website,” the Raleigh News & Observer reported Monday.

Tickets for the event initially sold for $9 to $3,955. People who bought tickets won’t be refunded. Instead, the organizer said: “We are very sorry that due to unforeseen circumstances we are rescheduling the American Freedom Tour stop in Greensboro, NC. Your ticket may be used at any American Freedom Tour event in America.”

The Trump family is being investigated by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

James said in January that her civil inquiry had found that the Trump Organization fraudulently overvalued multiple assets to secure loans and then undervalued them to minimize taxes.

The Manhattan district attorney is also conducting a probe into possible financial crimes and insurance fraud committed by the Trump organization.
