President Trump has reportedly canceled his plans to host an election night party at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., The New York Times reported Friday citing a person familiar with the plans.
The source told the Times that Trump will instead likely remain at the White House on Nov. 3.
During an interview on Fox News Friday morning, the president’s son Eric Trump confirmed that the party may be moved.
“We’re thinking about moving it, actually, over to the White House. We are looking at that right now. It’s going to be a great night,” said Eric Trump.
The Trump campaign last weekend sent fundraiser emails to donors announcing a drawing that would give one winner, along with a guest, the chance to be flown to the nation’s capital, where they would stay for free and attend the Nov. 3 party at Trump International as VIPs.
“November 3rd will go down in history as the night we won FOUR MORE YEARS,” the email read. “It will be absolutely EPIC, and the only thing that could make it better is having YOU there.”
However, Trump is trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in national polls, with the race much closer in several key battleground states.
