President Trump’s visit to Cape cancelled

U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Cape Girardeau was canceled this morning, due to the approaching Hurricane Florence. The Make America Great Again rally was scheduled for Sept. 13 at the Show Me Center.

“Regrettably, we must cancel the planned Make America Great Again rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, this Thursday,” Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said. “With Hurricane Florence on its way, we determined that this is the safest decision.”

The Cash-Book Journal will report any further updates.
