Donald Trump will not be making any money in North Carolina on Friday as his testimony in the NY fraud case against his company forced the cancelation of his for-profit rally.
The News & Observer reported:
Former President Donald Trump and a host of Republican personalities have canceled their scheduled appearances Friday in Greensboro. News of the cancellation comes as Axios reports Trump, his son, Donald Trump Jr., and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, have been scheduled to testify under oath Friday in an investigation into Trump’s finances.
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. Tickets for the event initially sold for $9 to $3,955.
Not only will Trump have to testify in the New York case against his company, but he will also miss out on a payday. Although, it is difficult to imagine who would spend $3,955 to hang out with Trump, his kids, and other conservative D-list grifters.
The Trumps said that they would honor any tickets sold in North Carolina at other tour events around the country, but there is only one other event scheduled and that is for August 20 in Wisconsin.
The event is supposed to be rescheduled, but the one thing that Donald Trump hasn’t offered his supporters who shelled out money for the event is a refund, which is a reminder that it is never a good idea to pay money to attend an event featuring someone who is being investigated for fraud in another state.
Donald Trump is the ultimate buyer beware.
