According to a report from The Hill, Donald Trump has canceled two upcoming campaign events.
The news comes just after The Hill reported on Monday that Trump planned to delay an immigration speech that was set for later this week.
Trump has canceled a Friday rally in Las Vegas scheduled at the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa, according to the Las Vegas Sun. His campaign didn’t say why the event was canceled.
The Republican nominee has also canceled an Aug. 31 rally and fundraiser in Portland, Ore., according to Oregon Public Broadcasting. Trump reportedly canceled the event due to scheduling changes.
“The campaign has decided to cancel the Aug. 31 fundraiser and rally in Portland as Mr. Trump has had to make changes to his calendar in the wake of the Louisiana flood disaster,” Trump’s Oregon campaign director Jacob G. Daniels told OPB.
“We look forward to having Mr. Trump and Gov. [Mike] Pence in Oregon at a later date.”
It’s been a rough few weeks for The Donald. Attempts by the campaign to pivot to a more conciliatory tone towards black voters have missed the mark, mainly due to Trump’s way of incorporating soft racism into this campaign rhetoric.
During a speech in the predominately white suburb of Dimondale, Michigan this Friday, Trump complained that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party are taking black voters for granted.
“You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58% of your youth is unemployed — what the hell do you have to lose? Trump said in an off-script moment.
