Tropical Storm Fay cancels Trump's New Hampshire rally

President Trump's Saturday rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire will be postponed for one to two weeks due to storms slated to hit the area, his campaign announced Friday.

Tropical Storm Fay is set to approach the New Jersey coast late Friday and bring severe rain, wind, and potential flooding to the Northeast. The storm isn't expected to hit New Hampshire, but would make it hard for Trump to fly there from Miami, where he is spending the day meeting with Venezuelan residents and migrants.

The Portsmouth event was set to be the second of Trump's campaign rallies since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Trump's Tulsa rally in late June was later linked to an increase in coronavirus infections in the area.
