Trump rally in Nebraska postponed because of severe weather threat
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Former President Donald Trump’s rally in Greenwood has been postponed in anticipation of severe weather.
“I will not be coming to Nebraska tonight, but rather, weather permitting, will be there this Sunday night,” Trump said in a statement.
Chief Meteorologist John Dissauer said the biggest potential threat in the area Friday night could be strong, damaging winds.
He also said that hail, heavy rains and an isolated tornado are possibilities.
“The most important thing is to keep you safe, and that cannot be done with such a terrible forecast,” Trump said.
An official with the I-80 Speedway, where the rally was to be held, said by Friday afternoon, a race would have been canceled because people can’t get in and out of the parking lot when it rains.
The rally will now be held on Sunday.
Doors open at noon and the event will start at 5:00 p.m., according to Trump’s website.
