Today President Trump said he’s narrowed down possible locations for his acceptance speech to two places:
We have narrowed the Presidential Nomination Acceptance Speech, to be delivered on the final night of the Convention (Thursday), to two locations – The Great Battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and the White House, Washington, D.C. We will announce the decision soon!

Rob Reiner, one of the leaders of the Hollywood chapter of the anti-Trump Resistance, had this hot take:
Trump brilliantly narrows down the location of his acceptance speech. Either break yet another law and do it at the WH, or do it at Gettysburg and celebrate your devotion to White Supremacy.

It makes you wonder.
Meathead thinks the site of the pivotal Civil War battle symbolizes "White Supremacy."

Gettysburg was a great Union victory.

A National Park isn't a symbol of white supremacy. Shouldn't you be getting ready for lunch? pic.twitter.com/n49tNsF2sd

Except the Union won at Gettysburg.
Lincoln commemorated it. https://t.co/U7rCchkEti

But “celebration of white supremacy” or something.
